NCT 127 Taeil uploaded his first post at 6:35 p.m. KST, and as of 8:20 p.m. KST, he succeeded in reaching one million Instagram followers.

This means it took only one hour and 45 minutes to hit the one-million mark after his first post.

According to Guinness World Record, they use the timing of the first post to measure the time to hit one million followers, and not the time the account was made.

The current record holder is Ruper Grint from the United Kingdom. He reached one million Instagram followers in four hours and one minute.

While Guinness World Record is yet to confirm Taeil's achievement as the fastest person to reach one million followers, gaining such a big quantity of followers is already a huge win for the singer.
