you can NOT use youtube views as a measure for being popular worldwide! kpop fandoms are known to mass stream music videos to try and break youtube records. So these views don't show anything.

BTS are known worldwide because they are doing well on charts worldwide. They are selling so good that they are obviously one of the biggest artists in the world. Blackpink are big in east Asia. That's it. That doesn't make them one of the best in the world at all. No matter what youtube records they have.

BTS are recognised as one of the biggest artists in the world, deservedly so. They’re selling out stadiums around the world and selling millions of albums. ARMY almost shutdown Piccadilly Circus just to see their Hyundai ad. There’s no denying their success and I’m so happy for them!

As for Blackpink I think they have the potential to be huge globally, I just don’t think they’re quite there yet.
