As the accounts with the largest number of followers in Kbiz, it is not surprising that the 3 accounts above once held the record with the highest number of likes on Instagram. However, recently, Jung Ho Yeon, an emerging actress after the great success of Squid Game and only had 18.1 million followers, has risen to be the celebrity with a post that had the highest number of likes on Kbiz Instagram.
