The track, brazenly mocking the pretensions of those who wrongly associated with modes and styles Gangnam Seoul sprauncy - a kind of South Korea, Beverly Hills - what has been called a " peacekeeping force in the world, "Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Not bad for a bunch of dance moves involving an accessory with his legs like a horse, his hands crossed at the wrists as if holding the reins, followed by a whipping action. Flash Mobs 30,000 people danced Gangnam style. Boris Johnson said Gangnam style danced with David Cameron at Chequers weekend. Barack Obama promised Michelle Gangnam dance style to the White House. This is the way to keep a relationship alive.

Therefore, Psy was called to teach dance to others. He taught Britney Spears. He taught Justin Bieber. And now the poor devil must teach me a man who, when they handed the feet, was clearly in line with the brand "fish." We are in the middle of a ballroom at the Dorchester Hotel in London, followed by his entourage and a team of photographers and video there to record the moment for posterity not thank us for the effort. He shows me the double jump from one foot to the other, a random rhythm that must be mastered before crossing into dolls games. Levanto copy on the right foot, and ...

But let us stop here for now, standing in the middle of an empty ballroom, I lifted one foot twisted inward, Psy me as if I'm afraid of falling. (I May) Is a few hours ago, we met at the headquarters of the BBC Radio 1 roadshow Psy and just roll into town. The day before, he spoke to students at the Oxford Union, in English he learned during four years of study in the United States. You now have a shiny limousine, a herd of paparazzi objective tumescent and a crowd of fans waiting.

Psy hear interviewed on radio and television during our time together, and as expected, there will be a series of lines of action which again, is no less true for repetition. "I do not call that success," says DJ Scott Mills, a journalist from Radio 1


, Jonathan Ross and finally to me. "It is a phenomenon. This is not for me. 'S Made by the people. "

He knows the difference. The fact is that all Psy may be new to many of us, success is nothing new to him. "The style of Gangnam" is a single from her sixth album. Took it topped the charts in South Korea for a dozen years, which means that the character has been unleashed on the world - is a character - is fully formed.'s important is to understand the character, how you start from people who claim to be intelligent in the way it is perceived in Gangnam, where he grew Psy.

"I'm not beautiful," she said, and it is useless to argue with him. Despite his charisma, which is exceptional.
