The 5 most followed male K-Pop idols on Instagram

Social media has the power to make anyone famous regardless of their talent. It comes secondary in my opinion. In today’s world, a celebrity isn’t a celebrity unless he has a reputable fan following on platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube because the more followers they have, the bigger is their voice and more is their influence. It has become more like a rat race where everyone’s goal is to have a greater follower count than the other. We have listed down the 5 most followed K-Pop celebrities on Instagram!  

  • K-Pop was born in 1992 when a group of 3 men named Seo Taiji and Boys performed in a Television Talent Contest.
  • Though the judges were not as much impressed but the audience present in the studio and the viewers went crazy after seeing the perfectly synced performance. 
  • Today, K-pop is a multibillion industry who has a massive following not just in Korea but all around the world. Scroll down to find out the 5 most followed male K-Pop idols of 2021.


5. G-Dragon (Big Bang)


Also known as Kwon Ji-Yong, he is the “King of K-pop”. With a total following of 19.8 million, Kwon occasionally uploads selfies and art-related stuff. Ji-Yong likes to restrict captions to emojis only. You will hardly see any long phrased captions under his posts. Going through his feed, you can tell how much the singer loves art. Big Bang’s lead vocalist charges $120,000 per sponsored post.

4. Byun Baek-hyun (EXO)

You can call Jackson the “king of Instagram” as he is the most followed male idol on Instagram, and why wouldn't he be, just look at that chiseled jawline. GOT7 singer’s follower count is 24.9 million. Wang’s feed is a mix of professional and personal photos. For a paid post, he charges a whopping $120,000 from the brands. 

Regardless of the number of followers, I think what truly matters is talent. That’s why I think now we have a greater responsibility of following the right people so that the opportunities they deserve to have don't go into someone else’s bucket.
