Boy Band BTS Makes History Again With 'DNA' Getting 550 Million YouTube Views
The South Korean boy band got 550 million YouTube views for its "DNA" video.
The boy band BTS has made YouTube history again, this time for its "DNA" music video, which has been viewed more than 550 million times.
The K-pop septet is the only Korean group to surpass the 550 million marker on the platform.
The song was released last year as the title track of BTS' mini-album "Love Yourself: Her," which also made history by hitting 350 million, 400 million, 450 million and 500 million YouTube views.
Inside Edition spoke to Cara Stevens, author of the unofficial BTS fan guide, earlier this year. She explained the hype behind the K-pop band and their legion of fans, known as ARMY.
“ARMY and BTS fans are an absolutely amazing force to be reckoned with,” Stevens said. “I would liken it to the Beatles, where fans are just wildly involved and the group is so wildly involved with their fans. There’s a two-way love affair going on.
"Fans can’t get enough and the group can’t get enough of their fans.”
