[Learn Korean Words with K-Pop – 강남 스타일 (Gangnam Style) by Psy]

강남 [gang-nam] is basically 강(river)+남(south), and the term is used to refer to a wide area south of the Han River in Seoul, Korea, which includes the districts of 강남구 [Gang-nam-gu], 서초구 [Seo-cho-gu],and 송파구 [song-pa-gu]. These districts are relatively upscale and lavish compared to other areas in Seoul. They are akin to Mid-town Manhattan in New York City or Beverly Hills and Orange County in California.

So, 강남 스타일 literally means “the style from the Gangnam area.” With high-dollar real estate, upscale and luxury shopping centers and shops, lavish hotels, and a high concentration of affluent citizens, this area is regarded as “trendy” and “hip,” and people who hang out there a lot or live there may exude a certain “swag”, better known as “Gangnam Style.”

놈 [nom] = a guy, dude (informal and can be offensive)

위에 [wi-e] = above
날다 [nal-da] = to fly
