NCT member Taeil set a new Guinness World Record for fastest time to reach one million followers on Instagram.
Guinness World Records announced Tuesday, July 13, that the feat was achieved in just one hour and 45 minutes after Taeil’s first post.
Taeil created his Instagram account, mo.on_air, last July 6. As of this writing, it now has 1.9 million followers.
In the Guinness article, the idol thanked his fans who made the social media milestone possible. “I was so surprised when I heard the news,” he said.
“I never imagined myself becoming a Guinness World Records title holder, and am truly grateful for all the love and support. I would not be here without my members and our NCTzens. I’ll try my best to connect and communicate even more though socials. I love you all,” Taeil added.
Guinness said that Taeil broke the record previously set by Harry Potter star Rupert Grint who reached one million Instagram followers in four hours and one minute in November 2020.
Other record holders for this category include Friends star Jennifer Aniston, David Beckham, and Pope Francis.
Taeil made his debut under the sub-unit NCT U in April 2016. He is also part of NCT 127 sub-unit.
