Psy to revise Gangnam Style follow-up over worry it may offend Arabs
SEOUL (AP) - PSY says he will change the title and lyrics of his potential "Gangnam Style" follow-up over worries it could offend Arabs.
The announced title for the song can be written as "Assarabia" or "Assaravia" in English. It's slang used by South Koreans to express thrills.
It suggests no ethnicity or body part, but worries have risen that Arabs might misinterpret the title and find it derogatory.
PSY said on Monday on a South Korean social media website that he has decided to change the title. Some lyrics also will change.
