Which BTS members are in the top 5 male idols with the largest number of followers on Instagram?

Which member’s name will be at the top of this chart?

Despite the fact that it has been 8 years since their debut, 7 BTS members finally opened their personal Instagram accounts on December 6, 2021. 

After a short time of setting up their Instagram, the BTS members quickly gained tens of millions of followers and within a few months, all 7 members of the group quickly became idols with the largest number of followers on Instagram. However, which 5 members are in the top 5 rankings?

1. V – 35.9 million followers

Topping this chart is none other than the group’s visual, the most handsome man in the world – V. Up to now, V has surpassed popular male idols like G-Dragon (BIGBANG), EXO members… and even Lee Min Ho to become the male artist with the largest number of followers in Korea.


V also owns a series of records on this social media platform such as the fastest account to reach 1 million and 10 million followers in the world (recorded by GUINNESS). In addition, the male idol is also the one who owns the most-liked photo on Instagram in Asia region, overcoming BLACKPINK Lisa’s series of huge milestones

2. Jungkook – 33.7 million followers

Which of V and Jungkook‘s fan bases is larger? This topic is widely discussed on social media platforms, and many people wonder if the Instagram follower rating reflects the members’ true popularity.

And the answer is clearly true; with a disparity of over 2 million followers, Jungkook appears to be inferior to his fellow members of the group, despite his Instagram having only 33.7 million followers. However, by subtly removing the two letters “jk” from the English alphabet to create his unique account’s name, the male idol has started a trend that has gone viral on social media.

3. Jimin – 30.8 million followers

3rd place on this chart is Jimin with 30.8 million followers. Although he has only posted 7 posts on this platform, the number of followers of the male idol is also quite impressive.

He also surpassed other famous names like Jackson (GOT 7) and Cha Eun Woo (ASTRO) to achieve this position.

4. J-Hope – 30.3 million followers

As the member with the highest number of posts in the group, J-Hope currently has more than 66 posts and an extremely artistic personal Instagram’s feed. He also updates his account with photos and Instagram storis on a daily basis.

With not too big a difference in the number of followers, I wonder if J-Hope can surpass Jimin to rise to the 3rd position of this chart?

5. Jin – 30.1 million followers

As the member ranked 5th on this chart, Jin has just surpassed 30 million followers on Instagram. Especially in the account description, he also mentioned his company name ‘BIGHIT MUSIC’ very carefully.


The follower gap between Jin and J-Hope, in particular, is exceedingly small. I’m not sure which name will “surpass” the other in the near future between the two members.
