On the December 22 episode of "Encyclopedia of Useless Facts 2," the last location for the show's tour was Gangnam District in Seoul.


While talking about the neighborhood and its relation to Psy's megahit, Yoo Hee Yeol shared why he thinks the song "Gangnam Style" ended up being so popular worldwide.



"There is only one reason," he said, "It's the 'horse dance.'" For Yoo Hee Yeol, the fact that a specific dance move makes a viewer want to mimic it, does the job.

He expressed that the phenomenon is no different from Wonder Girls'"Tell Me" or Michael Jackson's moonwalk; as soon as there is an element of 'repetition,' you will have yourself a hit. "It should not end just with the video -- it must be reproduced."
