Lee had about 10 million followers in November last year and 20 million by February, just three months later. Recently, Lee made an announcement on his account about his upcoming film "Gangnam 1970" and received more than 40,000 comments from fans. South Korean singer Psy is next in line with more than 24.4 million followers. Before being overtaken by Lee, Psy had the largest number of Weibo followers among Korean stars.
