Appearance of the Dancers
The routine is a duet between a man and a dancer who changes gender and appearance.
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 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.
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.
The man then transforms into yet another woman; she has pink hair and wears a pair of black sunglasses, a black and teal dress, purple knee high socks with garters, and blue boots with pink bows.
The most prominent element of the background is a carousel of horses, reminiscent of the music video. The routine first takes place in 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.
There are 3 Gold Moves in this routine:
Gold Moves 1 and 2: Point to the right upwards. This is done while P1 opens their legs and puts their left arm on their left leg and P2 is under P1's legs.
Gold Move 3: Put your hand on your chin and lean to the left.

- Gangnam Style is the first Korean-language song in the main series.
- Many songs in the Japanese series are originally released in Korean but are featured in the series under their Japanese versions, so Gangnam Style is the first native Korean song to appear in the Japanese series as well.
- Gangnam Style is the first song by Psy in the series.
- Gangnam Style is the first Duet in which only one coach transforms.
- This is the first Duet where the coach who transforms gets a gender change. It is followed by Sugar.
- Gangnam Style 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, the moves (including Gold Moves 1 and 2) based off the elevator scene from the video, and the final Gold Move.
- There are two unused Gold Moves: the first one depicts the first move of each chorus, and the second one is a Wave Gold Move from right to left, where players have to put their hands behind their head.
- On the Wii version of Just Dance 4, the pictogram for Gold Move 3 lacks its golden glow.
- P2 (C1) makes a cameo in Just Dance’s background.
- P2 (C2) has two different avatars in Just Dance 2014, one in the base game and one as a DLC. The DLC version of the avatar has shorter and brighter hair, her glasses are slightly larger, and her hat is more curved.
- The original one is used in Just Dance 2015 and earlier versions of Just Dance Now, while the latter is used in Just Dance Unlimited and newer versions of Just Dance Now.
- The Just Dance Now version of the routine had a different color palette, which can be seen in a promotional gameplay.
- If it had been kept in the final game, Gangnam Style would have been the first post-Just Dance 3 routine to receive major graphic changes.
- Gangnam Style was free on Just Dance Now on May 24, 2016 for the whole day in commemoration of "Brothers Day".
- On a promotional image for Just Dance Now that shows part of the track list, the song title and the artist’s name are accidentally swapped, resulting in "PSY - GANGNAM STYLE" to appear instead of the opposite.
- In Till I Find You (Mashup), the first, third and fourth time Gangnam Style appears, P2 is C1 rather than C3, although C1 in the original routine was never seen performing these moves.
- This suggests that P2 was not supposed to switch to other coaches in the beginning.
- A gameplay of Gangnam Style in Just Dance 2015 uploaded by Mexican YouTuber Humberto Contreras was ranked 10th for one of the most popular gaming videos ever, according to WatchMojo.
- A sticker of the song's horses can be unlocked in Just Dance 2020 by dancing to Bassa Sababa three times.
- P1 appears in the trailer for Season 2: Versus, even though the routine is not included in the season.
