What? Rap?

I had seen the advertisements on television for Big Brother and a strange dance that they are promoting, and knowing that the dance moves and music hail from Korea and a Korean singer, so I went to find out more.

There are many videos on Yout Tube, but this one is a performance of 'cheer leaders' which was created to inspire the Korean Olympic team for the 2012 London Olympics.

Clearly it is a big budget performance - and one of the interesting things that I found is that it appears that it was filmed in an amazing park that I visited when I was in South Korea in 2009.

It looks to be Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul which was built some 600 years ago, and re constructed in recent times.  It is an amazing place to explore some of the history of South Korea, and the array of costumes worn by those who work there is spectacular.

On the day I was there, there was a special event which had not been re enacted previously.  It was quite a performance by a historical organisation.

So who is Psy?  What is that all about?  Psy is a Korean singer, songwriter, musician who created Gangnam Style - a rap dance routine which seems to be taking the world by storm.  Now, I am not rapper, but it certainly looks a lot of fun, and it seems it has found its way to Australia and the Brg Brother






Gangnam Style?  It appears that the Rap song has been named after the area in Seoul where Psy has lived.  He's studied Music in the USA and is clearly quite a talent.  Why the horses?  One of the moves is call the 'horse move' and is supposed to mirror the actions of riding a horse.  Sounds a bit of fun.
