They could misinterpret it...
The Associated Press reports that PSY will change the title and lyrics of his follow-up to "Gangnam Style" so he doesn't offend Arabs.
The song will be called what can be written as Assarabia or Assaravia in English. It's slang by South Koreans to express thrills and isn't about any ethnicity or body part as the word suggests. There have been concerts that Arabs would misunderstand the title and find it derogatory. PSY said Monday on a South Korean social media website that he decided to change the title and lyrics.
He has promised more work in English after several Korean albums but hasn't said when. "Gangnam Style" currently has a record 1.44 billion views on Youtube since July.
