The members of SEVENTEEN have become the first Korean celebrities to be featured on Instagram’s official Instagram account.
On March 11, the account uploaded a photo of SEVENTEEN in the outfits they wore for their performance of H.O.T’s “Happiness” at the “2016 MBC Gayo Daejejun” on December 31. The caption of the photo read, “Today, we’re hanging out with K-pop stars SEVENTEEN while they’re on tour in Japan.” Along with the photos, the account also featured an Instagram story on the idol group, following them behind the scenes at their “17 Japan Concert Say the Name #SEVENTEEN” concert in February.
This makes SEVENTEEN the first Korean celebrities to be featured on the official Instagram account, as well as the first Korean celebrities to have an Instagram story created about them by the account. The move to feature the idol group has also introduced SEVENTEEN to the largest single follower base on Instagram of 216 million people.
Congratulations to SEVENTEEN for the achievement, as well as for their recent round of successful concerts in Japan!
