South Korean mega-idol group EXO’s “Call Me Baby” was the most watched K-pop music video in the first half of 2015 on YouTube.

“Call Me Baby,” the title song of EXO’s second regular EP “EXOUDS” released March 31, recorded a smashing 52.4 million combined views on YouTube with its Korean and Chinese versions as of July 2.

The Korean version raked in 40,621,247 views, already making it the highest figure for any K-pop music video released in the first half of 2015, while the Chinese version added on an extra 11,766,282.

EXO re-entered the million-seller category with the combined sales of “EXODUS” and its repackaged edition, “LOVE ME RIGHT,” breaking the record they previously established in 2013 with EP “XOXO.”

EXO is slated to meet with Chinese fans on July 18 and 19 at Beijing’s MasterCard Center.
