How to Do the Gentleman Dance Moves from PSY's Newest K-Pop Music Video

If you haven't heard of Korean pop sensation, PSY, then you really have been living under a rock. Or, you've just never run across any other human. Or, this is your first time on the Internet.

His absurdly popular music video, Gangnam Style, became the most viewed YouTube video EVER. Its catchy beat and awkward dance moves inspired millions of people to start dancing like PSY and his crew, from beautiful dance teams, to the horrible efforts of Nelly Furtado, to dance mobs across the world. Paper was even getting in on the action.

And guess what?

PSY has another sweet ass video out! It's called Gentleman and, of course, introduces another signature PSY dance move. Oh, and in less than a week it's already managed to amass almost 150 million views!

The video is great and actually pretty funny, but if you're like me, you're planning on doing that dance at the next party you go to.

Or, at least in the mirror.

But if you're not a professional choreographer, you're probably not going to get much help just by watching the music video. Lucky for you, as with any popular dance video, there are a ton of tutorials hitting the web from pro and wannabe dancers.

So, I've compiled some of the best tutorial videos so far, which will hopefully help even the most rhythmically challenged people learn the soon-to-be huge Gentleman dance.

Learn the Moves from PSY!

Here's a practice video released on PSY's YouTube channel, which is just a loop of the dance moves so you can get a better look on how it's done. If you've got any skills, I'm sure this will help you out.

Another Breakdown—Side by Side

If you want to learn from a pro and watch PSY do his thing at the same time, this video is for you. So, you basically see PSY in the music video while he teaches the dance moves.

Now, just like Gangnam Style, you're probably going to want to know what the hell PSY is singing, so since I am fluent in Korean, I have translated the lyrics for you below.

Just kidding, PolicyMic provided the translation.
