With the release of Psy’s new song “Gentleman”, there are diverse opinions about it. Here were some of the positive reactions expressed on April 12: “It’s a cleverly done piece.” “It’s certainly more targeted at the global market than ‘Gangnam Style.’” “It’s addictive, like ‘Gangnam Style,’ yet classy as well.” “I became addicted to it after listening to it only twice. I’ve just kept listening to it.” Negative reactions included: “It won’t have a big impact.” “This song contains too many different things, which makes it chaotic.” “It doesn’t live up to the standard of ‘Gangnam Style.’” “Some of the lyrics sound like cursing.”
“Gentleman” was released in 119 countries of the world at midnight local time. The song starts with Psy’s low murmuring voice with an electronic sound and a somewhat slow beat. Overall, the song is slower than “Gangnam Style,” and it has witty lyrics mixed with dialect and slang.
Yoo Gun Hyung, who composed “Gangnam Style,” played a role as a composer again, and Jo Su Hyun directed a music video, just as he did for “Gangnam Style.” Lee Ju Sun, the head of the choreography team, took a dance part in this performance.
Psy is going to hold a solo concert titled Happening, at the Seoul World Cup Stadium starting at 6:30 p.m. on April 13.
