MANILA, Philippines – South Korean rapper Psy will hold a concert in Manila before Christmas, a report said.

Citing "sources in direct contact with the show's promoter," news website Inquirer.net said Psy will perform at the SM Mall of Asia open grounds in Pasay City on December 21, Friday.

The report said Psy's Manila concert was previously scheduled on November 29, but did not push through "due to conflicts in the artist's schedule."

Psy rose to fame after the music video for his dance track "Gangnam Style" went viral online. It is now the most viewed video on YouTube, with over 877 million hits as of writing.

The video, which was uploaded on YouTube last July, also spawned countless parodies in several countries, including the Philippines.
