Psy’s music video “Gentleman,” which has drawn nearly 600 million hits on YouTube so far, topped the list of 2013’s top ten most watched K-pop music videos on Youtube on December 10.
After its release in April, the music video attracted the attention of the public by snagging a Guinness world record for the most viewed video online in 24 hours, and also scoring 100 million views in the shortest period of time in Youtube’s history.
In the meantime, PSY’s official channel ranked first in the most popular K-Pop channel category on YouTube because it has the highest number of subscribers. The next spot was taken by SMTOWN’s channel, followed by the BIGBANG channel. The channel of Jung Sung-ha, a guitarist who has risen to fame on YouTube,was in the fourth spot, which showed that his influence has become similar to that of top Korean musicians.
