After Sky News‘ inclusion of the global popularity of PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ in it’s ‘Strange News’ segment. It seems that ITN News (ITV’s news website), Daily Mail, Yahoo! News UK & Ireland and the BBC have also jumped on the bandwagon!
Both of these pieces are a little kinder in the way that they express themselves. ITN‘s video report says that we have all been reminded how much we love ‘Geek Chic’ thanks to the energetic K-pop singer, where the Daily Mail‘s, BBC‘sand Yahoo! News‘ online articles simply stuck to the facts.
It will probably be better accepted by the K-pop fans that were slightly annoyed at Sky News’ dubbing of the K-pop genre as “bland”.
It seems that the immense popularity of PSY’s track cannot be ignored. Especially when the song is being used by South Korea’s presidential candidates and in events like Stockholm’s Pride Parade!
