When JW and his family dropped me off at Gangnam Station, I encountered this memorable bit of tackiness:

As much as I've voiced my dislike for Itaewon on this blog, I'm also not that big a fan of the Gangnam section of Seoul, and this is one reason why: it's way, way too self-conscious, too full of itself. PSY's song was a parody of this mentality, and Gangnam co-opted PSY's parody and turned it into an earnest endorsement of the district. Good Christ.
