Another achievement to be added to a library of Love Scenario achievements.

On June 1 Love Scenario MV  achieved 100 million YouTube views making it iKON’s first MV to get 100 million views.

This achievement is even more impressive when you consider that only 6 Korean boy groups have MVs with over 100 million views and iKON is the youngest and fastest among them to achieve this milestone.

Just day before iKON has released a Japanese version of Love Scenario topping real-time digital charts in Japan.

There is no stopping Love Scenario!
