BLACKPINK, BTS compete to set a record: Which group’s achievement is more remarkable?

Without an appointment, BTS and BLACKPINK have just set a new record. Achievements that no other Kpop artist has achieved.


Currently, BLACKPINK is focusing on year-end group activities. Recently, they caused a fever with the international tour. Although controversial, but that cannot deny the charm of the YG girls.


In particular, member  Lisa  has had a new record despite having a solo debut for a long time. Accordingly, Lisa’s song “LALISA” reached number 1 on the iTunes Top Songs chart in Kyrgyzstan more than a year after its release.

This achievement makes  “LALISA” the first song by a female artist in history to reach No. 1 on the iTunes Top Songs chart in 103 different regions globally.


Previously, the record for #1 for female artists’ songs belonged to Adele, who topped the iTunes charts in 102 different regions with both “Hello” and “Easy on Me”.

Accordingly, BTS’s hit song “Boy With Luv” MV (feat. Halsey) has officially surpassed 1.6 billion views on the YouTube platform and becomes the first BTS MV to achieve this achievement.

Previously, the Korean music videos that have reached this milestone are only PSY’s “Gangnam Style”, “DDU-DU DDU-DU” and BLACKPINK’s “Kill This Love”.

However, compared to the MV with the most views of a Kpop group, BTS still cannot surpass BLACKPINK. Specifically, the MV  “DDU-DU DDU-DU” of the 4 YG girls has now surpassed 1.9 billion views and is currently the MV holding the Kpop record of a group.

It’s true that they look cute and pretty in these outfits, but I think it’s not okay because they go around like this as a group.
