Earlier this year PSY became the world’s most famous South Korean following the release his K-pop single, Gangnam Style.

The song was released in South Korea back in July and went viral the following month. As well as topping charts across the world, it has also gone on to break several social media records.  It quickly became the most ‘liked’ YouTube video of all time (now 5 million) when it overtook LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem (1.6 million).

It is also one of the most viral videos of 2012 with 29 million shares. More significantly perhaps, this weekend YouTube announced that it is now the most viewed YouTube video of all time.

At present, it has been viewed 825 million times, moving it well clear of Justin Bieber’s Baby (805 million views).
