Psy Releases New Version of 'Gangnam Style', 'Oppa You're My Style!' [Video]

Today, August 15 (KST) Psy released his new version of "Gangnam Style" featuring 4minute HyunA called ,"Oppa You're My Style."

Psy's official twitter also mentioned the release of the new music video.

This music video features HyunA's version of the song as she repeats the phrase, "Oppa You're My Style." Psy states that HyunA is his ideal type of woman.

HyunA sings the song from a woman's point of view, claiming that Psy is 'just her style'. HyunA is wearing a cute yet sexy white dress as she dances a sexy dance instead of the usual 'horse-riding' move.

Many of the scenes from the original music video are switched with HyunA playing Psy's role and vice versa.

When Psy sings, "You're my style," HyunA replies with, "Yes, I'm your style."

The song ends with both of them dancing the 'horse-riding' move together.

HyunA is a member of the popular girl group 4minute with hit songs such as "Volume Up" and "Hot Issue." She has also released solo albums with her hit song, "Change" and "Bubble Pop," which received over 9 million hits on Youtube in just 2 weeks. She was also featured as Korea's hottest artists under the age of 21.

Many are curious to see if the second version of this music video will also go viral just like the first one.

The song Little Apple from a music video made by the Chopsticks Brothers has taken China by storm ever since its release. This is also the song used in the hilarious parody video starring Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un that North Korea wants erased from the internet. But the adventures of grass root talent and music duo Chopsticks Brothers didnt start with, or will it end with this unique music video.

This MV is actually a promotional short for a new movie called Old Boy: The Way Of The Dragon.Without any marquee stars or a big budget, the movie with a unique mix of comedy, action and music became a blockbuster within 4 days of its release despite strong competition from such big name movies as Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Xiao Yang and Wang Taili, who team up as the Chopsticks Brothers, rose to fame when their 42-minute micro-film called Old Boys went viral after it was posted to the Youkou video portal site in 2010. The story of two struggling young musicians deeply touched a chord with the Chinese generation that grew up in the 1980s. When their micro-film got over 75 million views, Youkou decided to invest in making a feature film version with the Chopsticks Brothers. The path from micro-film to full-feature film has actually unleashed a revolutionary trend in the movie-making industry in China, and Chopsticks Brothers Xiao and Wang have seen their dream come true.

Heres the promotional MV, Little Apple, with Chopsticks Brothers. Its interesting to note that the story in the MV is more of a spoof on the movies plot about the two musicians traveling to New York to seek success. There is no explanation why some of the dialogue is in Korean. But dont worry, this MV is subbed in English.

Just like the craze for Korean musician Psys Gangnam Style, the fervor for Little Apple has also excited people to create imitation videos or perform flash dances using the catchy song with an upbeat tempo. Here are some really fun ones!

Flash dance inside Qingdao University:

When asked why they used an apple as the motif for their song, songwriter Wang Taili answered simply that apples are full of nutritional value and are good for ones health. The initial song only took 3 or 4 days to write, but then it took them 38 revisions to finally simplify the song to its current form to make it an easy to sing and dance to. Wang said that hes actually an optimistic person and wanted a happy song.

Is Ylvis' 'The Fox' The New 'Gangnam Style' Music Video Goes Viral, Enters Top 30 In Billboard Chart

Is Ylvis' 'The Fox' The New 'Gangnam Style' Music Video Goes Viral, Enters Top 30 In Billboard Chart

Is Ylvis' 'The Fox' The New 'Gangnam Style?' Music Video Goes Viral, Enters Top 30 In Billboard Chart Ylvis The Fox, the next Gangnam Style? (Photo Credit: Facebook) Psy may have secured his place in viral history with "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman," but a new music video by Ylvis titled "The Fox" may be the next viral sensation.

Ylvis is a variety show duo from Norway consisting of brothers Brd Urheim Ylvisker and Vegard Urheim Ylvisker, which debuted in 2000.

"The Fox" is produced by Norwegian producers Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen (aka Stargate). Given their collaboration history with Rihanna, Beyonce, and Ne-Yo, the success of "The Fox" may not be much of a surprise.

"The Fox" is a music video released to promote their TV talk show, "I kveld med Ylvis"("Tonight With Ylvis"). After uploading September 3, the video has garnered nearly 40 million views and has been even caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres.

"It is the most amazing video I've seen in a long time. The song does not leave my head," raves Ellen Degeneres on a recent episode of her talk show.

"I don't know a lot about Norway, but I'm going to assume marijuana is legal there."

