It is not very usual for K-pop idols to have their official personal Instagram accounts. ITZY Chaeryeong and the rest of her co-members are only some examples of it, as only a few K-pop stars are on the platform officially.

But, there is reportedly a reason why this is the norm in the K-pop scene. Some netizens shared their thoughts on the matter in the online forum, Quora.

Why ITZY Chaeryeong Is Not On The Platform

In an old thread on the platform, some individuals emphasized that the members of ITZY do not have personal social media accounts, including Instagram.

One claimed that artists under JYP Entertainment, which is the group’s agency, do not usually launch personal accounts on social media platforms. The idols, instead, share one official feed for their respective act’s activities and engagements.

The same commenter noted, though, that this does not seem to apply to the agency’s solo artists.

Another netizen, meanwhile, stated that most South Korean entertainment agencies do not allow members of K-pop groups to have personal accounts on media platforms. As added, this is especially applicable for rookies.
