During the Music video, you see a guy continually posing a "lavish lifestyle" even though around him is a life that is not.
It opens with him at the beach, but you zoom out and he's in a playground.
You see him in a horse stable and walking into snow, but it's a warehouse and it's actually garbage.
Instead of a limo, he's in a bus filled with old women.
And so on.
Now, Gangnam is a very rich district in Seoul, Korea, known for it's very extravagant lifestyle. What we see is a guy, who we can assume is poor or common, acting like he has this very rich lifestyle. The chorus is him telling a girl that he has this rich lifestyle, but is foiled by the lyrics were he wants a girl whose down to earth and real.
What I grabbed from the song itself, personally, is the emphasis on being comfortable with who you are not trying to chase lavish lifestyles to elevate your standing, if so you'll only end up looking silly and weird.
Way cool, didn't know that.ohnolookout wrote:I'm Korean and I approve of this post.