After catching Ellen's eye, Ylvis will make an appearance on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," making it their first appearance on American television.

In addition, "The Fox" has even entered the Billboard charts at number 29. Thanks to the new amended rules that incorporate YouTube views, the song has become the third most streamed song behind "Harlem Shake" by Baauer, Psy's "Gentleman," and One Direction's "Best Song Ever."

So, will Ylvis and "The Fox" become their "Gangnam Style?"

Yet there was a time when even his manager Scooter Braun didn't believe that Psy could ever recreate the success of "Gangnam Style"--the most watched YouTube clip in history, seeing him as more of a one-hit wonder.

"When Scooter Braun first contacted me, he was not interested in who I was as an artist," Psy said Monday on the South Korean radio show, "Bae Chul-soo's Music Camp."

"He wanted to buy my copyright to 'Gangnam Style' so that he could mix it up and have Justin Bieber sing it."

Psy decided that he and Braun should discuss the matter in person, so he hopped a plane to the U.S. to meet with his future manager.

"It was during my flight that Scooter Braun got to see one of my concert clips," Psy said. "He wanted to know whether I can speak English and, if so, he wanted to sign a contract with me."

Braun became Psy's manager, "Gangnam Style" became an international juggernaut and the rest, as they say, is history.

And about that talk of him being a one-hit wonder?

Psy's video for "Gentleman" has already broken YouTube records for a second time, after it was watched 50 million times in the first 24 hours it was online.

"Gentleman" decimated the previous record for most views in a single day held by the video for Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" which got a mere 8 million views.

Hot on the heels of the smash hit follow-up to "Gangnam Style," Psy will again be flying to the U.S., to begin a promotional tour starting on Thursday.

Only this time, with Braun in his corner and the world at his feet, we're guessing he's flying first class.

Review: A

Review: A "Gentleman" He Is Not: Psy Raises The Stakes With Gross-Out "Gangnam Style" Follow-Up [VIDEO]

Psy

In the ironically titled Gentleman, Psy throws all pretexts of being cool out the window, portraying himself as a terrible person.The Farrelly brothers must be proud.

The directors of seminal gross-out comedies like "Something About Mary" and "Dumb and Dumber," are masters at turning the disgusting into comic gold.

And somewhat surprisingly, so is Psy.

While there are self-deprecating comic bits in "Gangnam Style," such as Psy in the sauna or on the toilet, at its core, the international K-pop icon's breakthrough hit is about a guy who gets the girl and then does his um, horse dance with her.

In the ironically titled "Gentleman," Psy throws all pretexts of being cool out the window, portraying himself as a terrible person.

He pulls a chair out from under his date. He pushes her to the ground when she stands up. He kicks a group of kids' soccer ball into the bushes. And it gets worse from there.

Yet like a Farrelly brothers film, things that sound horrible to describe, are hilarious to watch in "Gentleman."

The video includes, as one might expect, several nods to "Gangnam Style."

Korean rap star Yoo Jae Suk is back, again wearing his iconic yellow suit. Only this time, Psy presses all of the buttons in his hotel elevator when he needs to use the bathroom.

Again there are Korean girls sunbathing, but this time Psy is pulling one girl's bikini string.

In an era where pop stars are expected to be somewhere between spokesmodels and teen idols, it's refreshing to see adult content (the kind of things you watched as a kid when your parents weren't looking) in a mainstream music video.

It was a daring move, and everything about the look of the "Gentleman" video shows an artist and a director who wanted to raise the stakes.

There are more elaborate dance scenes than "Gangnam Style" with more dancers. The amount of action packed in each frame is dizzying.

And in addition to being a visual leap forward, the "Gentleman" music video also manages to deliver more laughs than most sitcoms.

Musically, Psy didn't take many chances.

The track, which is a burner, is basically a new riff on "Gangnam Style"'s 1980s techno studder-snyths.

But though it may not be a departure sonically from the video that earned him 1.5 billion YouTube views (the most in history), "Gentleman" is a better version of the same thing.

With its slightly slower, more grinding beat, "Gentleman" is sure to ignite dance floors around the world.

Both the video and the song are better than "Gangnam Style," yet they are also more edgy. Some parents might not want kids under 12 watching it, which may effect its mass appeal.

Whatever happens, "Psy" is in the rare position of competing with himself. And no one can expect him to get a billion views every time he releases a video.

Yet with over 67 million YouTube views already in the two days since it was released, Psy is well on his way to another juggernaut with "Gentleman."
