SEOUL, June 9 (Korea Bizwire) – K-pop sensation BTS’ music video for “DNA” exceeded 400 million views on YouTube on Saturday, marking the first time that a South Korean music group has set such a record.
The video for the lead song on the group’s mini album “LOVE YOURSELF: Her” surpassed the milestone on the global video-hosting site in the day, according to Big Hit Entertainment.
The group achieved the feat within nine months of releasing the video, which is the shortest time to set such a record by a South Korean group, the agency said, adding that BTS became the first K-pop group to achieve the milestone.
BTS made history last week as its “Love Yourself: Tear” album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, making the group the first K-pop act to top the chart.
