Featuring: Wang Ji Hye, because she's always elegant.

Because I might as well make a Gangnam Style set. Especially since the song contains my favorite Korean word (maybe even everyone's favorite Korean word), "oppa". 

For the curious, "oppa" is what Korean girls and women call men who are older than they are, like their older brothers or friends. It's also what they call their boyfriends. The folks over at Dramabeans call it "the most powerful word in the Korean language" because "it's the one word that men are powerless against." Heh. 

Gangnam, or Kangnam, on the other hand, is one of the most affluent districts in Seoul, and even in all Korea. So if you talk about an oppa who is Gangnam style, he would be a pretty rich (and I would suppose indulgent) boyfriend.

(Please forgive any inaccuracies; I'm not Korean, just a K-drama, K-pop, and K-culture addict. :D )

Translation:

Oppa is Gangnam style
Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humane during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two

You know what I’m saying
Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh
