'I Am The Best' Is The 1st 2NE1 Video To Hit 200M Views

The music video surpassed 200 million views a little after 1 a.m. KST on March 5, 2018, making 2NE1 the seventh K-pop artist to hit this milestone after PSY, BIGBANG, BTS, TWICE, BLACKPINK, and Girls’ Generation.

I will never be okay with what YG did to them.

I don't think any of us will ever forgive that mistreatment.

This was the video that introduced me to kpop (I had heard of boa but never liked her stuff enough to look more deeply into it) & I was obsessed with it, which is weird to me when I consider that I don't listen to iatb (or even 2ne1) that much anymore. I remember a bunch of fashion blogs I followed on tumblr were always reblogging it. I was obsessed with Minzy's chainmail hood look, she was instantly my fave because she stood out to me so much.

I remember taking a while to actually get into kpop itself though since 2ne1 had such an individual concept. There wasn't really an ideal jumping-off point from loving 2ne1 to liking kpop.

everything in this comment is exactly me! i saw a gifset of this mv on tumblr, got way into 2ne1, decided to check out other kpop artists but was disappointed that none of them were like 2ne1, only learned to appreciate kpop over a year later. and minzy was my instant fave too lol.
i remember seeing a few other kpop mvs before i heard of 2ne1 (snsd's gee and igab, gangnam style of course, and randomly enough, hello venus' venus) but they were the first to really grab my interest

Same for me too - friends I knew liked Big Bang and Miss A and Brown Eyed Girls and showed me videos, but they were way too over the top / melodramatic / weirdly sexualized for my taste at the time.

But IATB hit a nerve and it stuck with me, and then I later got into all those same groups I'd shunned before, especially Big Bang.

Weirdly enough BEG and BB were two of the groups that I liked originally - Sixth Sense was such an epic that appealed to me as a music student as did I suppose their more mature sound, and BB being similar to 2ne1 helped me like one or two of their songs.

This was the first K-pop song I've ever heard. My friend and I were obsessed with it and we kept posting it on each other's Facebook.

sra_interesante 5th-Mar-2018 12:07 am (UTC)

eternal bop
ashdevilrun23 5th-Mar-2018 12:17 am (UTC)
I remember sitting around at home waiting for it to drop 😭 This was always the song I used to introduce friends to Kpop

I want YGE to get dragged for not tweeting it and then if they tweet it, dragged again.
sayuridoll 5th-Mar-2018 01:04 am (UTC)
why does everything yg touch turn to shit like it's so tragic what he does to all his groups.

this one one of the first kpop videos i ever watched and i remember i was mistified by it, lmao.

#1 gg in my heart.

But in terms of iconic 2ne1 songs, I always thought Can't Nobody was more of a bop than IATB.
neongoldtooth 5th-Mar-2018 07:17 am (UTC)
this was their peak imo.
i honestly felt like this was where they got it 100% right and i was waiting for more bops like this.
loved their latest stuff but i just thought this was the moment that was gonna propel them....honestly thought
these girls were gonna be around for so much longer.
myungung 5th-Mar-2018 11:19 am (UTC)
this is definitely their biggest song, so I'm surprised it took so long to reach 200m views. but congrats girls!
