V’s series of records on SNS started with the post, which exceeded 1 million like on BTS’s Twitter in 2017. Following that, V continued to achieved 3 million ‘likes’ on Instagram and 1 million’ likes’ on Facebook.


What’s more surprising is that almost every Korean celebrity has a personal account with huge followers. Meanwhile, V broke the record without having a personal account. It was actually a post on BTS’s official Instagram.

Despite having no personal account, V manifested his popularity among BTS members by having the largest number of followers on his fan pages.

Whenever V’s photo was released, his fashion items, such as clothes and accessories, immediately sold out, proving V’s brand name as a strong influencer.

With the records set by V on BTS’s official SNS, netizens called him “RECORD MAKER V”.
