Description

Many fans of this song by PSY do not speak Korean, but they might be able to hear the "N" at the end of 오빤 [o-ppan]. 오빠 [o-ppa] refers to a female's older brother, but can also refer to any older male associated with a female. In "Gangnam Style" PSY refers to himself as 오빠 to a girl.

The "N" is a contraction of the word 는 [neun], which is used to mark the topic (distinct from the subject) of a sentence. So 오빤강남스타일 [Oppan Gangnam Style] roughly means "Oppa got Gangnam Style".
