Aside from the music that K-pop brings to our lives, one factor that makes us more invested in the genre is the interesting personalities of K-pop idols. With the existence of social media, knowing them gets a lot easier!
Personally, I love checking the Instagram profiles of different K-pop stars because it gives me a glimpse of their ~other~ sides. Through their photos, I get to see life updates as well as their hobbies. Another thing that captures my attention is the way they come up with interesting IG handles! And this is what we're going to discuss right now.
Here are some K-pop idols with the wittiest IG usernames:
1. BTS' J-Hope - @uarmyhope
We're starting off the list with no other than J-Hope! Just by the way he introduces himself, it would be no surprise to see him here. That introduction, "I'm your hope, you're my hope, I'm J-Hope!" is so legendary and shows much of his bubbly personality. It reflected on his IG username, @uarmyhope. It's so impressive and heartwarming every time you read it as "you are my hope" because was also able to include BTS' fandom name, ARMY! Really, J-Hope, along with the rest of his members, never fail to express their love to ARMYs in all possible ways.
2. DAY6's Sungjin - @sungddenly
Right after the end of his mandatory military service, Sungjin *unveiled* his Instagram account. The DAY6 leader is the last member of the band to have opened a personal account on the said platform. His IG handle is so creative as he was able to include a reference from his name plus it sounds like the word "suddenly"! Well, his IG account did not just appear all of a sudden: It was a surprise that came along with his military discharge.
3. BTOB's Sungjae - @yook_can_do_it
Sungjae's IG username is simply...~everything.~ The mix of pun and motivation is excellently consolidated (ICYDK, Yook is his last name)! Just by searching him on IG, you will already get the dose of inspiration that you need. Imagine someone like Sungjae constantly reminding you that you can do it? Wow!
4. BLACKPINK's Rosé - @roses_are_rosie
As fascinating as a flower, BLACKPINK's main vocalist was able to coin a ~blooming~ username: Words that can easily create an image inside your head! It rhymes with her name and it has the same meaning. Now, imagine Rosé reading it with her Aussie accent. BRB, I'm melting.
5. IVE's Wonyoung - @for_everyoung10
Known for her sweet and captivating visuals, IVE's Wonyoung is truly a gem loved by many. More than just a pretty face, this female idol is born full of talent and wit. She picked an IG handle that best suits her image and personality! There's no doubt that even after how many years, Wonyoung's definitely going to stay *forever young*.
6. Red Velvet's Joy - @_im_yourjoy
Red Velvet's Joy is definitely a ~source of joy~! Just by looking at her, you can feel the positive aura that she has. Her beautiful smile can light up the world and her sweet voice can mend all the heartaches. These reasons explain not just her name but also her IG username. May it be for REVELUVs (their group's fandom name) or for anyone who loves her, we're all going to agree that she's nothing but wonderful!
7. TWICE's Tzuyu - @thinkaboutzu
Next on the list is someone who will occupy your mind and that perfectly describes her IG username. With her beauty and talent, TWICE's maknae (youngest) Tzuyu has all the positive adjectives to describe her. We have a lot of reasons to think about her and ask ourselves if it's really possible for someone to be that perfect! *swoons*
8. TXT's Yeonjun - @yawnzzn
Earlier this year, TXT's oldest member opened his personal IG account, making him the sole member of the group to have one. The 4th Gen It Boy himself is such a genius to make an IG handle that sounds like his name! It also has a fun spelling with the word "yawn" and the sleeping sound, "zzz." He is someone who works hard in maintaining his IG feed and we all can see it through the photos he posts! As of writing, this all-rounder male idol is currently the most-followed 4th Gen idol on the platform with 11.1 million followers. Well-deserved!
9. NCT's Mark - @onyour__mark
Do we really need to explain this one? This IG handle is simple yet very striking! With this username, we can easily identify or recognize that it's him. It's also very catchy and it's impossible to forget it whenever someone asks you about his IG profile. NCT's Mark just proved once again that he has this very *boyfriend* vibe in him.
10. BTS' RM - @rkive
Whether you're an ARMY or not, you probably know how intelligent BTS' leader is. From the way he writes lyrics, talks in interviews, and delivers speeches, we have all seen how great RM is when it comes to words. His IG username lived up to his wit! It basically means an archive and what else can we say? You better check out his IG profile because it's a whole place of ~healing ~when you get to see all of the *Namjooning* photos.
11. TWICE's Jeongyeon - @jy_piece
As well all know, TWICE is from JYP Entertainment. Just from that fact, we can already see why Jeongyeon's IG handle made it to this list! She was able to put elements from her own name and made it more creative by creating a username that sounds like her company. It's easy to remember and impossible to forget!
12. (G)-IDLE's Miyeon - @noodle.zip
From visuals to talent, Miyeon can effortlessly get everyone's attention. She's also recognizable by her name which is not difficult to pronounce. If you're wondering why she came up with this IG handle, it's because "myeon" means noodles in Korean—which sounds like her name. Completing it with ".zip" just symbolizes that her IG is a collection of beautiful memories in her life.
13. MAMAMOO's Wheein - @whee_inthemood
Wheein is the type of person with so much creativity in her. It was seen numerous times in the way she performs as an artist and she applied it in her IG username. Just by reading it, you will already know that it's her! The "in the mood" part is like telling us that we'll be able to see more of her in different atmospheres of life.
14. SEVENTEEN's Seungkwan - @pledis_boos
You read it right...but this isn't CEO Han Sung Soo of Pledis Entertainment. This is the one and only Boo Seungkwan of SEVENTEEN! Known for his bubbly personality, it's no wonder that Seungkwan would come up with a humorous IG handle. So adorable of him to think of something like this to joke around with his boss. Such a cutie!
15. KANGDANIEL - @daniel.k.here
Completing our list is a K-pop star that can be introduced in various ways but really, he needs no introduction! The Nation's Center, KANGDANIEL, has a simple IG handle but it's like he's telling us that he's *here.* Well, there's no need for that because his presence, talent, and everything in between is just so admirable! Visiting his IG profile will allow you to see his interesting hobbies, artistry, love for SpongeBob SquarePants, and affection for cats.
