There has been a Summer Heatwave, Dokdo events and the Olympics, but maybe the biggest thing to happened this year (so far) to Korea is PSY‘s release of the hit song Gangnam Style.

The the Berklee College of Music and Boston University Korean Rapper PSY has a career spanning over 10 years, but not until this summer has he really made waves outside of Korea.

Gangnam Style / 강남스타일 has now had over 40 Million views on Youtube and an updated verison is expected soon.
