Psy Calculates Snoop Dogg’s ‘Hangover’ Video Math: 8 Hours Of Shooting, 10 Hours Of Partying

Psy did the “Gangnam Style” thing and made 2 billion people very happy. It was cute, silly and fun to dance to at weddings and your 5-year-old niece’s birthday party.

But now the South Korean superstar is ready to seriously party, like, adult style. And when it’s professional tipping you’re after, the first (and probably only) person on your list should be Snoop Dogg.

“What I thought was I should refresh myself, and people, that I’m doing something different, so I thought about maybe changing genres,” Psy told MTV News about the retro 808 hip-hop style beat on his just-released single, “Hangover.” When he wrote the track, Psy was searching for a catchy hook, and, shocker, he came up with the perfect one the morning after a night of serious “over drinking.”

Earlier this week, I passed out watching YouTube music videos on my Xbox One late at night. When I eventually awoke, I heard this angelic voice in my headset.

Published on Jun 24, 2014
The music video of J-Min's 후(後) is released.
후(後) is an acoustic ballad song, which can best describe J-Min's clear and pure voice. This song is once featured as the OST of Drama 'Miss Korea' with the title 'Hero' in last February and newly released after arrangement.



After watching the video several times, I searched for an English-subbed version.

Here's some recent live performances.
