On December 10, YouTube released a
list entitled ‘K-Pop Music Video Top
10,’ which was comprised of the ten
most viewed K-Pop MVs on YouTube
from December 2012 to November
2013.

Psy’s “Gentleman ” ranked in first
place with approximately 600 million
views since its release in April! It
had also been named the number one
viral video of 2013 by TIME magazine.

Girls’ Generation’s “I Got A Boy ”
came in second, which is not
surprising considering it won ‘Video
of the Year’ at the ‘YouTube Music
Awards’ in November.

However, that is not all. Girls’
Generation made the list two more
times with ” Dancing Queen ” and
“Galaxy Supernova” in fifth and sixth
place respectively, although the latter
was a Japanese release.

EXO made the list twice, coming in
third with “Growl” and fourth with
“Wolf.” F(x) ‘s ” Rum Pum Pum Pum”
came in seventh place, Super Junior-
M’s ” Break Down ” in eighth, 2NE1 ‘s
“Falling In Love ” in ninth, and
4minute ‘s ” What’s Your Name? ” in
tenth.
