I love kpop, but this whole youtube view thing is such a ridiculous achievement. Non-kpop artists' fans are not obsessively streaming their mvs for imaginary award show points. Those view counts represent actual music interest. So the comparison is just not there.

LOL you expect me to believe that 43 million people watched Taylor Swift's MV on the first day? She has a very loyal fanbase, many of them teenagers, whom I'm sure are streaming for her too.

Imaginary points? I'm getting tired of hearing this, that's just plain ignorance. Some music shows take into account Youtube views.
Streaming gets MVs to hit the Youtube trending page which will get non-fans to check it out. Only BTS, Twice and Blackpink can consistently hit #1 Trending and the effort shows.
Not to mention high views and breaking records creates headlines thus exposure. Why do you think this article and countless others exist?

EDIT: seems people don't really get the point and need to look at the bigger picture. K-pop got to where it is today because of the fandom culture on Youtube.

I'm well aware of how K music shows are calculated. And I'm as guilty of streaming to help a group as the next kpop fan.

I probably chose the wrong word with 'imaginary,' but these weekly award shows are clearly contrived to play on our obsessive fan loyalty and get us buying multiple albums and digital streaming passes etc. It's a pure exercise in corporatism, even more so than normal for the music industry. So you can never compare Kpop MV counts (or album counts etc) with other non-kpop mvs and their unique listeners/fans. Kpop is still a genre that is often more about fandoms than music, so trending doesn't always equal talent.

Kpop fans are bat shit crazy. But then again Steve Jobs said “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do!

thats a weird thing to say. you think i can change the rankings of the top 10 youtube views by myself? i'm thankful for your faith in me but i think you overstate my abilities. contrary to what you seem to believe, sehunicr0n is not a supernatural entity.

i never said those songs were there out nowhere. they were voted for by droves of people with terrible taste and ulterior motives. i know exactly where they came from, thats not the issue

i'm just saying i wish some good songs were there to represent kpop

i hate all the songs up there, so you can't expect me not to wish something better was there, but these are the songs a bunch of braindead snowflakes voted for, purchased and viewed a lot. its not a mystery

but to imply that i can correct the misguided actions of 10 million teenaged losers with multiple accounts and their parents' credit cards is just giving me too much credit

​the 'you' i used i is a general term for your fandom not only you... Plus let's get down to the music.. The songs are what?? Tell me or show me the lyrics or song you produces that made you confident that those songs are bad... I don't just get people's problem..if you don't like something then you abstain from it... Why bother criticizing others hard work... People like you should be seated down and talk sense into... I don't like some songs up there and i personally think ddu ddu should not be there but that's just my own opinion... Others love it nd i respect that... Just because your faves aren't there doesn't make other songs trash so i hope you correct that mentality of yours If u have ever streamed or bought exo album then that adjective you used for fans up their also pertain to you.. Is it your money? Is it your time or energy? Let others live how they want, you have no say in their lives.... Condeming people is just devilish... I hope you repent from that mindset
