BTS ‘Suga’s “Daechwita” Takes New Milestone on YouTube; Deets inside
BTS’s Suga has taken it to the next level on YouTube! Suga’s music video for ‘Daechwita’ surpassed 300 million views on YouTube at around 9:35 a.m. KST (6:05 a.m. IST) on October 7. It’s been about a year, 4 months, and 14 days since the clip was released on May 22. , 2020, at 6 p.m. KST.
Released as Agust D (rearrangement of his name Suga, which is derived from the initials DT, short for his birthplace, Daegu Town, and “Suga” spelled backwards.) “Daechwita” is the first clip Suga’s solo to hit 300 million views. Among BTS member’s solo clips, this is the second to achieve this feat after J-Hope’s “Chicken Noodle Soup” and also the fastest to do so.
‘Daechwita’ is part of Suga’s second mixtape, ‘D-2’, released as Agust D. ‘Daechwita’ combines a unique trap rhythm and with the traditional military music known as ‘Daechwita’, and further includes a Korean traditional instrument sounds. In the clip, Suga voices two opposing polar figures against a backdrop that has come to life in the traditional palace from South Korea’s historic periods. In particular, the large scale of the “Daechwita” music video attracted a lot of attention, and SUGA’s “sword dance” performed in her hanbok captured the eye.
Not only that, Suga became the first Korean solo artist to appear on the US Billboard’s “Billboard 200” album chart, as well as the main “Hot 100” singles chart. The “D-2” mixtape continues to receive a lot of love from listeners around the world, even surpassing 400 million streams last month on Spotify!
Additionally, BTS members performed “Daechwita” together at their 2021 BTS Muster Sowoozoo in June. Congratulations to Suga!
