Big Bang attracts 10 million YouTube subscribers
Despite having four of its five members enlisted in the military, Big Bang has now reached over 10 million subscribers on YouTube, as of early Monday, K-Pop Herald reports.
This qualifies the quintet to receive the Diamond Creator Award and will be given a Diamond Play Button by the video platform.
The quintet joins the likes of other K-pop acts such as label mate BlackPink and the seven-member boy group BTS.
Apart from the Diamond Play Button, users who have over 100,000 subscribers will be given the Silver Play Button, and a Gold Play Button will be awarded for those who reach over one million subscribers.
Big Bang’s official YouTube account boasts 13 videos that have over 100 million views; their single “Fantastic Baby”, a hit in the local scene, holds over 360 million views.
In the week prior to winning the award, YouTube Premium released an original documentary focusing on the life behind-the-scene of K-pop superstar G-Dragon, entitled “Kwon Ji Yong Act III: Mott”. JB
