This week's episode centers around "Gentleman," the follow up single to Psy's "Gangnam Style" (which was in an episode last year).
Madison, 17, starts things out by rolling her eyes and saying, "Oh gosh. This guy again?"
The coeds then watch the music video in its entirety and make comments on everything from the lyrics to the dance moves to the sexually charged themes involved.
"I'm curious why people find it so interesting if they don't understand a single word he says," remarks Ethan, age 15.
Mimicking the hip swaying choreography, Lia, 16 insists, "This isn't very fun." A while later, when Psy, flocked by dancers, starts doing a 'skipping Thriller' dance move, she changes her mind and exclaims, "Oh yeah! Finally something fun!"
Rachel, 17, appears to be most alarmed by the sexual innuendos in "Gentleman," often with with her jaw dropped and a look of sheer disbelief. "Oh this one's a little sexual," she noted.
After the video is finished, the Fine Brothers then ask the teenagers a series of questions about what they have just seen. The responses are sometimes very poignant, and usually pretty hilarious. One 15-year-old, Eric, made a particularly memorable comment on the pop music industry saying, "That's how pop music works in America. Everything is the exact same and people latch on to that, and they don't like change so they just watch the same type of thing over and over."
In the end the teenagers make their predictions about whether or not "Gentleman" will be as popular as Psy's first hit. Mentioning "Gangnam Style," Lia determines, "It's like the second time around. Nothing is as cool the second time around."
The Fine Brothers also do Kids, Elders, and YouTubers React To programs on their YouTube channel and have previously made several episodes involving Korean stars. You can check them out below:
