'Eternal Sunshine' is Ateez's 'fastest video', reaches 10M views in 18 and half hours
After having a marvelous comeback with 'Deja Vu,' the eight-makes-one team of fourth generation K-pop idols have not much to worry about. Ateez has made heads turn with their power moves in any song they perform, be it covers of other K-pop groups or be it their own songs. The boys are making slow and steady progress by the day and their fans are giving them all the more reason to do so.
Coming from a comparatively smaller agency, KQ Entertainment, the boy group Ateez has been one of the many boy bands to have seen gradual and organic success which is a fruit of their own hard work as well as support from a dedicated fanbase. With 'Deja Vu' releasing on September 13 and amassing a total of 23 million-plus views and 1 million-plus likes on YouTube, the boys charmed fans with a sexy concept.

Ateez sets 'personal best' record
The song 'Deja Vu' was released as the first of two title tracks from Ateez's latest album, 'Zero: Fever Part 3' on September 13 as part of their double title track format that they have been following since their last mini-album, 'Zero: Fever Part 2' which had 'Inception' and 'Thanxx' as the two tracks which saw the group set a personal record upon its release. Ateez released 'Thanxx' on August 23, 2020, which surpassed 10 million views in 21 hours and 50 minutes since its release.
In typical Ateez fashion, the boy band broke their personal record with 'Eternal Sunshine'. According to KQ Entertainment, the K-pop group Ateez broke the record for their 'fastest music video' to reach 10 million views on YouTube. On October 4, Ateez broke its own record when the group's latest music video, the second title track for 'Zero: Fever Part 3' recorded 10 million views and counting at 7:00 pm KST.
Ateez recorded 10 million views in 18 hours and 30 minutes flat, which is their personal best so far. The song 'Eternal Sunshine' also joins Ateez's other songs, 'Inception', 'Thanxx' and 'Deja Vu' to become their fourth music video to achieve this feat in such a short period. The music video for 'Eternal Sunshine' highlights the charm of each of the eight members with a catchy melody and refreshing visuals in contrast to the smug and sensuous 'Deja Vu'.
