To little surprise, the YouTube sensation Psy dominated the K-pop singles rankings in the U.S. this year, taking three of the top 10 spots on Billboard’s list of 2013’s Biggest-Selling K-pop Songs in America.

Psy’s mega international hit singles “Gangnam Style” and “Gentleman” were listed at the No. 1 and 2 spots, respectively, as 2013’s biggest-selling K-pop singles in the U.S. The Korean rapper’s past-time single “Right Now,” which was released in 2010, also came in at No. 8, passing the locally popular EXO’s “Wolf” (No. 9) and 2NE1’s “Falling in Love” (No. 10).

Big Bang’s 2012 single “Fantastic Baby” came in third, followed by Girls’ Generation’s “I Got a Boy”; EXO’s “Growl”; 2NE1’s “I Am the Best” and “The Baddest Female” by CL.
