The8, who joined Instagram hours earlier, made sure the hierarchy on Instagram is clear by commenting on Mingyu’s first post, “I’m your sunbae.”

Mingyu replied, “I’m nervous. Don’t talk to me.”

Currently, The8 and Mingyu only follow each other on the photo-sharing application.

A fan poked fan on The8’s comment, relating it to a previous incident between Jeonghan and Mingyu which they shared during an episode of One Fine Day in Japan.

In the episode, it was revealed that Mingyu had once asked Jeonghan to address him as “sunbae” during their trainee days as he joined the agency first.

On the one hand, fans have speculated that other members may also be opening a personal Instagram account soon. One Twitter user even deduced that The8 and Mingyu announced the launch of their accounts at their birthdays in Korean Standard Time.

Also, a “#coming_up_next” accompanied the notice on the launch of the two SEVENTEEN members’ Instagram.

During the first hour since it was launched, fans raised an issue in following Mingyu’s Instagram. According to them, the photo-sharing application won’t let them follow min9yu_k.

As of press time, the SEVENTEEN member has over 245,000 followers in less than six hours.
