From 2013 until 2021, BTS exclusively communicated with fans through joint social media accounts, but on December 6, 2021, they surprised fans by creating their own personal Instagram accounts.

Within an hour of creating their accounts, they showed their incredible star power and global influence by amassing over 2 million followers each.

The members have since had varying activity levels on the popular social media app, but Jungkook seemed to have a natural affinity for it early on.

From his creative first username, which contained the entire alphabet except for the letters “J” and “K”…
