Black Pink's 'DDU-DU DDU-DU' breaks record for fastest K-pop MV to reach 500 million views

Black Pink
In just over five months, the music video for Black Pink's "DDU-DU DDU-DU" has surpassed 500 million YouTube views.


The music video hit the 500 million view mark on November 25 at 4 PM KST - 162 days after the song's release on June 15. The milestone was later announced through a congratulatory posting in YG Entertainment's official blog.

The achievement has officially broken the record for fastest K-Pop group music video to reach 500 million views, taking off roughly seven months from the previous record, which was held by BTS's "DNA."

Congratulations to Black Pink!

There's no way to tell. If there are bots for either, there are bots for the other. It's as level a playing field as they can make it, I think. The bigger test is sales (combined physical and streaming). Bots aren't going to make purchases.

I'd like to thank Dua Lipa unnie, the bots, the 50 k-blinks, SEA, YG since he apparently has control over YouTube, and every jobless blink (including myself) !

"...taking off roughly seven months from the previous record..."


I'm still stunned by how much K-pop groups break previous records. Every time they break a record it seems like they shave off 40-50 % of the previous one. That pace can't last for long. At some point the records have to become so difficult to beat that groups will fight to shave off just a few minutes of or add a few dozen views to the previous record.

why i feel these views are fake?

you cant have 5monts in a row, 2M views every day.. It's impossible with:

no good physical sales

no charting in korea

no charting in the US

couldn't fill up a merely 15k venues.

fake views...

Youtube view is also counted for RIAA certification. This song got so many views. Why has not it being certified as gold yet in RIAA?

To be honest, it's not that surprising Blackpink keep breaking BTS records with youtube views. Blinks have basically no content (like what, five videos?) so all their efforts are concentrated on only a few MV's. But congrats anyway.

Not to throw shade or anything but that title is incorrect since PSY's Gangnam Style and Gentleman did it in fewer than 162 days

I don't see why the BTS fandom would mind. Many Army's are Blinks themselves.

To be honest, I don't think Army's really care. Blackpink have only a few MV's so it makes sense their videos keep breaking records with views —their efforts are much more concentrated whereas BTS have a massive amount of content continuously receiving views. Anyway, charts are much more telling of a group's success.
