A set of postage stamps featuring Psy, the singer of the global hit “Gangnam Style,” will be released next week, the performer’s local management agency said Thursday.

The stamps will hit shelves Monday to “commemorate the global success of ‘Gangnam Style,’” YG Entertainment said.

The video for the song became the most-viewed YouTube clip in December, topping 1 billion hits, and broke the 1.3 billion mark early this week.

The stamp series includes six stamps on three artistic cards, both featuring the performer doing his trademark horse-riding dance depicted in the pop art style, and a case made of tempered glass.

On the backside of the cards is Psy’s printed signature and a QR (Quick Response) code that allows his fans to watch the “Gangnam Style” video with a quick scan of their smartphone devices, the agency said.

The commemorative stamps will be available at 22 post offices in Seoul and online, at and (Yonhap News)
