It was only a matter of time before rapper Psy invaded UK shores. The South Korean's latest effort (which heads up his sixth studio album, no less) has already topped the charts in several countries across the globe, become the most-watched Korean pop video on YouTube ever with over 220 million views and, most recently, charged past the likes of Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber to top the US iTunes chart.

So has this finally kick-started the long awaited K-pop revolution? If so, it's come at a hefty price. Sure, it's brilliantly bonkers with a dance routine to match and the first Korean song to ever make a dent in the UK charts, but truth be told, you could slap an LMFAO tag on the cover and few would know the difference. Regardless, like the novelty Party Rock Anthems, Macarenas and Cotton Eye Joes before him, we defy anyone who isn't still dancing along (stupidly) in years to come.
