I have to–no, I MUST–blow the dust off my keyboard to knock some sense into the fools of the internet who insist that K-pop is the holy grail of all music and that Psy is some Illuminati warrior set out to destroy their blissful ideals of how K-pop is “supposed” to be.
No more than a couple hours ago was PSY’s newest MV released, Gentleman. I thought it was entertaining and cute; I’m always amused by how many places PSY records. But despite all that, there’s one thing that I can’t really shake from my mind: how far will this even go?
This wasn’t originally planned but, for whatever reason, it dawned on me to do this, and I can’t shake the feeling. I’ve decided to gather up some of my personal posts from 2012 and throw them into one huge article! I figure this will help me understand what I’m good at writing about, what I could work on, and what interests me the most. So, without further ado, let’s dive back into the year of 2012 here at Love’s Spell!
For whatever reason, I had a dream the other night starring Psy. I saw him on the VMA’s and it got me thinking: when will everyone get tired of him? Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally digging Psy and his fame around the world–it’s absolutely amazing. But when I saw an article stating that Psy had signed with international management, I was quite surprised. What was the reason behind it? Was there sincerity at all behind the decision? Was it done only because of Gangnam Style‘s popularity?
