South Korean pop sensation and the singer of "Gangnam Style" may make his China debut during the New Year's countdown gala show on Hunan Satellite TV, local media reported.

The TV station in Changsha, capital of Hunan Province reportedly spent nearly a month to persuade Psy to perform at their New Year gala show amid competition from other Chinese TV stations that expressed the same interest, Xiaoxiang Morning Herald reported.

The show will be held on the eve of New Year's Day on Hunan STV, one of the most watched TV channels in China.

The paper said Psy's agent had confirmed his participation and details of his performance are still in negotiation.

Psy's "Gangnam Style" has taken the world by storm with more than 780 million views on YouTube since it was released in July. His music video mocks the consumerism of a rich Seoul suburb and his horse-riding dance has been imitated by many people, including UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
