(Op-ed) The Mystery of Disappearing Youtube Views of BTS 'Boy with Luv' Music Video

It's still a mystery where the Youtube views have gone.


On April 12th, BTS released the music video of 'Boy with Luv' -- the title track of their album 'Map of the Soul: Persona' -- on Youtube. Not to mention, fans had been so excited to enjoy the MV on the video platform. On top of that, ARMYs have also joined forces to stream the music video to show supports (and break records) on Youtube. 


Unfortunately, several fans have found that the view counts of 'Boy with Luv' has "mysteriously" gone. ARMYs claimed that Youtube has deleted at least 10 million views from the video and even trended hashtag #YouTubeGiveUsOur10MillionBack worldwide. Some others believe that it's not 10 million but at least 22 million views disappeared in total. 


So, did Youtube delete it? Let's see what's really going on. Fans have reached Youtube on Twitter and the video platform broke the silence with their statement, "We don't delete views! We do slow or freeze the view count for popular videos while we verify that views are real—that shows the system is working as intended. We still count every view. Once quality views are counted, view count updates more frequently." That's what they say
According to Youtube, they slow or freeze because they want to make sure the views are real. Well, yes, it's totally logical since we all don't want to get fake numbers. Youtube views are frozen because they are going through it, making sure they are not from bots and they slowly add the checked ones. So, why does Youtube take some view counts that they have checked and submitted already? That's what we think


Well, eventually, no one knows what really happened with the view counts -- only Youtube does. BUT. Thanks to ARMYs' loyal support to BTS, the music video has achieved three different Guinness World Records: 'Most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours,' 'Most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours,' 'Most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours by a K-pop group.'


What do you think about this, ladies and gentlemen? We hope there will be no more confusion about Youtube view counts in the future -- not only for BTS' videos but also for others'.
