SEOUL, Jan. 10 (Korea Bizwire) — BTS became the first South Korean boy band to hit 600 million views on YouTube with the music video for their song “DNA”.
Big Hit Entertainment said that the music video reached 600 million views at 7:18 p.m. on Wednesday.
The music video uses various transitional effects as if going through virtual space to visually express the idea that “the two of us were destined to meet since the beginning, and our DNA was one,” as written in the lyrics.
Since its release in September 2017, “DNA” made it to Billboard’s Hot 100 on four consecutive occasions.
The song earned a Gold Certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in February of last year.
BTS’s “Fake Love”, “Mic Drop”, and two other songs garnered 400 million views, while “Save Me”, “Idol”, and Blood, Sweat & Tears reached 300 million views.
