BTS’s V has made another record yet again and this time it’s on Instagram! He hit the record for being the first Korean male celebrity to reach 5 million likes on an Instagram photo.
This photo was posted to BTS’s official Instagram page and revealed his new hair color for their new comeback. The photo was uploaded on August 11 and reached 5 M likes in just about 47 hours.
The number of comments on the photo reached over 150,000, making it the second most commented photo after their BTS Map of the Soul group concept photo.
Just after the release of the photo, it topped Japan’s Twitter ranking site Twipple and also ranked first for the ‘Korean Artist Fan Activity Index’ out of all the Korean celebrities combined.
Although BTS does not run individual accounts and only has one official Instagram account, V was the first out the group to receive 3 M likes on his individual photo last year.
BTS will be releasing their third round of teaser photos on August 16 before releasing their new single Dynamite on August 21.
