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).
