No wonder Jungkook’s video from FIFA’s official YouTube page topped YouTube. It would gain more appeal around the world and be watched even by those who are not fans of BTS. This video has over 24 million views in less than a week.

After confusion over the release time, the video in second place was the official music video for “Dreamers.

After shooting it in October, ARMY was pleased to see the finished product, and after it was published on the FIFA channel, it gained more attention around the world. The video currently has over 18 million views.

The video in third place is the full performance, which was posted on the YouTube channel BANGTAN TV, with over 17 million views.

When the stats were released, Korean fans couldn’t help but marvel at Jungkook’s global influence.

  • “I think the crowd cheered loudly because the performance left a strong impression.”
  • “Even people who don’t normally praise idols said he was cool. There were so many comments saying he’s cool.”
  • “The teacher, who is my friend and usually not interested in idols, asked me if I had watched his performance and praised the visuals, Jungkook’s singing and dancing, which made me realize that even non-k-pop fans have an explosive reaction to his performance. Many older viewers felt his performance reminded them of Michael Jackson.”
