Here is the official list of Top 10 YouTube Videos for Korea 2016, excluding K-pop music videos. These all come from the YouTube Korea Blog. Other sites (like AllKPop) have already addressed the popular K-pop music videos for the year, but Google's blog post includes a section excluding those. Here they are with some brief explanations from me.
Top 10 non K-pop YouTube Videos in Korea 2016
- [핑크퐁] 핑크퐁 상어가족 외 43곡 인기동요 모음집
Very popular set of songs and dances for kids. Perfect to entertain your crying baby so you can browse your phone in peace. (Embedded above)
- [Newstapa] 삼성 이건희 성매매 의혹, 그룹차원 개입?
News piece on Samsung's former head Lee Gun-hee, when he was caught on film by one of his prostitutes. Dads are probably watching this on their phones while the baby watches #1 on the TV.
- [JOUJUYOUNGTOYS] 콩순이의 율동교실 인기 7곡 모음
A cute hippo character Kongsooni (콩순이, maybe because he looks like a cute little bean?) singing educational songs for kids. Another one you can let the baby watch.
- [Mnet Official] 쇼미더머니5 LIVE 비와이 ‘Day Day’
This guy (who I want to call B.Y. but apparently is Anglicized as BewhY because reasons) won Season 5 of the reality rap star competition "Show Me The Money".
- [KBS 한국방송] 뮤직뱅크 언니쓰 'Shut Up'
On Korea's "Music Bank" live performance show, the group "Unnies" (Older Sisters)'s perform "Shut Up." And yes, they are truly older.
- [Overwatch KR] 오버워치 단편 애니메이션 '용'
Character background stories for the gameplay in Overwatch
- [CarrieAndToys] 차밍걸스 초콜릿 파티시엘 장난감
Carrie makes some kind of desserts. Got to get the kids into cooking shows early, so they'll eagerly watch Please Take Care of My Refrigerator later.
- [Mnet Official] 위키드 1화선공개 오연준 '바람의 빛깔'
A show called "We Kid" aka "We Sing Like a Kid" featured this boy Oh Yeon-jun ripping out the most tear-jerker "Colors of the Wind" version ever.
- [영국남자] 한국 안주를 처음 먹어본 영국인들의 반응?!
The "Englishman in Korea" himself made the list. Koreans were enamored with how he got British people to taste and react to Korean snacks.
- [JTBC Entertainment] 아는 형님 X 트와이스 '매니저 인사이드'
Girl group "Twice" were on the talk show "Knowing Brothers" and this extended footage clip showed some scenes that were cut from broadcast (if I understood that description correctly).
