When it comes to k-pop, Youtube is the first place fans go for music videos. Groups like Girls’ Generation popularized the music genre on the site years ago, and SM Entertainment has followed the girl group up with EXO in recent years. So, it is no surprise to learn that one of the group’s recent videos just reach a big milestone.
Welcome back to the 100 million views club, EXO. It looks like “Ko Ko Bop” is the group’s latest video to rack up those kind of record-breaking views.
Earlier today, “Ko Ko Bop” crossed over the 100 million views threshold. The band’s fanbase, which is called EXO-L, was able to break their previous record in reaching this view count. “Ko Ko Bop” was able to rack up those views a little more than four months after its release. Previously, the record for EXO was 7 months with their music video for “Monster.”
Of course, “Ko Ko Bop” isn’t even the second music video for EXO to reach 100 million views. The band has reached that milestone for “Call Me Baby”, “Overdose”, “Growl”, and “Wolf.”
Recently, EXO added to its extensive music video library with a brand-new entry. With the group preparing to release its first full-length Japanese album, EXO debuted a short MV for their track "Electric Kiss" which you can find here.
