Guinness World Records officially recognized NCT’s Taeil for amassing one million followers the fastest on the Instagram. It’s official. July 13 PET, NCT’s Taeil has been recognized by Guinness World Records as the fastest person to reach 1 million followers on Instagram. The 27-year-old famous Korean started his activities on his personal account (@mo.on_air) on July 6 by sharing a selfie with the description “On air”.
Since then, it took him just one hour and 45 minutes to reach seven-digit followers. The aforementioned time made the K-pop superstar the person who attracted such a number of followers the fastest, but this feat was not immediately made official by Guinness World Records until a week later, on July 13th.
