“The K-pop powerhouse group’s dynamic new single had 82.4 million views in the first 24 hours of release on YouTube, and was the No. 1 trending video on the platform. The view count handily topped the previous record-holders: BTS’ ‘Boy With Luv’ featuring Halsey, which amassed 74.6 million views in the initial one-day period in April 2019, per YouTube.”
Not only did BLACKPINK beat BTS for this record. The Kpop girl group composed of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa also surpassed 100 million views in record time. “How You Like That” reached the milestone in one day, eight hours, and 22 minutes, according to the Soompi article.
“The previous record for the fastest Korean group music video to hit 100 million views was held by BTS’s ‘Boy With Luv,’ which took one day, 13 hours, and 38 minutes to achieve the feat.”
Today, June 26, is “How You Like That” day for Blinks — the loyal fans of the popular South Korean girl group BLACKPINK. As befits true Kpop royalty, YG Entertainment has teased the comback single in a daily countdown prior to today’s launch at 6 PM Korea Time (5 PM Philippine Time).
