‘Ddu-du Ddu-du’ tops YouTube list


The most popular K-pop music video this year was girl group Blackpink’s “Ddu-du Ddu-du,” announced YouTube on Wednesday.

YouTube released the list of the 10 most watched K-pop music videos of 2018 on Wednesday. The list was made up for views made between Nov. 24, 2017 and Nov. 22 of this year.

Blackpink’s June release “Ddu-du Ddu-du,” was followed by boy band BTS’s videos “Fake Love,” “MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix)” and “IDOL.”

“Ninety-four percent of the views for ‘Ddu-du Ddu-du,’ came from [outside of Korea],” said the company. “Blackpink proved their power once again, by taking the first place again, one year after taking first place last year with ‘As If It’s Your Last.’”

Girl group Twice also had three songs on the top 10 list, with “Heart Shaker” and “What is Love?” at the sixth and seventh place and “Dance the Night Away” at 10th. In fifth place was girl group Momoland’s “Bboom Bboom,” and eighth place went to boy band iKON’s “Love Scenario.” Girl group Red Velvet’s “Bad boy” placed ninth on the list.
