Fellow boy-band sensations EXO also proved their appeal this past month. Not only did their winter single "For Life" bow on both lists (No. 6 in America and No. 4 worldwide), but member Chanyeol and his collaboration with Punch for the popular Korean drama Guardian: The Lonely and Great God also ranks high as "Stay With Me" is the third-most watched K-pop video for the month.
The popularity of the Guardian official soundtrack is further felt in December with singles like "Beautiful" by Crush (No. 9 in America, No. 5 worldwide) and "My Eyes" by 10cm (No. 9 worldwide).
Seventeen is another hot boy band with their "BoomBoom" video as the fourth-most viewed K-pop in the U.S. last month and sixth internationally.
Meanwhile, Heize and Girls' Generation member Hyoyeon represented the ladies in December. Hyoyeon's "Mystery" video is No. 7 on the U.S. list and No. 8 on the worldwide one, while the Heize's "Star" visual is No. 8 in America and No. 7 internationally.
The last point of interest comes from K.A.R.D, a new, co-ed act whose debut single "Oh NaNa" was the fifth-most watched video in America last month and No. 10 on the international ranking. Mixed-gender groups are much more rare on the K-pop scene and the impressive performance of "Oh NaNa" on YouTube could indicate exciting things for K.A.R.D in the future.
