YouTube Reveals The Top 10 Channels With The Biggest Growth In South Korea

Youtube has released a list of the Top 10 official K-Pop channels which grew the most in 2017!

See if your favorite channels made the list.

10th – GOT7 

GOT7’s official channel is filled with cool versions of their choreography but there’s also plenty of funny videos of the members, like their GOT7-ing series.

Sometimes you get the best of both worlds – hilarious videos of their dance practices like this one!

9th – KARD

Super rookies KARD debuted only in July of this year, yet their YouTube views are incredibly high thanks to their immense popularity overseas.

You can see snippets from their performances all over the world on their channel!

8th – CJENMMUSIC Official 

Combine the distributing rights to a lot of major labels in Korea with the power of Produce 101, Show Me the Money and other MNet shows – and you’ll get a whole lot of views & subscribers!

The most watched video of all time on CJENMMUSIC Official’s channel is one of the most popular OST’s of the year.

7th –  PSY

Psy’s Gangnam’s Style is famous for being the first video on YouTube to break 1 billion views AND 2 billion views.

But with the release of New Face this year, he proved he’s far from being a one-hit wonder.

6th –  BIGBANG

Though BIGBANG’s channel is generally reserved for official music videos and tour teasers – BIGBANG also worked with YouTube Red to release their “Run, BIGBANG Scout!” series.

5th –  JYPE

The JYP Entertainment’s channel shows just how diverse & well-loved all of JYP’S artists are! Not only can we see all of their official videos here, you can check out how close the JYP family is too.

4th – SMTOWN

At over 12 million subscribers, SM Entertainment’s official channel shows no signs of stopping their growth.

One of their funniest videos from this year is this teaser for EXO Chen & 10 CM’s Kwon Jung Yeol’s SM Station collaboration “Bye Babe” – in which Kwon Jung Yeol’s manager accuses him of being drunk when he tells her Chen wants to collaborate with him.

3rd – 1theK 

1theK is the official YouTube channel for Loen Entertainment so this channel is overflowing with official music videos, interviews, and fancams of the artists they distribute.

Amongst all the great content released this year, this video reigned as most watched!


BLACKPINK’s official channel is one of the few outlets to see the ladies of BLACKPINK, which is probably one of the reasons for the success of their channel!

Never fear Blinks – it looks like BLACKPINK TV will be coming out very soon!

1st – Big Hit Entertainment

And of course, the home of international superstars BTS tops off the list at #1! Despite their behind the scenes (#BTS, hehe) content being housed on their Bangtantv channel, it’s easy to see that Big Hit’s official channel gets plenty of love too.

This video was posted only 5 months ago but is already their 2nd most watched video of all time on their channel!
