"Gangnam Style" by PSY is featured as a DLC on Just Dance 4, Just Dance 2014 and Just Dance 2015, and on the main tracklist of Just Dance Wii U, Just Dance Now and, Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancers

The routine is a duet between a man and a dancer who changes sex and appearance.

P1

P1, a representation of PSY, has black hair and is wearing a red tiger-print tuxedo, a purple shirt, blue and turquoise oxfords, and dark sunglasses.

P2

C1

P2 starts off as a woman with short red hair. She is wearing a turquoise tied shirt, a dark blue police cap, black high-waist shorts, purple knee high socks, pink tiger-print heels, and dark sunglasses.

C2

She transforms into a man at the part of the famous elevator pose. He wears a purple fedora, dark sunglasses, a cyan shirt, a black vest with a pink tiger-print at the shoulders, purple pants, and cyan shoes.

C3

The man then transforms into yet another woman; the pink-haired woman resembles Lady Gaga and wears a pair of black sunglasses, a black and teal dress, purple knee high socks with garters, and blue boots with pink bows.

Background

The most prominent element of the background is a carousel of horses, reminiscent of the music video. The routine first takes place at a nighttime city and a dark reflective floor, with the city appearing to just be small lights. The light-up railing of the floor and horses rotate in opposite directions. When P2 becomes a man, the city becomes a black and pink tiger print akin to P1's outfit. When the chorus arrives, the city becomes yellow and lime green. Large circles are present in this backdrop, having a couple of silhouettes dancing along with the duet. During this instance, the horses are absent.

Gold Moves

There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Moves 1 and 2: Point to the right when you and your partner are in the elevator position in the music video.
Gold Move 3: Put your hand on your chin and lunge forward. This is the final move for the routine.

Trivia

  • Gangnam Style is the first song by PSY in the series; it is followed by Gentleman and DADDY.
    • It's also the first Korean song in the main series, with the second being Gentleman and the third being DADDY.
      • Many songs in the Japanese series are originally Korean but they're sung in Japanese, so this is the first native Korean song.
  • This is the first duet in which only one coach transforms. This happens again in Love Is All.
    • This is yet the only duet where the coach who transforms gets a gender change.
  • P2, the first switched dancer, has two different avatars, one in the base game and one as a DLC (in Just Dance 2014, the original being in Just Dance 2015). The DLC version of the avatar has shorter and brighter hair, her glasses are slightly larger, and her hat is more curved.
  • This song has the most avatars (five, including the remade version of the policewoman-based P2) for a single song in the entire series.
  • There are two unused Gold Moves. To get points with it, you have to shake your hands, in the beginning of the chorus.
    • It is used in almost every Beta picture.
    • Another one is a "Wave Gold Move", where you have to put your hands behind your head. It is done from right to left.
  • The Just Dance Now version had a totally different colour palette. If it was kept in the final game, it would be the first remake of a song which is already in HD.
  • This is the most played song in Just Dance Now, being played over 320 million times.
  • The routine uses much of the official choreography, most notably at the chorus, a move based off the elevator scene from the video, and the final gold move.
  • This song has so far been in every game since its release.
  • P2 (C1) makes a cameo in Just Dance’s background.
  • This the first song in the series to have a music video which has accumulated over 1 billion views on YouTube; it is followed by Roar, Dark Horse, Bailando, Uptown Funk, All About That Bass, Party Rock Anthem, Sorry, Lean On, Wake Me Up, Gentleman, Worth It, Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) and On the Floor.
  • C1's avatar on Just Dance 2015 uses the old Just Dance 2014 version, but the avatar on Just Dance 2016 uses the remade version.
  • This song was free on Just Dance Now on May 24, 2016 for the whole day due to "Brothers Day".
