SEOUL, Dec. 18 (Yonhap) -- The music video of "Dynamite," K-pop superstar BTS' 2020 megahit song, has racked up 700 million views on YouTube, its agency said Friday.
The video surpassed the mark at around 9:41 p.m. Thursday, just four months after its release, according to Big Hit Entertainment.
BTS now has six music videos that have more than 700 million views on the global video-sharing website, including "DNA," "Boy with Luv," "Fake Love," "MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix)" and "Idol."
The disco-pop single "Dynamite" has been breaking records since it dropped, becoming the first song by a South Korean artist to top Billboard's main singles chart. It has stayed on the chart for 16 weeks.
The video attracted a record traffic of 3 million concurrent viewers upon its premiere on YouTube on Aug. 21, garnering over 100 million views in 24 hours globally.
Meanwhile, the K-pop act's latest album "BE" and its main track "Life Goes On" also made history by debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 charts last month. "Life Goes On" was the first No. 1 sung predominantly in Korean in the chart's 62-year history.
