Psy Ranks Number 1 on YouTube Japan


Even with the anti-hallyu sentiment in Japan, Psy still ranked number 1 on YouTube Japan.

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

Also, Big Bang was seen on the chart at number 3 and Girls' Generation at number 8.

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....
visionfactory1 21st-Dec-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
However it's not really popular in charts

Exactly my thought!

Psy's sales have been mostly digital, anyways. Part of why his physical sales in Japan haven't been high. Especially because those who get the most physical sales there now are groups that give something extra (tickets to concerts, handshake events, AKB48, etc).

I don't think he was extremely popular there, but I think the hatred is mostly media fabricated.

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
kamelover101 22nd-Dec-2012 07:54 am (UTC)
Possibly. Call me maybe became a hit only after it had fizzled out in the rest of the world.
