The number of Instagram followers became an important indicator of how “famous” the star is. And of all the stars, BLACKPINK certainly has an impressive record in this criteria.
Jisoo, the eldest of BLACKPINK members, is the Korean actress with the most Instagram followers. She made her acting debut in JTBC’s Snowdrop last year. Nicknamed “Human Dior,” the number of followers rapidly increased in September, exceeding 65 million as of October 8th.
Then who’s the K-pop star with the most Instagram followers? The answer is Jisoo’s teammate Jennie, who has 70.9 million followers. In addition, Lisa, BLACKPINK’s Thai member, has 83 million Instagram followers, which is the highest among all celebrities active in Korea. Rosé also has a staggering number of followers of 63.8 million.
These figures show just how popular BLACKPINK is. But the Korean actress with the most Instagram followers might change soon, as Jennie is about to make her acting debut under the name Jennie Ruby Jane in HBO’s The Idol, produced by The Weekend, next year.
