(Newser) – So much for "Assarabia": PSY's new single is out, and it carries the innocuous title of "Gentleman." Quite a few outlets are wondering what exactly the song, which features a mixture of Korean and English lyrics, is about; according to the AP, it "pokes fun at a self-claimed gentleman who enjoys his time at a dance club." Still, that doesn't explain everything: Vulture wonders, "What is a 'mother-father-gentleman'?" while Popdust thinks PSY is singing about gonorrhea at one point.

As for whether the song is any good, Kevin Fallon writes at the Daily Beast that it sounds "a little bit like 'Safety Dance' by Men in Hats, kind of like an LMFAO club track, exactly like 'Gangnam Style,' and a lot like noise." If you liked "Gangnam Style," he concludes, "you will like this song, because it is, basically, the same song." But the Internet seems to love it, the Huffington Post reports. PSY will debut the dance that goes along with the song tomorrow, live from Seoul's World Cup Stadium, at 5:30am.

Is this Kim Jong? I'm sure he got the idea from Roddman.

The video (once it comes out) to this song is what may save it.

Send this asshole back to South Korea and hopefully they put him on the border to North Korea.
