He's not. It's Gangnam, which is a location in Korea that houses a large 'korean-hipster' population. The song is basically parodying their attire.

When I saw him interviewed he said he was laughing at middle-class 'gansta' wannabe idiots.

Seems like Korea has it's share of those ludicrous fools too.

I can't believe I actually watched the entire ridiculous thing. The only reason I did was because I wanted to see why everyone was watching it. What a joke. I was definitely under-impressed . Doesn't matter if you understand him or not, it's stupid.
