As a result, his phone broke down because of the massive amount of phone calls and messages it received at the same time.
SM Entertainment’s representatives stated about this, “Leeteuk’s Twitter account didn’t get hacked. The phone number he posted was his real phone number.” They continued by saying, “It looks like he wanted to play with fans and did this for April Fools’ Day. Since he got a lot of calls, his phone froze and broke down.”
Earlier today, Super Junior’s leader Leeteuk tweeted to fans, “010-4460-1117 is the popular celebrity Leeteuk’s real phone number. It’s 100% real. Please don’t be fooled by false phone numbers from now on, you can get in touch with me through this number.”
His partner in crime, Heechul, visibly envious, posted a proof shot showing Leeteuk’s phone condition at the time.
Netizens who were surprised by what Leeteuk did commented, “Oppa is really great,” “Will you change phone number now?” “As expected, he is so cool!” and “Super Junior Jjang!”
