The music video for “Knock Knock,” the lead track off Twice’s February album “Twicecoaster: Lane 2,” ranked as the most popular music video on YouTube for 2017 in Korea, the video sharing platform revealed Thursday.

It marked the second consecutive year that the group topped the list after it snatched No. 1 spot on the list with its music video for “Cheer Up” last year.

Following “Knock Knock” on this year’s list was another music video from the group, “Signal,” which is the lead track off the group’s fourth mini album with the same title.

YouTube’s beloved K-pop superstar Psy’s music videos for “I Luv It” and “New Face” ranked on No. 4 and No. 5 respectively.

English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran was ranked on No. 7 with his music video for “Shape of You,” becoming the only non-K-pop singer on the Top 10 list. It was the second most popular music video of the year worldwide.

“YouTube Rewind,” the annual list released by YouTube, estimates popularity of the videos based on view count, viewing time, the numbers of shares, likes and comments.
