Psy's 'Hangover' most watched K-pop video in first half: YouTube

South Korean rapper Psy's "Hangover" was the most viewed Korean pop video on Youtube in the first half of this year, the video-sharing website announced Wednesday.

According to the website's list of popular videos and channels in the first half of 2014, YouTube users worldwide chose to watch Psy and American rapper Snoop Dogg go out on a night of drunken debauchery more than any other music video in the K-pop genre.

As of 2 p.m., the video had racked up more than 94.8 million views since its release on June 9.

The runner-up to Psy's "Hangover" was "Mr. Mr." by Girls' Generation, followed by EXO's "Overdose" and 2NE1's "Come Back Home."

The remainder of the list was predominantly music videos of pop idols, including High4, IU, TVXQ and AOA.

A separate chart for South Korea's user-generated content heavily featured videos of Waveya, an all-women South Korean dance group, whose choreographic video of Britney Spear's "Work Bitch" topped the list. (Yonhap)
