Top 8 Gangnam Style Psy's Poses
One of the main reasons why Psy has been so successful is because of his 'swag'. He has been showing off his confidence in variety ways, and that's the essence of what makes who he is. Here are top 8 poses and dance moves you want to show off on the Halloween day for perfect Gangnam Style.
8. One Thumb Up
Although this is not part of his dance routine nor a part of the music video, he has been showing off his positive attitude with his one thumb up gesture. Surprisingly he has been using his left hand on all the photos we have found. Make sure to smile! He does not have that serious expression.
7. Listening to the Crowd
It's not well known outside of Korea that he is actually an amazing performer on the stage. He does the listening gesture to encourage the crowd to sing along. During his rap in Gangnam Style, there are several repetitive words such as "Yuh Ja (girl)" and "Sa Na Yi (guy)" , and that's when he does this gesture. Compare to #8, he has pretty serious look in his face.
Again, this is his well known stage performance gesture. He recognizes his fans in the crowd by pointing at them to acknowledge their presence. This is perfect gesture to do on the peak of the song when he says "Oppan Gangnam Style" after brief silence. He looks even more serious here.
5. Final Pose
This is how he ends the song. This pose was also featured on the album cover of his 6th album as you see on this picture. I don't know why he is illustrated as a mermaid, but who cares.. It's psy. I think this is perfect pose to do when the girls are checking you out or the strangers want to take pictures of you.
4. Drag and Shuffle Dance
#4.#3a and #2 are the dance routines that you MUST learn. In the next article I am going to cover these routines in more detail with step by step instruction. Psy usually starts his Gangnam Style performance with this drag and shuffle dance. This actually requires more coordination and the energy than the famous Horse Dance. Everyone can do #2 and #3, however, not many will be seen with this dance move. Be the hero of the party by busting out this move.
3. Cowboy Dance
This is another variation of the famous invisible horse dance, but you swing your arms around as if you are throwing a lasso around circle above your head. Make sure to first master the horse dance then move on to this one. Again, master this one before you leave your house.
2. The Invisible Horse Dance
Do I need to say anything here?
1. Yelling at a Butt
This probably does not deserve to be the #1 spot here. But I would like to give all the guys a good news. This Halloween, dressing up like Psy, you have every right to Yell at all the beautiful booties out there, and you won't be slapped. This is one of the most well recognized scenes in the music video that SNL made sure to include this in the skit.
So what do you think? Do you agree with this list? Is there something I have missed here? Please let me know. I will make sure to do some investigation.
Don't forget that you really need the outfit that goes along with these moves / posses.
