dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: Gangnam Style has taken the teen culture by force. The music video has gone viral and the song's creator, a dude who goes by the name of Psy, has achieved world fame with his crazy horse dance. It's a pastiche of quick cuts of locales from the Gangnam gu, the ultra-wealthy neighborhood south of the Han River here in Seoul. This neighborhood is home to trust fund babies who will spend 2000 won--about $2--on ramen for lunch then turn around and spend 6000 won on a cup of designer coffee. At least one major US magazine suggests that the video is a social commentary on the class differences in South Korea's capital city. Whatever. More importantly, the video has sparked a parody by the University of Oregon featuring their mascot, the Duck. Standing by to hear... Oppan. Jayhawk style. #ceas #hacker #southkorea
