Park Jimin, a vocalist in the world-famous boy group, BTS ranked as the number one most followed K-Pop artist on one of the most popular social media platforms – Instagram during the month of November.
Jimin, who is also referred to as the Global IT Boy of K-Pop, was able to achieve this feat despite the fact that he is not really a very active or regular user of the platform. As a matter of fact, Jimin only made three posts during October. Jimin has quickly garnered over 45 million followers in less than a year of joining the social media platform. The beloved vocalist was also the most followed K-pop artist on Instagram in July & August.
Fans lovingly refer to Jimin as the “SNS King” and he continues to justify the title with the many growing accolades to his name. Jimin has not yet made his solo debut yet and but still, he has been able to create a strong global presence for himself. Jimin is also the only K-pop artist to rank at number one on the Brand Reputation Ranking of Individual Boy Group Members for record 45 months.
Jimin is joined on the top by Kim Jisoo of BLACKPINK, who ranked #2 this month, after ranking #1 the last. Jisoo’s popularity has witnessed significant boost after the Born Pink era. The vocalist and actress also ranked as the most influential celebrity at At Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023. She was also the highest-earning Korean celebrity on Instagram last year.
Both Jimin and Jisoo are slated to be making their solo artist debuts in 2023.
