Here are eight Instagram accounts from idols that are aesthetically pleasing.
BLACKPINK Jennie's Second Instagram Account
Most fans know of Jennie's main Instagram account, @jennierubyjane, but the female idol actually has a second, smaller account, @lesyeuxdenni!
This account exhibits Jennie's photography skills. Each photo has a white border, but none of the posts are aligned with each other, making the overall layout very refreshing, unique, and eye-catching.
The photos are often textured, and the color palette is reminiscent of old school cameras, showing Jennie's aesthetic.
EXID Hani's Instagram Photography Account
Like Jennie, Hani also has a second, smaller account, @dot__film_. From framing, color toning to typesetting, every photo is snapped with care.
Hani favors travel photography, taking photos of beautiful landmarks and different places' sunrise, sunsets, and skies. Though she does not update this account as often as her main account, @ahnhani_92, people are always looking forward to their next upload.
G-Dragon's Artsy Instagram Account
Every VIP (BIGBANG fan club) follows G-Dragon's Instagram account, @xxxibgdrgn. The male idol's Instagram is filled with art, and it's almost like entering an online exhibition!
Every single corner of his Instagram shows off his trendy fashion and art skills. G-Dragon has an overall consistent color scheme and filters, showing his style.
In his photos, G-Dragon shows perspectives that are difficult for ordinary people to find. Talk about unique!
WINNER's Kang Seungyoon's Photography Instagram Account + WINNER's Mino's Artistic Personal Account
Kang Seungyoon is a male idol with two Instagram accounts. For photos of himself, he shares it at @w_n_r00.
However, his artistic side truly shines in his photography Instagram account, @y8n_l8ks_at.
In the latter Instagram account, Kang Seungyoon has worked not only with his WINNER members but also with portrait photographers.
Seungyoon's photos are toned down in terms of colors, making the overall layout calming and comfortable.
Mino, on the other hand, uses his personal Instagram @realllllmino to show off his paintings!
His art is shared alongside photos of the idol, his fashion sense, and sometimes photos with friends and the other WINNER members. His Instagram perfectly shows off Mino's artistic sense of style.
Red Velvet Seulgi and Joy's Trendy Instagram Accounts
Seulgi is another female idol with an aesthetically pleasing Instagram account, @hi_sseulgi!
The idol usually has a pattern for posting - she takes photos of her on the same day, wearing the same clothes or in a similar space, and uploads three posts at once, creating a harmonious layout.
Seulgi also often plays with colors and filters, showing her artistic side.
Joy also does something similar on her Instagram account, @_imyour_joy!
She takes photos in one location, wearing the same clothes, and posts three posts at once. This is pleasing to the eye, as each row has its own theme.
It appears the Red Velvet members take good care of their Instagram accounts!
BTS's Official Instagram Account is Eye-Catching
Big Hit Entertainment may run BTS's Instagram account, @bts.bighitoffical, but that does not mean they slack on the aesthetics.
The company makes use of numerous posts to create one big image, perfectly utilizing the 9-square grid layout to make an eye-catching image.
This is done for their promotional photos, as well as to greet the members a happy birthday! Who says posts have to be boring just because the company runs them?

Top 5 Most Famous K-Pop Vocalists Of Each Year From 2012 - 2021
While the “Big 3” in K-Pop has been less clear in recent years, for a long time SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and YG Entertainment were known to be at the top of the K-Pop industry.
Because of this, their idols tended to get more attention and popularity than those from smaller companies, due to the larger budgets and better marketing that the companies could afford to use on them.
Thanks to Google Analytics, we can go back in time to see which K-Pop idols were being searched the most over certain periods of time, which can be a measure of an artist’s popularity or at least how much interest fans have in them. While we’ve looked at other idols in the past, today we’re focusing on the idols who are known as vocalists in their groups.
These are the 5 most-searched K-Pop vocalists from the “Big 3” companies of each year over the last decade! Each graph shows how highly searched they were in comparison to each other, and the final “overall” graph compares all 16 vocalists to each other in total over the decade.
