This Korean K-Pop video is the most watched video in the whole history of YouTube. More than any other that's ever been on YouTube. The name refers to the rich Gangnam district of Seoul, where the average apartment rent is US$10,000.

O.K. - If that's true, then I apologize for the misinformation. I was going by the claim made on the current homepage of this site Geography Home Page - Geography at About.com . You can also see on there, a link to a National Public Radio discussion of K-Pop music.

It really appeals to the younger folks than older ones.. that aside, i think it is just funny. If anything, it kinda gives KPop a negative view....KPop is really not silly like this..

Kpop usually seems overproduced and you see these groups singing about the same ****e. Gangnam style comes along-and even though I'm kind of tired of hearing it by now-it's charming, vibrant, funny sexy, satirical fun, with awesome dance moves. I think the world appreciates a good laugh, someone who entertains, and someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously like Psy; especially during these times.

Korean Tacos are more of a Californian Fusion Stye food originating in Los Angeles. I highly doubt you will be able to find Korean Tacos in Korea.
