PSY further proves how he can bring in YouTube viewers like no other -- especially in America -- with the King of viral videos racking up big numbers just hours after releasing his latest visuals.

According to YouTube, PSY's "Daddy" video featuring CL was the top-viewed K-pop video in the U.S. last month as the video was released within hours before November ended in the territory. Those initial numbers though weren't enough for him to top global list where EXID's "Hot Pink" lands at No. 1 and "Daddy" is in the runner-up position.

EXID's much-anticipated vid proved to be a must-watch around the world as the group seems to solidify their place as a must-watch act on YouTube. "Hot Pink" tops the international ranking and charts at No. 4 on the American list, and notably is the only entry from a female act on the month's Top 10 most-viewed K-pop video lists minus Brown Eyed Girls slipping in at No. 10 on the global list. "Hot Pink" follows "Up & Down" and "Ah Yeah," both with more than 30 million views on YouTube.

A slew of boy bands make their way onto the November list too, led by a pair of videos from rookie act iKON, "Apology" and "Anthem," both ranking in the Top 5 on both the U.S. and global list. "Chained Up" by VIXX, who have visited the U.S. at least once every year since their 2012 debut, chart high on the American list at No. 3, but a little further down the international list at No. 7. GOT7, B.A.P and BTS -- acts who all have No. 1s on Billboard's World Albums chart -- also see their latest bow on the list, mostly notably BTS makes the ranking despite being released so late into November ("Run" hit YouTube on Nov. 29).
