As we listen to Psy's music are we laughing at him or with him? This book responds to this question from historical and theological perspectives and tackles the pressing issues concerning racial stereotypes, imposed masculinity, and imitating another in order to ridicule him/her.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Theological Reflections on `Gangnam Style''s subtitle is probably a better description of Cheah and Kim's task: an attempt to present the racial, sexual, and cultural critique of the field broadly conceived as `Asian American theology' directed at a world under American neocolonial imperialist hegemony." (Justin K. H. Tse, Reading Religion, readingreligion.org, March, 2017)

"The authors' insight on the difference between 'laughing at Psy' and 'laughing with Psy' in the concluding chapter helps Asian Americans realize that now is a poignant time to think over sexual stereotypes of Asian Americans in the racialized U.S. society. This book is a good resource book for theologians and teachers of culture who are at the racial margins and want to perform their own innovative work in racial relations, conflict, and prejudice in the pop-cultural realm." - Seungyoun Jeong, Asian American Theological Forum
