Even as the South Korean economy struggled through 2012, there was one bright spot K-Pop sensation Psy's viral music video "Gangnam Style" that helped bring a record number of tourists to the country boosting tourism revenues to a new high.

Go to Jeju, Everland, any hot springs or ski resort and you will come across many Chinese tourists.

They will undoubtedly be disappointed. Nothing to see in Gangnam. It is emphatically not Beverley Hills or Manhattan. Money is better spent travelling elsewhere.
