Japan internet news RBB Today revealed that Psy's "Gangnam Style" had ranked number 1 for most clicked video on YouTube Japan.

Last weekend I went to the All Night Nippon live in Yoyogi and the hosts, Hi-Hi, came out to Gangnam Style.

It took a moment to sink in, then to look around and see most of the people there going "Wtf." So I sang to it as loudly as I could.

I totally don't understand about Psy's charm.. Could someone explain it to me?

It's not charm per se....

However it's not really popular in charts

the hatred is mostly media fabricated.

most of it was stupid tho XD

Strange coz it wasn't popular physically or digitally. Physical I understand but why not digitally? I'm guessing the clicks came from curious people.

Also the "anti-hallyu" rumor thing is a load of BS. Its called decline in interest of trend, not anti-Hallyu.

It wasn't popular physically or digitally because it's still not been released in Japan!

that's cool
although I think that it's about curiosity for now
bu tit might be a good market for him and a nice trend in Japan.

That's a major achievement for a Korean singer.
Good work!

I just saw kame dancing to it the other day..... Maybe after months and months Japan is finally catching on? Haha

Possibly. Call me maybe became a hit only after it had fizzled out in the rest of the world.
