The Subversive Side of PSY

PSY's two new songs may very well be a shallow boast on hooking up with hot chicks in his 40s, but we discuss possible subversive themes behind the music.

What Most Fans Miss in GFriend's "FINGERTIP"
00:35:01
GFriend's "Fingertip" may appear to be a dream-centered story in the music video, but what most people miss is the Greek mythology driving the narrative in this latest hit. Post-production note: we were wrong about "Navillera" meaning 'butterfly' in Spanish. It sounds like this was more based off of "Navi" sounding like 'butterfly in korean.
