Appreciate the hard work the Kpopmap staff put into making this list.
However, I would like to point out that you have forgotten two of the fourteen NCT members who own instagram accounts, all of which have well over 1m followers.
It would be great if you could add NCT's Doyoung (@do0_nct) and NCT's Jaemin (@na.jaemin0813) to the list.
