PSY's international sensation "Gangnam Style" is the best selling single in 31 different countries according to iTunes sales.

    I hope we get more experiences like this in the US. I would like to see more Asians get recognition like this. I think artists like Utada, Akanishi Jin, BoA, JYJ, and G.E.M. have a good chance of being popular in the US if they work at it.

    Wow! this is so amazing! It's surprises me to see a top selling song on Itunes and it's asian ON THE US CHARTS! that's pretty amazing! most of my friends are too 'scared' to even listen to the japanese/k-pop i have, instead it's "rap and pop" but i REALLY REALLY hope that gangham style is the gateway to a variety of popular newly released j-pop/k-pop/c-pop on the US Itunes charts, because the US should be a little more cultural, thank you gangham style <3

    EPIC. And it's good that PSY won't rerecord it cause I think it'll lose the spice. xD
