NCT’s Taeil K-pop group has broken the Guinness world record for “the fastest time to get a million followers on Instagram,” according to the agency’s official website. Taeil gained a million followers with just one hour and 45 minutes to go.
One week after the launch of the Instagram account, the number of followers is 1.8 million. So far, he has only five posts on the photo-sharing platform and only follows 7 people, his NCT teammates.
Taeil thanked his fans: “Thank you to all the fans!” I was shocked when I found out the news! I never imagined that I would get the Guinness World Records title, and I really appreciate all the love and support. I wouldn’t be here without my membership and our NCTzens. I will try to connect and communicate through social media as much as possible. I love you! – TAEIL ILARGIA “.
Before Taeil, Harry Potter star Rupert Grint had that record. Grint opened his Instagram with the announcement of his daughter’s birth in November 2020. He gained a million followers in four hours and one minute.
The star of friends, Jennifer Anniston, was one of the previous headlines on the record when she made her debut on Instagram, gaining one million followers in five hours and sixteen minutes. The first photo Aniston took on the platform was a group photo, along with friends from Friends.
