YouTube has proven to be an important force in helping spread Girls’ Generation across the world. Their music videos have tens of millions of views each: “Gee” with 59 million, “Oh!” with 45 million”, and “Run Devil Run” with 33 million, just to name a few. However, not only are their music videos popular, but many fan-made videos and TV show clips are as well. These videos have been important in spreading awareness of Girls’ Generation on YouTube, not to mention the fact that they are funny, moving and informative in their own right. It can be really hard to actually come across a lot of these videos, but a new YouTube feature has made that task much easier.

YouTube created a new feature called “Topics” where they compile videos from all over the website into something like a channel that you can subscribe to. Google, as the owner of YouTube, has recognized the growing popularity of K-Pop, and in addition to their plans to create a dedicated K-Pop channel on YouTube, they have included compilations of K-Pop videos for their new Topics feature.

Girls’ Generation has their own topic into which YouTube has compiled all the videos relating to the group. The topic shows a description of the group: “Members Hyoyeon, Jessica, Seohyun, Sooyoung, Sunny, Taeyeon, Tiffany, Yoona, and Yuri had — for the most part — been a part of Korean pop media, appearing in commercials and ads before winning places in Girls Generation and making their debut as such in the summer of 2007.”

The Girls’ Generation topic has over 133,000 videos compiled with a total of over 1.6 billion views. Not only are there hundreds of millions of views with their music videos, but the amount of videos related to Girls’ Generation is staggering.

As if that wasn’t enough, there are topics for each member of the group as well, compiling all videos of each member together. For instance, Taeyeon has over 37,000 videos with a total of over 500 million views.  The same goes with Tiffany’s topic. Jessica seems to be extremely popular, with over 100,000 videos and 1 billion views for videos that are related to her. Also, each member’s “channel” has a description of her and her accomplishments. For example, Sooyoung’s description includes her time before her debut with Girls’ Generation.  It says, “After winning first place in the 2002 Korea-Japan Ultra Idol Duo, Sooyoung was sent to Japan and debuted as a member of the duo Route 0, alongside Malina Takahashi.”

You can subscribe to each member as well as the group to see new videos of them on your YouTube homepage, from official videos from SM Entertainment to a fan-made compilation of Taeyeon laughing to the latest cuts of MC YulTi on “Music Core”.

Check out the Girls’ Generation topic on YouTube here, where you can also reach the rest of the members’ pages on the sidebar. The new Girls’ Generation and member topics will no doubt strengthen their fast growing popularity outside of Korea. Watching Girls’ Generation videos has never been easier.
