Psy has been named singer of the year in a poll by Gallup Korea. In the survey of 4,157 people aged between 13 and 59 in all parts of the country except for Jeju Island, the rapper was named this year's most popular singer by 24.4 percent of respondents, followed by Girls' Generation (19.8 percent) and boy band Big Bang (9.5 percent).

Next came IU (6.9 percent), Jang Yoon-jung (6.6 percent) and girl band Sistar (6.4 percent). T-ara took seventh place with 5.5 percent, followed by BEAST (5.3 percent), Tae Jin-ah (5.2 percent) and Busker Busker (4.1 percent).

By age group, Big Bang was the most popular with teenage fans and Girls' Generation with 20-somethings. Those in their 30s to 50s picked the singer of "Gangnam Style" as their favorite, while he ranked as teenagers' No. 3 choice and was 20-somethings' No. 2 pick.

Busker Busker and Ailee were named male and female novice of the year, respectively.
