On February 28, fans were surprised to discover Jungkook’s personal Instagram account

which had over 50 million followers, getting suddenly deleted

Soon after this happened, Jungkook reassured fans through Weverse, writing

I deleted my Instagram account. It wasn’t hacked. I just deleted because I wasn’t using it much… So don’t worry

In his other posts, he mentioned that he will continue to communicate with fans using Weverse Live instead

He wrote, “I immediately deleted the [Instagram] app too, and I don’t think I’ll be using it from now on! I just wanted to let you know in advance!”

Jungkook first launched his personal Instagram account on December 6, 2021 along with the other six BTS members
