Do you know which MVs Koreans watched the most in 2021?
Youtube Korea recently announced the Top 10 MVs most viewed by Koreans in 2021. Since this is a chart that only counts views from users in Korea, the next step may be different from the global YouTube. Solo artists with a strong digital music presence will frequently have an advantage over Kpop idol groups. In addition, some MVs don’t need to have a super high total view but still make it to the chart, the reason is that they match the tastes of Koreans in the past year.
Here are the Top 10 MVs most watched by Koreans on Youtube in 2021.
