    Like EXO's The Eve, they never had a music video, but like all artists they usually promote an extra b-side track on the side, while their main song was Kokobop. What are some side-promoted songs that became popular?


    lowkey bitter that Redvelvet's Look didn't catch steam. tis a bop.

    Go Go and Mic Drop by BTS. Go Go is actually the best selling b-side from a boygroup in 2017 as well with over 400K downloads. Both songs also still charting on the Melon top 100 during non-zombie hours as well :excitedr:

    Kara was promoting Wanna, but Mister became more popular even if it was Bside

    Hero and Stuck by Monsta X, they had fancy dance practices and became 2 of Monsta X's most popular songs, but both were B Sides

    Winner's Don't Flirt was a b-side and sold over a million. It's the highest selling b-side since 2NE1's Crush b-sides, I think. For EXIT:E, Baby Baby was originally the main title track but Sentimental outsold it.

    most of BigBang's b-sides

    Most recently, I thought Winner's Air did pretty well along with Everyd4y - they were definitely getting a ton of requests to do it on music shows and I saw it performing pretty decently on the charts
