Psy's latest hit, "Gentleman," has set a Guinness world record, becoming the most-viewed video online in a 24-hour period.

His previous hit "Gangnam Style" has been viewed over 1.5 billion times, breaking YouTube records last year.

"Gangnam Style" also won the titles for "most-viewed video online," "most 'liked' YouTube video" and "first video to reach 1 billion views."

"Gentleman" needed only 38 million views to take the Guinness title. It drew 38.4 million hits on YouTube on April 14, the second day of its release, according to the Yonhap news agency.

The video has had more than 250 million views in total.

Psy, real name Park Jae-sang, who was discovered by Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, has also been honored with his own comic book.

The 26-page long comic includes images of Psy teaching his iconic dance moves to Ellen DeGeneres, Britney Spears, and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
