'Ddu-Du Ddu-Du' is a song of the group's 2018 mini-album 'Square Up'.

Blackpink has become the first K-pop group to have a music video with more than 1 billion views on YouTube, the group's Seoul-based agency said Monday.

YG Entertainment said that the female group's Ddu-Du Ddu-Du music video surpassed the threshold in the afternoon, nearly 17 months after it was released last June.

Blackpink is the second K-pop artist with the achievement, after singer PSY, whose mega-hit Gangnam Style has 3.4 billion views on YouTube.

The quartet, who debuted in 2016, is one of the most popular groups on the K-pop scene.

Ddu-Du Ddu-Du is a song of the group's mini-album Square Up. Its music video surpassed 10 million views on YouTube just six hours after the release. It reached 900 million views on July 30.

Another of the act's music videos, Kill This Love, released in April, has garnered more than 640 million views, while music videos of its hit singles Boombayah, and As If It's Your Last both topped 700 million views on YouTube. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
