Pieta for the Oscar and PSY in the Itunes Top 10

Gangnam Style
PSY's worldwide success just surpassed all the previous records set by Korean singers. Gangnam Style just ranked 64th on the latest US Billboard chart. The previous best rank for a Korean singer was set by the Wonder Girls (ranked 76th).
PSY's song is now in the US iTunes Top 10! It will certainly be difficult for other Korean artists to beat these new records. Maybe PSY's next song?

Proof of this incredible success: PSY recently made a TV appearance on "The Ellen Show" with Ellen Degeneres and Britney Spears and he was invited MTV's VMA. Check out the videos:


And did you know that PSY made Korea's cheer song for the 2012 London Olympics?

Will Pieta be the 1st Korean movie nominated by the Academy Awards?

Pieta (피에타) was chosen by the Korea film council to represent Korea in the foreign film section for the next Academy Awards.

The movie directed by Kim Ki-duk (김기덕) has already won the Best film award at the Venice film festival.
It would be the 1st Korean movie to reach the Oscar nominations. Results will come in January 2013.
