SM Entertainment's Red Velvet has not had a complete comeback since the 23rd of December, 2019, with their album "The ReVe Festival Finale." The album contained 16 tracks, the three most famous being "Psycho," "Umpah Umpah," and "Zimzalabin." 

Due to an unfortunate accident, Red Velvet's Wendy had a hiatus for her surgery and had to recover. 

Since then, the only release Red Velvet has had was Irene and Seulgi's subunit release entitled "Monster" and Wendy's recent solo debut, "Like Water," and even though they have not had a complete comeback since 2019, SM Entertainment's Red Velvet is still making breakthroughs.

Red Velvet's "Russian Roulette" has made a recent milestone was with their 2016 hit track.

As of writing this article, the female K-pop group's music video for their hit song, "Russian Roulette," has gone beyond 200 million hits on YouTube. This happened approximately around 4 p.m. Korea Standard Time on the 15th of April. 

Released in September of 2016, Red Velvet was able to achieve this milestone five years after "Russian Roulette" hit the scenes.

Beyond this, Red Velvet's "Russian Roulette" won Best Music Video at the 2016 Melon Music Awards. 

Coming to the Extended Play with a similar name, Red Velvet's "Russian Roulette" is the group's third music video to reach 200 million views on YouTube. The other two Red Velvet songs being "Bad Boy" and "Psycho."

Currently, Red Velvet's "Russian Roulette" has 200,162,434 views and 1.9 million likes.

Following this, Red Velvet's "Russian Roulette" previously hit 100 million views on YouTube in 2018. This made SM Entertainment's Red Velvet the seventh K-pop girl group garner 100 million hits and the third girl group from SM Entertainment to make the previous milestone.

Congratulations to Red Velvet. More milestones to come!

Reveluvs are expectedly happy for their K-pop group to reach this milestone but are still hoping really hard for Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri to have a comeback together soon!
