Since the non-event "End of the world maya Style" crap is now over and gone...
I have to admit that THE world news event has been "Psy - Gangnam Style".
Even if I said in the past that electronic music (like techno-trance-dance-house...) would overtake hip hop...
I was even surprised by this crazy "Gangnam Style" phenom that took the world on like an Asian tsunami.
And unless a real one like the one in Japan, happen in the coming 4 days, it won't be the latest killing in the US, Obama's re-election, hurricane Sandy or any other world event like the Palestinians vs Israelis conflict or even Syria that will top them off.
Nop ! the one event to take note is how a Korean song has made it's way as THE cultural event of 2012.
Not a Chinese, Spanish, French or even English song for despite Adele's incredible talent, The Rolling Stones and the money put in Justin Bieber's publicity...
A crazy a** Korean took over the world !
Despite his past stupid comments, his stupid dance moove and his stupid attire... the guy has put Asia in the center spot !
So, I think now's the time (specially for the conservative ones) to really look beyond 'our own reality' for the year to come !
