An online community board revealed charts of the number of YouTube views and weight of K-Pop groups within the past year in different countries. The post was created to show that errors can happen with statistics. Numbers shaded in blue have the lowest weight while numbers shaded in yellow have the highest weight.
For the United States, MONSTA X held the most weight (14%) in views within the past year and the lowest weight was BLACKPINK. If we look at just views, BLACKPINK has more than four times as much than MONSTA X. BTS’s views are twelve times more than MONSTA X as well. So, we cannot conclude that having a low weight connects to having low views in that country.
