South Korean juggernaut BTS is officially becoming the billion-view music video leader. After the group's four other music videos hit a billion views on YouTube, their “Fake Love” music video has joined the billion club marking the group’s fifth video to surpass the numbers.
On September 8 around 8:40 a.m. KST, the music video surpassed 1 billion views on YouTube. Previous four music videos to achieve the milestone, include “DNA,” “Boy With Luv,” “Dynamite,” and “MIC Drop (Steve Aoki Remix).”
BTS also currently holds the record for fastest Korean group music video to reach 1 billion views (“Dynamite” at seven months and 22 days).
The song had two music videos, both directed by Yong Seok Choi. Premiered on May 18, 2018, the first video follows the story-line of BTS' fictional narrative universe and depicts the band dancing on various sets. The second video, an extended version of the first, was released on June 1, 2018, and has some additional footage.

BTS later promoted the song with televised live performances on several South Korean music programs in 2018, including M! Countdown, Music Bank, and Inkigayo. It was also included on the set list of their Love Yourself World Tour (2018–19).
