Pann: K-pop group ranking of each country's Youtube views in the past year

1. [+254, -17] BTS is definitely doing well overseas. I was so shocked when I saw the views for Brazil

2. [+219, -19] Wow BTS...

3. [+206, -5] I see a comment below that says it's useless if the views are less than 10 million, but the K-pop audience has gotten much bigger than before. Bigbang didn't even release an album but they're still #1, it's amazing. BTS has been around for 3 years only but they're big already. We don't need to mention the big 3 groups like EXO, SNSD, and GOT7. I hope K-pop gets more popular and becomes a major genre.

4. [+107, -4] BTS is really popular in the West. Bigbang didn't even have new releases but they're always in top 3.

5. [+99, -6] BTS gets a lot of hate in Korea but the reality is that they're really popular. Admit it.

6. [+91, -2] Bigbang and BTS are dominating overseas.
