Psy Claims No. 1 K-Pop Video on YouTube for 2nd Year

Psy's single "Gentleman" has become the most-viewed K-pop video on YouTube, just one year after his mega-hit "Gangnam Style" went viral and stole the same title in 2012.

YouTube revealed its list of the top 10 K-pop music videos of 2013 on Tuesday based on the number of hits they received from December 2012 until the end of last month.

"Gentleman" took the No. 1 spot with 600 million hits. It also recorded the highest number of clicks in a single day upon its release in early May, with the number rising to a whopping 1 billion within just four days.

Girls' Generation had three videos on the top 10 list, with "I Got a Boy" placing second, "Dancing Queen" fifth and "Galaxy Supernova" sixth.
