Big Bang proves YouTube statement false

8 Mar

Not only has Big Bang had an explosive music show comeback, they’ve also been setting YouTube ablaze, as well.

Since releasing the music video for their single “Tonight”, the 5-member group has racked up over 2 million views for that video alone in just over a week. The video not only ranked highly in Japan and Korea in terms of views (2nd), but also made it into the top 10 in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and even France. In addition, the band’s official channel, BIGBANG, boasts over 6 million views itself.

Such records disprove the statement made by Japanese journalist Taro Kimura, which claimed that South Korea was attempting to increase views for K-pop videos by themselves, when it is clear that the views are international.

What do you think of the statement? Do you think K-pop’s views are more international than Korea-based?
