Congratulations Girls' Generation on the YouTube accolade!

On January 5, 2009, a nine-member K-pop girl group known as So Nyeo Shi Dae (SNSD) -- now better known internationally as Girls' Generation -- released the music video for their latest mini-album at the time titled "Gee." Highlighting innocent love with vibrant colors and a bubblegum pop beat, both the girl group and the agency representing them, SM Entertainment, knew it would be popular for the niche it was targeted to. Little did they know that "Gee" would become their breakout hit.

Now nine years later, "Gee" has reached a monumental milestone. It has earned over 200 million views on YouTube.

According to Yonhap News, Girls' Generation's "Gee" surpassed the 200 million views mark on YouTube on Monday, February 5, 2018. SM Entertainment stated that it passed the views threshold at approximately 12 a.m. KST.

Girls' Generation is still making waves more than a decade after their debut!

It should be reported that "Gee" is not the first music video by Girls' Generation to surpass 200 million views on YouTube. That honor technically belongs to the music video of their most popular song, "I Got a Boy," which passed the views threshold back in November of 2017.

The fact that Girls' Generation, a K-pop girl group that might technically be on its latter end of its lifetime, is still earning 200 million views for their music videos is a testament to their fame and respect especially with present day K-pop girl groups like Red Velvet, Black Pink, and Twice (in which the last on the list holds the record for a music video reaching 300 million views in the fastest time with "TT").

Yet, it can be stated that if it weren't for Girls' Generation pioneering K-pop girl groups, new talent like Red Velvet, Black Pink, and Twice would not have the same success as they do now.

Ultimately, all we can do is just congratulate Girls' Generation and show them love for their latest achievement. With only five members left if we are to say that being part of this iconic girl group requires a contract with SM Entertainment, K-pop fans -- especially Sones (Girls' Generation fans) -- don't know how long Girls' Generation will be around.
