PSY's new single steals attention away from North Korea

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean pop star PSY's first new single since his viral hit, "Gangnam Style," is stealing attention from inter-Korean tensions.

YG Entertainment, PSY's agency, says "Gentleman" was released in 119 countries Friday.

PSY co-composed the electronic dance music and wrote the lyrics for the song, which pokes fun at a self-proclaimed gentleman who enjoys his time at a dance club.

Bing: PSY releases 'Gentleman'

Tensions in South Korea are high, with residents wary of a possible missile test by the North. But South Korean Internet users were more interested Friday in PSY's new song than North Korea: "Gentleman" was the most searched keyword on top Web portals.

PSY's manager Hwang Kyu-wan says the video for "Gentleman" will be unveiled at his comeback concert in Seoul on Sunday and will then be uploaded onto YouTube.

WOW!  Maybe this fat little d-bag can write another song about killing American soldiers.  Nothing but a fat little anti-American (when it suits him) piece of crap!

I want his Haute Couture leather blazer fashion he wore in America last December. He was too much of an awesomely flaming gay dandy to be liked in America, except by me. 

People thought he sang, "Condom Style," to mean something like, "We're having great sex," but it was about expressing pride of vanity and ostentatious wealth by singing about Seoul's most spangled rich elite, "gu," or neighborhood where haute couture and 5" heels,  Rolls Royce's, and celebrities are every day routine. 

Dandyism is very much alive in Korea which is so cool, because it allows individualism. In the USA and Islamic countries, you'll get ostracized and gay bashed if you wear anything more than blue jeans and T-shirt.

well well well. seems like our little American hating guy here has a different view now that the north wants to nuke his country.... it is a bit ironic that in 2003 you were talking all kinds of crap about us when we went to Iraq and how you wanted us Americans to die.  this guy is a joke and his music is stupid as well.
