Chinese social networking service Weibo accounts of Korean top actors Lee Joon-gi and Lee Min-ho outnumbered 10 million followers over the weekend.
Lee Joon-gi’s Weibo account outnumbered 10 million followers last Saturday in local time. The actor wrote a self-congratulatory message that, “I’m so happy that my family members increased like this.”
He went on to express his gratefulness to fans that, “I started to use Weibo so late that I still can’t believe that my followers outreached 10 million. Let’s be a supportive family members to each other. Congratulations!”
The “Two Weeks” star has been popular for his active communications with fans, such as writing reply in Chinese to his fans’ posts, which became the source of Lee becoming the first Korean star in his thirties to surpass 10-million Weibo followers.
“We’re planning to host overseas fan meetings in Japan and China early next year, and the inquires of its schedules and tickets are already hailing,” Lee’s agency IMX explained on Monday.
Meanwhile, Lee Min-ho wrote on his official Weibo account on Sunday that, “My Weibo fans outreached 10 million! Thank you! It’s all because of your support for me. I promise I’ll work harder from now on.”
Lee’s agency Starhaus Entertainment said, “It has distinctive meaning of surpassing 10 million followers on Weibo. Lee’s posts have an average of 30,000 to 60,000 replies and over 50,000 of shares. It means that fans’ concentration and loyalty on Lee is differentiated.”
