Actress Park Shin-hye now has more than 7 million Weibo followers, her agency S.A.L.T Entertainment said Wednesday.
Weibo, China’s most popular SNS, is one of the main ways of measuring stars’ popularity in China. Park has so far gained about 7,006,000 followers, becoming the first Korean actress to break the 7 million mark.
Park has enjoyed huge popularity overseas through her appearances on the TV dramas “You’re Beautiful,” “Heartstrings” and “The Heirs,” which have been adored by many Chinese fans.
She is currently starring in the SBS drama “Pinocchio,” which has been receiving great attention. Though only six episodes have aired so far, it has received around 170 million views in total on China’s most prominent video clip distributor, YOUKU.
In “Pinocchio,” Park plays Choi In-ha, who suffers from the fictional “Pinocchio syndrome” and, as a result, is unable to tell a lie. The 24-year-old actress is drawing attention from viewers for her natural acting skills in the drama, effectively portraying Choi’s honest and loving personality.
The rom-com airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10 p.m.
