S. Korea's Gangnam Style tops 200m YouTube views
SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean pop sensation Park Jae-Sang posted another landmark on Tuesday, when the video of his global-hit Gangnam Style notched 200 million views on YouTube, days after topping the United States iTunes chart.
"Got 200 million views!!! Thx everybody!!!" Park, better known by his stage name Psy, wrote on his Twitter account @psy_oppa.
The video, featuring Psy performing his signature "horse riding dance", went viral shortly after being posted on the video-sharing site in mid-July, turning the chubby, 34-year-old singer into an international star.
Recent appearances at the MTV awards in Los Angeles and on numerous prime-time US talk shows have boosted his profile even higher, pushing Gangnam Style to the top of the US iTunes Chart on Saturday.
