Super Junior’s Siwon becomes the first Korean celebrity to surpass 3 million followers on Twitter
Super Junior‘s Siwon is officially the first Korean celebrity to surpass 3 million followers on Twitter!
As of January 5th midnight, Siwon’s Twitter is being followed by an audience of 3,002,170 users, making him the Korean celebrity with the most followers in the world. The global idol also became the first to reach 1 million in December of 2011, and apparently, his popularity has only been growing.
Aside from Super Junior’s loyal fans, part of the reason why he has gained so many followers may be due to his constant communication with his fans through the social networking site. He’s known to thank his fan club for sending food and other gifts to his drama sets as well as posting behind-the-scene photos.
Siwon has posted photos of himself with notable people such as director Steven Spielberg and designer Karl Lagerfeld as well as Korean sports stars working abroad.
Super Junior’s Donghae and Leeteuk are following Siwon in second and third place, respectively, in terms of Twitter followers among Korean celebrities.
