Psy to be No. 1 on YouTube very soon
On Nov. 22, Ilgan Sports reported that “Gangnam Style” was galloping toward YouTube’s all-time most-viewed video.
As of 9 a.m. on the day, Psy’s hit video had a record of 782,700,000 views, just 20 million clicks less than Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”
As Psy’s global hit gets about 10 million clicks a day, it seems likely that it will usurp Bieber’s video in a day or two.
The paper predicted that by the weekend, the song will be ahead of “Baby.”
On Nov. 19 at the Daejoong Arts Awards, Psy claimed the Okgwan Order of Cultural Merit, one of Korea’s highest cultural honors, for doing his bit to promote the nation with “Gangnam Style.”
