Korean rapper PSY's hit song, "Gangnam Style", has ranked on iTunes top ten songs chart.
PSY's agency, YG Entertainment, said Thursday that the fact that a Korean song made it to the iTunes top ten list, which has a nearly 80 percent share of the U.S. online music market, is highly significant. The agency added PSY had achieved a feat that would be hard to top.
Meanwhile, U.S'.s Time magazine included the term 'Gangnam style', in its NewsFeed's weekly highlight of its vocabulary.
The magazine described the term as "a manner associated with lavish lifestyles in Seoul's Gangnam district".
The report added that "this definition is adapted from an Urban Dictionary entry–an increasingly popular entry since South Korean rapper PSY released a cheeky music video celebrating Gangnam style".
