    Psy is a world renown singer already. At an instant, people think of South Korea when they see or hear PSY in the media. France's newspaper Le Figaro did a special report on Korean entertainment sweeping the world. Spanning two full pages, the newspaper introduced KPOP, K-drama, dance and other entertainment mediums that penetrated the international community. PSY's Gangnam Style music video recently hit a 1 billion views, and now PSY is considered to be a Korean Entertainment icon himself.

    In Berlin they made the "record" of the most people dancing the Gangnam Style at New Years´s Eve.
    Psy, however, said he won´t perform this again as it is too successful. He don´t want to be identified by only this song.

    Psy will always be a one hit wonder and then fade into obscurity; much like the Macarena craze a few years ago. :cool:

    I saw another video on you tube with Psy in it. The video was funny the way it was edited.

    I think, the main reason of popularity of Korean Entertainment is expert artists. Their performance is always good and people like it. Bollywood Movies
