When it comes to K-Pop music videos, it’s always exciting to see your favorite artist or song reach big milestones in views. While in the past, it used to be uncommon for songs to reach even 100 million views, these days it happens quite often, though it’s still an impressive achievement! Here are the latest milestones for K-Pop MVs, by the 100 million mark.
12. “Kill This Love” by BLACKPINK
“Kill This Love” came out on April 4, 2019, and quickly became one of the most-watched K-Pop music videos within the first 24 hours. On September 2, 2020, it became BLACKPINK’s 2nd music video to reach an incredible 1 billion views! It also has 16.2 million likes.
11. “DDU-DU DDU-DU” by BLACKPINK

10. “How You Like That” by BLACKPINK
