President Barack Obama hosted South Korean President Park Geun-hye at the White House on Tuesday.
Rami Eid's insight:

Psy's Hit Gangnam Style has created such a big buzz worldwide that even the President of the United States of America is talking about it, and how his daughters have told him about it.

 

Pros:

1) Exposure of a musical genre most of us did not know about. (Korean Pop).

2) Greatest Youtube Hit

3) Brings Cultures Together such as the American culture with the Korean Culture.

 

Cons:

1) Foreign Language. Most people in the United States enjoy the song because it is catchy yet we do not understand the words he is saying.

2) Overplayed. Overplaying a song causes people to get annoyed by the song.

3) Traps Korean Pop. It might not be true but many people would consider Korean pop to sound similar to Gangnam style since it was the first song to truly expose that genre. Many people may not have enjoyed that song and may think all the other songs sound the same.
