YouTube, the video Web site of Google Inc., on Tuesday launched a channel that incorporates video clips posted by Asian musicians, including South Korean pop idols SHINee and Super Junior.

The "A-pop Channel" features a top 20 list of the most popular video clips that highlight pop idols in Korea, Japan and China, as well as a calendar that posts information for online fan meetings and events, according to the YouTube's Korea blog. 

Users can also view the top 20 list by country, K-pop, J-pop and C-pop as well as visit featured channels run by top talent agencies such as South Korea's SM Entertainment and Japan's Avex.

As part of a launch event, the A-pop channel will host a week-long event where Asian pop fans can meet online with featured musicians, according to the blog.

The channel launch comes after South Korean rapper-singer Psy rose to global stardom after his catchy "Gangnam Style" video went viral on YouTube.

In December, the Gangnam Style music video became the most-viewed YouTube clip, topping 1 billion hits. It recently broke the 1.3 billion mark. (Yonhap News)
