South Korean pop sensation Psy may soon have another Guiness World Record under his belt: the largest Gangnam Style dance, performed in October 2012 in Seoul by as many as 100,000 fans. 

According to Yahoo, Korea's Record Branch reported that “PSY’s horse riding mob dance feat with 100,000 fans have been acknowledged as a Guinness World Record, and is now recorded as the biggest mob dance.”

"The Guinness World Record has acknowledged the passion of the 100,000 fans who danced along with PSY to ‘Gangnam Style,' added the authorities, according to Yahoo.

"The 100,000 fans are also the holders of the record, so this record is particularly meaningful. We have confirmation of the record, and Guinness has asked us to submit videos, photos, confirmation book, and logo book for recording purposes. PSY will also be receiving a certificate as an official acknowledgement from Guinness.”

The record appears to be as yet uncomfirmed, as Korean authorities will have to submit video, images, and other documentation of the free October 14th concert to the Guiness World Record's headquarters, notes YG-Life. 

Psy already has won a solid place in the record books, with the most viewed YouTube video in history with "Gangnam Style," and the most viewed online video in the span of 24 hours for "Gentleman."
