SEOUL, South Korea (CBS) -- Thousands of South Koreans danced to the country's breakout pop star Psy's 'Gangnam Style' hit on a street in Seoul on Saturday (October 6) to promote a local street dance festival.
Psy, whose real name is Park Jai-sang, gained hundreds of online imitators with his unusual dance move, where he pretends to ride an invisible horse.
The event was organized by the local Dongdaemun authorities. It was located in a neighborhood in the northern part of the city, to promote its street dance festival entitled "International Dance Festival' - a one-day event held on Saturday.
The festival organizer said had hoped to attract 30,000 people to the event, but fell short of that number saying about 10,000 people turned up.
K-pop viral phenomenon Psy, who has racked up some 360 million YouTube views, sold 294,000 digital copies in the U.S. last week of his "Gangnam Style" hit.
Billboard said Psy remains in contention for the Hot 100's No. 1 rank next week.
