Good Lord I feel old. I remember this being a huge deal over here in the U.S. when it came out. I only knew of PSY through the YG Family special on Strong Heart so this was my first comeback of his. I never knew that he was already famous but had his career beset by controversy. PSY was everywhere on American television too and was most Americans' (at that point) exposure to K-Pop.
