President Barack Obama hosted South Korean President Park Geun-hye at the White House on Tuesday. At a joint press conference in the afternoon, Obama mentioned a number of topics important to both nations: North Korea, the economy and trade...and "Gangnam Style."
"Of course around the world, people are being swept up by Korean culture, the Korean wave," Obama said. "As I've mentioned to President Park, my daughters have taught me a pretty good 'Gangnam Style.'"
Indeed, one of South Korea's most notable exports of the past year is the hit song by Psy, which has peaked at no. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has so far amassed a staggering 1.5 billion views on YouTube.
