The countries that viewed the music video the most turned out to be America, Thailand and Korea, according to the statistics for September 16.

A source close to Psy said, "Psy is currently gathering the spotlight to himself through main TV program and radio show appearances. Because he appeared himself in The Ellen Show, The Today Show and Saturday Night Live, the interest that had been focused on the music video for Gangnam Style has been channeled to Psy himself, and this had led to high showings on overseas music charts."

On September 15, Psy became the first Korean singer to top the iTunes charts in 18 countries at once with a Korean single. Even up to now he still stands tall at the top above such pop stars as Taylor Swift and Maroon 5.

Psy plans to perform at the iHeartRadio music festival to be held in Las Vegas on September 21. There, the singer will perform among the likes of Rihanna and Usher.
