I have mixed feelings.
I love Psy. He is so hilarious. The video was supposed to be funny, and a lot of people have ventured out from there.
However, now everyone assumes ALL Korean, Japanese etc Pop/rock Music is goi to be like Gangnam Style.
I've been into Kpop in particular for a long time. People think it's wierd, I think these artists are amazingly talented. I don't care about image, I want to see people who can actually sing and be creative and have presence on stage.
If you'd like to see another side of the music, check these out.

Listen to Daesung's (The blonde) voice. He in particular has SO much power to his voice. He has damaged vocal chords as well and he STILL can do that.

Now, if you want a tearjerker, check out this one.
The idea behind this video is that the girl discovered she was sick (Most of us assume it's cancer) and she broke up with her boyfriend and got with his best friend so he wouldn't be upset. At the end, the guy's friend tells him the truth, gives him the ring, and apologizes for lying...Just to find out the girl died during an operation before he got to see her again.

Personally, I don't care what language you sing in, how you perform, what you're singing about...I want talent and performance, not some pretty face who couldn't sing a note but gets blown up anyway. I love all music, american, korean, japanese, spanish, british...Hell, even some german and finnish. However, this K-pop has stolen my heart.
