    So I have never participated in streaming.

    I got into BTS (and kpop in general) just some months ago. I didnt like V's Singularity much so after two-three listens (just to see if it will grow on me), I didnt bother. When Fake Love came in, I had some personal issues to deal with so I didnt have the time.

    And honestly, I dont have the energy to endlessly stream songs like others. I also have sensitive ears like I can listen to music only for one-two hours, so I do that when commuting from home to work and back again.

    Whenever I see the views growing on YT, I am seriously half-amazed with the dedication and half-amused that people are able to stream with no regards to their time.

    So to people who stream, how do you have the motivation to keep listening to the same song? Dont your ears hurt? Dont you get bored? Dont your fingers hurt when deleting cookies and typing again? (I saw the process of streaming. It requires a lot of patience to keep repeating the steps.)

    And to people who do not stream, are you just as lazy as I am? Or do you not care? xD

    I don't really stream cuz I'm lazy
    Also since artists barely make any money off streaming. I would just buy a bunch of physicals when I have the money

    i usually don't stream either lol (i usually don't care about views but i always wanna support my girls when i can)
    most i streamed was for power up, ~ 1 hour while i was super hyped up
    i just used different browsers & different devices, clear history after every view

    you can close your computer's voice. but not youtube's. so you can grow views without ear hurts. Fighting!

    I don't stream because I have other stuff to do.
    I buy their all of their albums and that should be enough.

    Well, I guess my favorite groups are my motivation. I want them to be successful and I want them to feel proud <3

    *hi5 for being as lazy as me*

    I mean compared to physical sales, streaming does seem pretty measly.

    I only ever stream if the group is unpopular and need more views to be more visible (more views makes algorithms show the videos to more people so it can help smaller groups get exposure) AND the song is actually good to a point that they can get more fans with me inflating the numbers. Even so, I just play the video in the background while working, and once I get bored of the song, I plug earphones in and don't put them in my ears lol

    The only thing I’ve ever intentionally streamed is blackpink house because there was actually a reward after a certain amount of views. (which we still haven’t gotten yet after 6 months, thanks YG)

    I just naturally watch other stuff or just stream it maybe for the first day.

    I don't have time in my life to stream. If I did, I'd probably use it to play games or something.

    Most of my time is spent working full-time + various freelance projects/networking that goes into working in the creative field.

    I get why it's important, but personally I just listen to the music because I enjoy it. The accolades are whatever. Though it's nice to see the group you like do well.

    And Red Velvet appreciates your 1-hour efforts xD


    Just throwing out there: Power Up was really good. I contributed around 5 views, I think.

    Haha! Will try this....



    ...one day. xD


    Also, if I am using another tab while the YT video is playing on another, does it contribute to a view?

    I don't stream because I don't think views are that important, but I do appreciate the people who take the effort.

    I still support BTS by buying the album.

    I don’t stream. I’ll listen to the song as many times as I like but I’ll never stream. I see hardly any groups celebrating their yt views anyway.....

    I also just want to enjoy the music and the whole comeback with everything tbh. I don't want to make a whole job out of stanning BTS.

    You are still streaming it? Cool! I wish Seungri had promoted it. It was such a fun vid! I might have watched it like 10 times.

    i can`t believe people go dedicate their time to stream. i just don`t have the energy for that lol.

    its kinda sad grinding for views.

    *logs of akp and goes to play runescape (a grindy game where you level up your player by clicking over and over again).

    my logic lol

    its still different though beacuse its a game
