He did it! He finally did it! After weeks and weeks of following PSY’s progress from viral hit to international superstardom, we can now say that Gangnam Style has made it to the Number 1 spot on the Official UK Top 40 Singles chart! It was announced today just before 7pm on BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart Show by DJ Reggie Yates. PSY even sent Reggie a special message thanking everyone in the UK and Radio 1 for supporting him and buying his single.

Now I think we should all watch it one more time to celebrate:

Are you excited that a K-pop song is actually in the number 1 spot on the UK charts? Do you think this will pave the way more success for other Korean acts in the UK? With Clubland launching it’s new K-pop show it definitely looks like a possibility! Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
