Unlike all other K-pop which is a barely disguised rip off of western music.

He graduated from the Berklee College of Music, so "uniquely Korean" might be a stretch.

nautilus,

I've been reading some of your posts on the forum and our grammar is shockingly bad. And to think that people pay you to teach them English! Very Happy

There is no doubt that our grammar is shockingly bad, but what about nautilus'?

Psy is one of the acts from Korea that I actually like in the same way I like Western acts.

Some of his earlier songs are really quite good and the footage I've seen of his concerts look damn impressive too.

I do find it funny that the song to make a big impact in the States was one that was written without any intention of trying to get big in anywhere other than Korea
