This list was done mostly out of curiosity. I also have become aware that in many fandoms getting view counts on official videos has become important. So here is a list of accounts I can find that are official. This is by no means complete but I will try to keep it updated as I find more.
For the record, there is another LOEN floating around but it uploads MVs by artists that aren’t from LOEN Entertainment which is why I didn’t link it.
For the record: CJ Entertainment is a MASSIVE company in Korea. MNet Media and many other smaller labels fall under the CJ Entertainment label. You’ll find both Epik High and T-ara on this page. If you don’t know what label your favorite artist is from try this channel first.
Happy Face Entertainment:
Star Empire Entertainment
I’ll update if I find more. Check the tags for the artists you’ll find at these channels.

2NE1 just released “Ugly” today and after reading the translation literally I must admit I was disappointed. I am a very literal person I don’t like to dig around and run in circles for things that I feel should be obvious. After stepping back and going “maybe it’s not meant to be taken literally,” my respect for 2NE1 sky rocketed.
After sitting back and watching the music video and understanding the lyrics I felt like I had water splashed in my face. How many girls have sat back and went “I think I’m ugly,” or “just like her I want to be pretty,” and “no body wants to love me”? On my main tumblr blog I follow a “reason to lose weight” blog and someone submitted a reason that said “so I can find love.” (reasonstoshed.tumblr.com) I, just yesterday again at my main tumblr, made a post about the double standards in international Kpop fandom sparked by Siwon’s teaser photo. It’s conflicting and difficult to be a girl sometimes and so much is based around our appearance and our own self-confidence.
This song hits on so many feelings that girls do have and 2NE1 was the prefect group to release it. 2NE1 is easily the “ugly” girls of Kpop, with their boyish/tough image, they just don’t quite fit in with the SNSD/A-Pink/T-ara etc world of girl groups.
I think I’m ugly and nobody wants to love me
Just like her I wanna be pretty
Don’t lie to my face cause I know I’m ugly
I’m just…flabbergasted to be honest. For many girls this song hits home, hard. Even I am going “I’m guilty of thinking of all the things said in the chorus.”
On the 26th group 2NE1 will return to the stage to show off their flashy new moves with their new song “I am the Best” on….*drumroll* SBS’ Inkigayo.
