And there you have it folks, PSY’s “Gangnam Style” has reached some pretty high milestones in the world of K-pop.
First, after making its debut 45 days ago on July 15, the music video for the international hit is now at a whopping 67,000,000+ views on YouTube. Second, the music video is currently listed as the #1 video on YouTube’s Top 100 Chart. Third, the track is now #44 on the U.S. iTunes ‘Top 100 Songs Chart’.
A YG Entertainment (his label and also home to 2NE1) representative stated that “This achievement is all the more meaningful, as the lyrics to Psy’s “Gangnam Style” are completely in Korean.” PSY has achieved more than any Korean artist in history with this single alone.
While the world of “Gangnam Style” doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon, it may only explode even further if the K-pop idol does indeed end up working with Justin Bieber.
So one more time…say it with me… “oppan…GANGNAM STYLE!”
