Yea but they're always gonna be the ones who frequently put their videos in the "People & Blogs" category, so that an incomplete view is still counted, to get there. Not how I would want to get the achievement personally.

I haven't found anything that confirmes your statement. The only thing I found is that the category affects how the video will be recommended. so please stop spreading this superficial knowledge.

how bout this...why do YOU think they keep taking their MVs in and out of "People & Blogs?"

what reasonable explanation can you come up with that does not equate with it being advantageous to view count? I'd like to know what you think..

But didn't YouTube themselves confirmed the category doesn't matter and changed nothing? I'm not even their fan, but this claim "different category" is dumb as hell.

I'm a blink, but should Youtube views really be an achievement? Instead of 620 million people watching, what happens is there are 62000 people watching 10000 times. I just feel sorry for those who make it a living to stream the videos.

I am not to offence anyone or create any type of fanwars but I just cannot take it anymore. We all know what happened with Blackpink's MV, isn't it? It was changed again and again from 'people and blogs' to 'music' and vice versa. So I am not going to give any congrats (no offence to Blackpink and Blinks again) because I don't feel it a genuine win.

I am an ARMY and now I will get replies that I have taken BTS's side. But I am not taking anyone's side.

It was said that if any video is under 'People and blogs' category, they get 1+ views even if the video is not watched completely so I hope u all understood what I want to say. Also if this is not true then ask to YG why they kept on changing the category.

Again.... NO OFFENCE TO BLACKPINK, YG AND BLINKS! NOT CREATING A FANWAR!

I am a k-pop fan, and yes I do listen to BP. But...their video(s) are in the "People & Blogs" category. So if their fans or other k-pop listeners click on that MV then it will count as a view, you don't even need to watch the whole video for it to count as a view; just click it. YG cheating out here. I don't count this as an achievement, technically.

I hate that people say that KPop Became what it is because of BTS. It’s not necessarily true. With the creation of multiple social media outlets they have been able to capture the attention of more fans because they utilized it better in the beginning. They were able to capture a huge fandom that are loyal to a fault. BTS doesn’t produce the best music out of Kpop, they have a cult following that stream their music continually to boost their views, that tweet continuously to keep them trending, or that go on other artists post and talk about BTS to keep their name a part of the conversation. Now that doesn’t take away from BTS talents because they are just as talented and hardworking as other artist. But BTS wins awards because their fandom votes like crazy. When these awards show start taking the fan votes away and base it purely on the content you will have winners like BTOB and iKON. It would be a more even playing field. And you can come at me with your comments, it’s ok. But the only thing that turns me away from BTS is Army.


And I was into Kpop way before BYS debuted.

Funny how you guys like to complain that other kpop fans bash your idols when they are first at something, but do the same thing when other group have some attention and praise. Well, think whatever you want, you surely seem to like taking things too far, just don't go and spread that crap talk that every woman needs to cheat at everything.

The difference between my idols and blackpink is that their records and accomplishments are actually real and show their hard work. Why do blackpink have less than 250k album sales (even after debuting 2 and a half years ago) but apparently have 624 MILLION youtube views? something doesn’t add up lmao.


blinks wanna call them a top tier group. i remember when top tier groups sold albums, not magazines

Congrats on their cheated record lol. I for one couldn’t care less about youtube views, but I find it funny that the only thing YG can brag about when it comes to their achievements is their youtube views. Literally nothing else. That’s why he cheated the system and got them those view$$$$. So many views but so little sales.... hmm...

lol thats the only thing yg can brag about, thats the only way he can grab the media's attention (not forgetting how he will say "bp did it before bts" or "this achievement that bts didn't achieve") since he love to involve and mention bts in everything. thats why he keep changing the category so he can be faster than anyone. other than that there is nothing to brag abt or compare them to....

so its the 4th most viewed kpop mv? behind PSY's Gangnam Style, Gentleman and then HyunA & PSY's Oppa Is Just My Style, will be interesting to see if they come out with another MV before it gets that 100m views cause they tend to slow to crawl while they stream the newer stuff.

love how people are saying they cheated views. don't you fools do the same thing with mass streaming? that is cheating too lmao. and before you come at me and say no it is not, yes it is. making a playlist of one video and deleting your cookies to count the views is cheating. no one gets that amount of views that fast without mass streaming and the cookie cheat delete to trick youtube. everyone can be labeled cheater now with youtube. to me its nothing anymore because of the mass streaming, so if you are a blackpink anti just stay away and keep your mouth shut.

an incomplete view counted is easier than just streaming their views will go up so quickly and they dont have to finish watching, streaming is not considered cheating because all fandoms do that so all of them have the chance to mass stream if BP want to stream then they can its funny people defend this im not agaisnt BP but doing that its unfair to other groups , yg should change and keep their songs "music " category instead of "People & Blogs" if they want people to not say they are cheating

Agreed. I've been a fan of K-Pop for a long time. In fact, I've been a fan since before BTS debuted, but I think that K-Pop as a whole is becoming a revolution. K-Pop is expanding and becoming even bigger overseas and all over the world. I'm not gonna say that I don't know people who only know BTS but call themselves a "K-Pop Fan" ,because i used to be like that with Big Bang, too. Now I see that K-Pop is a lot more bands than just Big Bang. I will admit that I made that mistake too, but if we hate on them, (i'm talking about the fans that think that K-Pop is only BTS) ((it also doesn't mean "hating on" just something i say)) they might not wanna get into K-Pop and might not wanna join anymore fandoms. For example, when I had just got into Big Bang, i called myself a "K-Pop fan" and made it look like I was but, i tried joining a new fandom and they figured I only knew Big Bang and they did and said a lot of stuff. That made me wanna get out of stanning K-Pop all together and ended up quitting for a while. That was until BTS debuted and made it into the scene. I started liking them immediately and got back into K-Pop. Now I am a hardcore stan of K-Pop and not scared to say it. However, if we scare these new fans off, they might never get into K-Pop again. Show them what K-Pop is without being rude. Maybe one day they'll be a big of fan as you. :/

Most non-Asians (and even non-Koreans) out here in the U.S. didn't even know about K-Pop until PSY's "Gangnam Style". The closest was Wonder Girls' "Nobody". There's a reason why "Gangnam Style" was the most viewed video on YouTube at one point. PSY didn't depend on his fandom telling other YouTubers to do a dance cover, reaction video, or song cover of his music either.
