Psy's income from YouTube advertising revenue linked to 'Gangnam Style' is believed to be around £540,670 ($870,000), and the singer and his management company are also entitled to a cut of income generated by parodies of the song.

However, the largest slice of his income is estimated to come from commercial deals. This figure is estimated by a South Korean securities analyst to be £2.86 million ($4.6 million).
