Move aside Kim K, this is what breaking the internet means. 

China's version of Twitter, Sina Weibo, crashed after former EXO boy band member Luhan announced his new girlfriend, Chinese actress Guan Xiaotong, on the social media site. The 27-year-old Chinese singer and actor posted on the social media platform at noon on Sunday (Oct 8), writing in Chinese: "Hi everyone, let me introduce her to everyone - this is my girlfriend @Guan Xiaotong."

His post has been liked over 5 million times with over 2.5 million comments. South China Morning Post reported that his post had sent Weibo into overdrive with traffic soaring at record levels. The platform crashed during noon and engineers worked at handling the increased traffic.
