Big Bang′s G-Dragon Gave Psy the Idea to Use Brown Eyed Girls′ Dance for ′Gentleman′
It turns out the man who brought up the idea of using Brown Eyed Girls′ Abracadabra dance for Psy′s Gentleman was Big Bang′s G-Dragon.
Psy has been dancing the dance for his new single Gentleman, even paying copyright fees to use the dance.
Lee Joo Sun, Psy′s choreographer, had said, “We have a great dance. We thought up 50 different dances, everything from a sports dance to an animal dance, but we finally decided that [Brown Eyed Girls′] dance fits the song best.”
The decision was apparently affected by another man, and a recent Twitter conversation revealed just who it was.
Psy tweeted to G-Dragon, “You danced the [Abracadabra] dance as soon as you heard the song, and that′s why we thought of using it.”
To this G-Dragon answered, “I′m good at that dance.”
His skill in the dance was previously shown off in a music show, when G-Dragon shook his hips in an imitation of the dance in front of the camera.
Psy′s music video to Gentleman has passed 150 million views in just six days.

PSY Sweeps the Charts with ‘Gentleman’
Psy is finally back and neatly sweeping all the charts.
On April 12, Psy released his long-awaited song,Gentleman at midnight all across the globe.
Almost immediately, Gentleman’ rose to the top of the Korean music charts, including Mnet, Soribada, Naver Music, Olleh Music, Bugs, Melon and more, proving that the Psy effect is still working.
The song was created by Psy and producer Yoo Gun Hyung, who was also half the brain behind Gangnam Style. With clever and witty lyrics, mixed in with a little bit of Korean dialects and catchy English phrases, Gentleman has been addictive, but at the same time, receiving very mixed reviews.
Nonetheless, everyone seems to waiting for the music video of this song, which will feature cameo appearances by Brown Eyed Girls’ Gain and the cast of Infinity Challenge.
Meanwhile, Psy will be performing the song live for the first time on April 13 at his Happening concert.
