“Cute” like YG idol: Coldly doesn’t follow anyone on Instagram

From idols, actors to models, YG doesn't need to follow anyone on their personal Instagram accounts but still has a huge following.

Most K-pop idols have personal Instagram accounts. It’s a place for them to post their everyday moments, interact with fans or interact with other colleagues. However, fans always wonder what kind of image YG idols will see when they scroll through their own Instagram page when they don’t press the follow button to follow anyone. Many people even joke that this has become a tradition because from singers, to actors or models under YG Entertainment, all have similar habits.

G-Dragon is the one who started the “cold” trend of not following in the K-pop music industry. Artistic Instagram page of leader BIGBANG with 19.8 million followers was established on July 19, 2012. In fact, during nearly 10 years of playing Instagram, G-Dragon used to follow famous Japanese singer and model Kiko Mizuhara. She used to be the “rumored lover” of the male idol.

Another YG group leader who also follows the no-following system is Mino (WINNER). In the past, Mino used to follow quite a few other Instagram accounts until he was discovered by Dispatch to follow an account called prettypuke that often posted photos with sensitive content related to children. Since that scandal, the Really Really vocalist decided not to follow anyone anymore.

This famous YG tradition of “cheating” is also responded to by BLACKPINK . All 4 girls, even though they each have 40-50 million followers, don’t follow anyone. In particular, Lisa is quite tight-lipped when fans only see her like and comment a few times on her group member’s photo. Interestingly, when posting photos, Lisa usually only attaches an icon on the caption.

On May 3, Naeun officially signed a contract and became an actor of YG Entertainment. Both Naeun and the famous Weightlifting Girl actress Lee Sung Kyung have official Instagram accounts that do not follow anyone else. Previously, Naeun used to follow relatives, but there was a time when anti-fans insulted Naeun’s family, so the singer decided to unfollow them all to avoid being bothered by antis.

In addition, the male cast under YG is no exception. Model, actor Jang Ki Yong and model, rapper, actor VIINI own an Instagram page with a huge number of followers, but no one is lucky enough to have the two guys press the follow button.

Another interesting exception is TOP . BIGBANG’s eldest brother used to be a member of YG’s no-follow group. But earlier this year, TOP suddenly clicked to follow a single account. Not a member of the same group or family, but an account that posts pictures of Alpaca sheep. Since then, TOP has joined the “follow only me” group.

This particular tradition of YG idols is not necessarily a bad thing. More than anyone else, they are the ones who understand that their private lives are always scrutinized by netizens. Just a moment of carelessness to miss like or unfollow someone is enough to make them tired of being talked about by Knet.


The 4 YG girls finally joined the Weverse social networking platform on August 2. In the clip less than a minute, fans were feverish because of BLACKPINK’s trendy and trendy outfit.
