King Daniel is more popular than the pope 👑

... at least on Instagram.

Kang Daniel has officially joined Instagram again (@thisisdaniel_k) and shared his first post on Jan 2 at 3pm KST. By 2:35am KST on the next day, he had already reached 1 million followers, meaning he reached the milestone in 11 hours and 35 minutes. Naver now reports that this makes him the fastest account ever on Instagram to reach 1 million followers. The previous record was held by none other than Pope Francis.

He is so unbelievably big. And his pics are so cute. Can’t wait to see what numbers he gets when he drops an album.

sra_interesante 3rd-Jan-2019 05:20 am (UTC)

I keep forgetting that he (and the rest of wanna one) is only irrelevant to me and not everyone else.

Same. I dont get it. I mean I did actively avoid them cause why invest in something that needs to end so soon, and groups i liked breaking up has scarred me enough, but their popularity is insane. A part of me wishes I had just gave in and stanned, but I think my hearts glad I didn't. Maybe now that its ending I will check out the kids that continue on and maybe old clips.
accioanime 3rd-Jan-2019 05:37 am (UTC)
there's such a huge gap between his popularity and the rest of the members... really makes me wonder how the wanna one boys will bode post-break up.

Kudos to him, I guess.


I assumed he still had his pre-debut IG that kind of got him in trouble on the show, but I guess he got off social media after that and never made a new one until now. He's super popular so this doesn't surprise me.

Ngl my reaction to him is always arresteddevelopmenther.gif

I don’t get it but I guess he appeals to others

Habemus papam!!

He deserves it more than the pope.

I don't follow Wanna One or Daniel Kang, but does someone want to tell me why he has an English name? I always wondered lol and never bothered to look him up. Was he born in the U.S.? Or is it a religious thing like that one actress Lee Elijah or Choi Daniel?
goshipgurl 3rd-Jan-2019 03:24 pm (UTC)
Iirc he disliked his birth name so she switched to daniel
ohbubbajoan 3rd-Jan-2019 02:53 pm (UTC)
why is he so popular in korea/asia? i knew he was big but not that big lol is he going solo after wanna one?
hilary_faye 3rd-Jan-2019 06:08 pm (UTC)
i'm glad at least i have y'all because while i mean he seems harmless and nice i guess i will literally never understand why people lose their minds over this dude. maybe if he was crazy talented/charismatic or something but even then he's just kinda....there.
goshipgurl 3rd-Jan-2019 06:45 pm (UTC)
i don't understand the negative comments here, he's harmless and cute... but then again some people here have no problem stanning actual problematic dudes so what did i expect


short update, he's now in the guiness world book

MTE. He's not even done anything to warrant this kind of negativity.
