Fans of popular boy band Exo, Exo-Ls, can now get a glimpse of an additional member’s life. Kim Jong-in, also known as Kai, surprised fans last week by opening a new personal Instagram account three years after deleting it.

After posting for the first time, the K-pop star’s account gained 1 million followers in a little over 15 hours. This in turn has placed him on the top three of the fastest Instagram accounts to gain a huge following in a day, even beating Kylie Jenner’s record of reaching 806,000 followers in the first 10 hours.

While Pope Francis holds the fastest record to reach 1 million Instagram followers within 12 hours of launching his account, Kai is the second Instagrammer to gain one million followers in a short time on the photo and video-sharing app. Kylie Jenner is currently in third place followed by footballer legend Cristiano Ronaldo and South Indian internet sensation Priya Prakash Varrier.

Kai’s Instagram followers are expected to increase following the excitement of local and international EXO-Ls.
