The music video for SHINee member Jonghyun’s “Crazy” was crowned the most-watched K-pop music video on YouTube for January 2015, according to Billboard.

The U.S. music site based its list of most-watched K-pop videos around the globe using data compiled by YouTube.

The music video for “Crazy,” off Jonghyung’s first solo album, “BASE,” topped the list, followed by Keith Ape’s “It G Ma,” and rookie R&B artist G.Soul’s “You.”

The sexiness of the video -- in which Jonghyun is shirtless and chained to a giant, robotic spider -- contributed to its popularity, Billboard reported.

The only girls on the list were 4Minute, who captured the No. 4 slot with their music video for “Cold Rain.”

Jonghyun’s track “Deja-Boo” came in sixth on the list.

Meanwhile, INFINITE H’s “Pretty” ranked No. 5, with Mad Clown’s “Fire” at No. 7 and Jung Yong-hwa’s “One Fine Day” at No. 8.

“Crazy,” released in January, had garnered 2,544,718 views as of 4:50 p.m. on Thursday.
