Ever since my dear friend Rocky Jo showed me PSY’s “Gangnam Style” video on his iPhone, this song/video/dance has infiltrated my thoughts and life pretty much every single day. I really do have this song stuck in my head all the freakin’ time and it’s kind of annoying (thanks, Rocky!). Now with all these parodies that are coming out… well, shoot, it seems that we’ll be Gangnam stylin’ for awhile kinda like how we were party rockin’… (and well, the truth is, I’m still shufflin’).
This was the first parody I saw. Gotta love the JK guys.
David So can totally pull off PSY… it’s kinda uncanny.
I love this one cuz’ it’s so close to home. Totally LOL’d at David Choi’s part.
Alright, I’m gonna throw in a little bit of criticism here… I’m starting to think this was a lot better watching it as a feature. Things are still only just warming up. So far I can’t say these have been very strong stand alone pieces and seems like the biggest complaint is that they’re too short (though they are all over 6 minutes, which IMO is too long for YouTube). With that said, if we were comparing this to watching a TV show once a week vs. renting the entire season on DVD, I’d prob just wait for all webisodes to drop so that I could watch them back to back. By no means does this mean it sucks… it’s GREAT as a whole, so keep watching! :]
Btw, if you’re in the LA area, you can actually see the feature length version on June 8th at the brand new CGV Theaters in K-town!
Winner of the 2010 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival Special Jury Award in the Narrative category for “Best First Feature!” Here’s a lil’ video I captured of Daniel “DPD” Park’s acceptance speech (shot w/ my ghetto digital camera):
5 out of 7 of the webisodes actually premiered as a feature-length at a sold out screening at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival this past Saturday. ‘Twas definitely a good night for “Ktown Cowboys” with lots of buzz.
Now that the first episode has been released online, expect to see the rest in the coming weeks. If you like it, please comment, subscribe, favorite, and share!
