Gangnam Style wins Korean 'Grammy'

Rapper Psy's Gangnam Style video is a global viral hit

Rapper PSY's worldwide smash hit Gangnam Style has been crowned song of the year by South Korea's music industry association.

The viral sensation that became an international chart-topper last year won the Digital Daesang honour at the 2013 Golden Disk Awards, considered South Korea's version of the Grammys.

PSY did not attend the awards ceremony at Malaysia's Sepang International Circuit.

Gangnam Style clinched the award that is determined largely by downloads and ringtone sales. The song edged out contenders by acts including Big Bang, G-Dragon and T-ara.

The two-day awards ceremony was held outside South Korea for a second year after 2012's appearance in Japan.

Boy band Super Junior captured top album honours on Tuesday for its sixth studio release, Sexy, Free & Single.
