V is proving his global reputation when setting a series of records on Instagram despite just having a personal account.
On the afternoon of December 6, BTS suddenly announced the personal Instagram accounts of 7 members. This is the first time the members have joined this social networking platform after 8 years of working in the entertainment industry. As expected, BTS is currently the top group in the world, so they will definitely break a lot of records on this platform. It’s just that no one expected them to do it so quickly, especially with member V – the owner of the @thv account.
Specifically, most recently, V has become the Asian artist with the most liked posts in Instagram history. This is V’s 2nd post after making his account public, with 2 different pictures in the same post. The first photo is a black and white photo, and the second is a close-up zoom of his face while using shaving cream.
This post hit 13.7 million likes in just 22 hours, which is also the fastest among Asians using Instagram. V also beat the Asian artist with the most likes on Instagram, Lisa (BLACKPINK). Before that Lisa had an Instagram post that recorded 13 million likes after 66 hours and 55 minutes, and now this post is reaching 13.690.782 likes.
Up to now, the above post has recorded more than 14.7 million likes. This is an extremely impressive number considering that V‘s account currently has just over 21 million followers, while the old record holder Lisa has 68.9 million followers.
