Among all Japanese male celebrities, NCT’s Yuta has garnered the most Instagram followers.
According to Oricon, NCT’s Yuta reached about 5.01 million Instagram followers as of the afternoon of March 4, achieving the highest number of all Japanese male celebrities.
Yuta has recently beat out Tomohisa Yamashita, who now ranks No.2 with 4.93 million followers, by surpassing 5 million Instagram followers. Tomohisa Yamashita has remained in the top spot for a long time, but Yuta became the new number one star with the enthusiastic support of Korea, Janapa, and global fans.
Moreover, the fact that it’s been only a year since he first launched his account catches the eye. As a member of NCT and NCT127, he has been communicating with fans by hosting “Yuta at Home” at InterFM897 in Japan since December last year.
Meanwhile, NCT is enjoying an explosive rise in popularity in Japan. NCT127, which includes Yuta, topped both the Oricon Daily Album Chart and the Weekly Album Chart with their second-mini album LOVEHOLIC, released on the 17th.
