K-pop idol Kang Daniel opened his personal Instagram account on January 2, following the official disbandment of Wanna One.

In the space of 11 hours, he'd already surpassed one million followers, breaking the previous record of one million followers gained in 12 hours by Pope Francisco's Instagram in 2016.

That's right, Kang Daniel got followers faster than The Pope. He's also officially broken the Guinness World Record now thanks to this achievement.

Guess it's time to follow Kang Daniel on Instagram if you're not already!
