Seoul – What a way to start the new year! Jungkook’s Facebook page reveals that BTS’ youngest member has broken the world record for the fastest Instagram post to reach a million likes.
Jungkook managed it in just two minutes.
His first Instagram post in 2022 showed the star in a beach sunset scene welcoming the new year.
His caption reads: “The year ends so quickly and it’s a new year. Thanks to many people that I was able to spend this year happily and steadily without my body and my mind. I was so grateful and you all worked so hard. Let’s not get sick and be happy. Apobangpo (ARMY forever Bantan forever)”
Jungkook also posted a photo of himself with his two Italian greyhounds, Song and Paeng. He also has Bam, a Doberman, who isn’t in the picture. That doggie post garnered 10 million likes. Woof! Woof!
Wionews reports that fellow BTS member V broke the record for the fastest Instagram profile to reach one million followers. That took 43 minutes. V who currently has 30 million followers, also holds the record for being the fastest to get 10 million followers. That feat was accomplished within 4 hours and 52 minutes of his debut on Dec 6 last year.
V overtook Jennifer Aniston, Taeil Moon of NCT and Rupert Grint with his Instagram records.
On Instagram, Jungkook has 28.3 million followers and counting. He also trended at #1 and #9 worldwide after he posted his boxing video on Instagram and hit #2 in the US.
So here’s the downer. Three of BTS’ seven members tested positive for COVID-19 recently upon returning from their concert tour. RM, Suga and Jin was down with COVID-19 in December. All have since recovered.
The moral of the story may be that when you go viral, well, you may really go viral. /TISG
