Leeteuk apologizes for his Aprils Fools’ Day prank
Posted April 7, 2012on:
The singer shared his real cell phone number on his Twitter and on April 6th he wrote, “Please forward all calls to this number! All other numbers no no! I personally apologized to those people. So only this number! See this number? But only one call! My phone is ringing nonstop.”
Back on April 1st, Leeteuk shared the first three digits (prefix) to his cell phone number via Twitter. Since the number was incomplete, his fans added ’1004′ (which is pronounced as the word angel in Korean) from his Twitter handle ‘special1004‘ to the first three digits and called the number repeatedly. But the number belonged to an average Korean citizen, and this innocent person was inconvenienced by the high number of calls from Leeteuk’s fans. Leeteuk realized this and revealed his real phone number so the Korean citizen wouldn’t be bothered anymore but the citizen still received many calls after the fact.
Netizens who read Leeteuk’s tweet remarked, “Is this phone number real? I’m relieved that Leeteuk apologized“, “It’s not Leeteuk’s fault“, and more.
