Pan-Asian girl group "Twice", accumulated 50 million views on YouTube with their track "Like OOH-AHH" on Monday.

The girls' debut song, Like OOH-AHH, released in October 2015, made the 50 million view count in nearly six months of its upload on YouTube. The Twice had been active in Korean music scene since their debut, busy appearing in variety shows and reality shows.

The nine-member group gained attention from the fans since their pre-debut, because the girls are from a survival audition program "SIXTEEN", which was aired on MNet, 2015. Twice is special by the Korean music scene standards since four of its members are foreigners. Sana, Mina, Momo are Japanese, and Tzu-yu is from Taiwan.

According to Ga-on Charts, Twice made an impressive debut by selling 34,991 albums during its first two months of albums release, and by adding 14,913 albums sold during December, the girls were ranked in the top five of the girls groups who sold the most albums during that period.

The girls' debut song also received fans' love for a long period of time. Like OHH-AHH managed to stay in the top 10 of the music charts since its release until February 2016. This is considered a great achievement in the Korean music scene since its flooding with girl groups and it's very difficult for them to remain in the top ten for more than a month.
