          Psy's “Gentleman” Craze Confirms His Global Value Like Beatles
2013년 04월 19일 (금) YeongChan Joo, Reporter webmaster@worldyannews.com
The ‘Gentleman’ music video, released at 9pm on the 13th set a new world record after reaching over 100 million views after only 4 days. It’s the fastest time an event reached over 100 million views in the history of the internet.
Most people would agree that the greatest singers in the global pop history are Elvis Presley of the ‘50s, Beatles of the ’60s, and Michael Jackson of the ‘80s and ’90s. When the global singer Psy captivated the world with hit song ‘Gangnam Style,’ lots of Americans downgraded him as an unsophisticated singer. Furthermore, there were criticisms at home and abroad, accusing the song as low quality music and ‘one-hit wonder‘. However, the worldwide popularity of his new music video ’Gentleman' fundamentally changed the evaluation.

The Korean Wave Research Institute (KWRI), which had predicted a billion views at YouTube for the first time in the world and stimulation of tourism in Gangnam, attributed the popularity of 'Gangnam Style’ to the competitiveness of global singer Psy.

He is an extraordinary singer who knows how to attract popularity with his hilarious gestures and hiding his claws. Although he acts modest by saying ‘Gangnam Style’ craze was based on pure luck, his success is largely based on his unique words and actions.In this day and age, performance on YouTube is more meaningful than Billboard. “Psy’s 'Gentleman’ is expected to outperform ‘Gangnam Style’ by becoming the number one on the U.S. Billboard chart and the UK singles chart, based on its performance on YouTube," says Han, Seung-Bum (former Han Koo-Hyun), the president of KWRI. “The question is how long it could maintain its number one status, rather than whether it could become the number one.”
