BTS’ V has another feather to his cap by surpassing yet another milestone on Instagram.
The BTS member, who currently boasts 57.8 million followers on Instagram, also garnered the highest average number of likes per Instagram post.

Apart from that, V is currently the only celebrity in the world to boast an impressive engagement with fans.
Fans of the singer were thus happy to see V achieving another milestone. They took to Twitter to congratulate the singer on garnering the highest average number of likes per Instagram post.
