The most famous Korean song in the world, is about to get its statue in the capital city of South Korea, Seoul.
The worldwide hit by the South Korean singer Psy will soon be celebrated by a monument erected in the upscale neighborhood of Seoul which gave the name to the song. The statue will represent two overlapping fists, a reminder of the choreography of the artist.
It’s not a surprise because “Gangnam style” is the most successful song in the whole history of the country. The song has been appreciated in the whole world! On Youtube, it has exceeded billions views.
“Thanks to this video song, Gangnam has become a landmark for our district,” said the director of the tourism department of Gangnam. “Tourists can take pictures under the statue and the song will play automatically when you stand there,” he added.
It’s the first time a song interpreted in Korean language gets so much success in the whole world.
