It is also the sixth K-pop group music video to gather half a billion views. BTS is expected to hit the road for their worldwide "Love Yourself: Speak Yourself" tour on 3 May. The exact numbers are still being calculated by YouTube, but now, a little over 36 hours since its release, the MV is already at 100 million views. Released on May 18, 2018 at 6 p.m. KST, it took "Fake Love" about 10 months, 26 days, 20 hours, and 7 minutes to reach this number.
