G-Dragon has been the celebrity with the greatest amount of Instagram followers in Korea since 2014.

Lee Jong Suk also shared his thoughts on being chosen as No. 5 in this category. He revealed, “Because I wasn’t able to participate in many activities outside my projects, Instagram was a great way to communicate with Korean and international fans. Because this is an award that each and every single fan contributed to, I am even more thankful.”

Kim So Hyun won the award for Account With Most Growth, based on the increase in followers and how much the account utilized Instagram features such as Stories and live broadcasts.

BTS won the Top Boy Group category while BLACKPINK was chosen as Instagram’s Top Girl Group. Official accounts run by the group’s agencies with the most followers qualified for this category.
