When it comes to viral Korean pop songs, the Gangnam Style video featuring South Korean rap star Psy has risen to become the most watched YouTube video of all time. However, even though the video might look like it’s just a bunch of people doing a deranged dance, Cody Turner will tell you there was actually a lot of hard work that went into making it.

Cody has always had a keen eye for emerging viral videos. During his summer 2012 internship at Trend Hunter, he was always discovering and writing about the latest music video sensations before they hit the mainstream. Cody is also a professional photographer and, in addition to documenting picture-perfect weddings in the Cayman Islands, in September 2012, he had his work showcased at an art exhibition titled ‘Flinch.’ This involved him photographing the facial expressions of models just before they knowingly get hit in the face with various objects and liquids.
