The popularity of a K-pop group can sometimes be measured by the number of views they get on their songs' music videos. At times it takes years to foster a huge amount of hits. Other times it only takes days.

For a popular K-pop group, 10 million views are somewhat overwhelming and 100 million is attainable, but to reach 1 billion is actually a massive indication of the fame a particular K-pop group or artist has. With that being said, only eight music videos have gotten over 1 billion. Here is a full list of K-pop music videos on YouTube that have a little over 1 billion views:
