There’s no denying that Choi Siwon is the Twitter King in the K-Pop realm with close to 3 million followers.
Among his 2000 something tweets, Choi Siwon has everything from inspirational Bible verses to good mornings and good nights to fans all over the world with each passing day.
Despite his busy schedules and flying from country to country, Choi Siwon has always let fans know what he was up to with daily tweets, greetings, and most importantly, pictures to show his love for his fans.
So as 2012 comes to a close, we looked through his twitter deck and picked out some tweets that we found noteworthy of being spotlighted.
An Announcement to the ELFs
On October 26, Choi Siwon made the hearts of all the ELFs frozen in time for a couple of hours when he tweeted, “Today, I have something to tell all the ELFs. Please look forward to it.”
Fans started to freak out, wondering what Choi Siwon’s big message could be. A new drama? A new album? A new girlfriend?
He finally broke his silence on the same day, saying “My dear ELFs, I heard that there is a strong objection to me growing out my hair. But I will not succumb and continue growing my hair until it’s the length that is shown in this picture. So why don’t you just start supporting me ^^? You pretties. *_*”
Although it wasn’t the announcement that fans were expecting, they received the message graciously and showed signs of support and laughter.
Funny enough, Choi Siwon recently got a haircut.
Playtime with Daddy
The life of a superstar can be quite busy sometimes, but Choi Siwon always finds time for his family and it brings himself down to earth even more, if possible.
On September 23, he tweeted, “Catchball with dad in Han river! It was fun! :) Have a nice weekend!”
Whether it’s playing catch with his father or remembering his grandmother on her day of passing, Choi Siwon had fans aww-ing with all the sweet family moments.
Teaching about Korea and Learning about the World
One of the pros of Choi Siwon’s twitter is that he writes in both Korean and English so that his global fans can also see what he’s up to.
But it’s never one-sided as Choi Siwon tries to make his Twitter more interactive by getting the fans involved.
On March 13, he tweeted, “Our country is known for mirrors, cosmetics, jewelry boxes, red ginseng, seaweed, kimchi, clothing, accessories, among others... Could you tell me the different types of goods/products your country is known for?
As he introduced South Korea, Choi Siwon asked about the countries where his fans resided, and we’re pretty sure he received an overwhelming response from his fans around the world.
Support for Nichkhun
When 2PM’s Nichkhun was involved in a DUI accident, many people criticized the younger singer for being irresponsible. Choi Siwon showed his support for the singer by posting a message of encouragement.
On July 27, he wrote, “A few days ago, Korean idol group 2PM member Nichkhun was involved in a traffic accident while drinking and driving, which is an absolutely illegal action To this point Nichkhun should regret and refrain from committing such actions ever again. I believe he is examining himself more because of this accident. Nichkhun is a symbol of the Thai dream of success and has significance for both Korea and Thailand. Let us give him time to reflect from which he will emerge a better and reborn person. Thank you.”
The tweet went viral and became a hot topic with people wondering if Choi Siwon should have said anything about the incident or not.
While many criticized Choi Siwon for trying to get involved in a situation that has nothing to do with him, others praised the singer for showing support for his junior.
Fat Choi Siwon
Parodying Se7en’s When I Can’t Sing, Choi Siwon tweeted on April 9, “Even if I lose everything, even if my popularity falls, even if I can no longer sing, even if I get fat, can you continue loving me for who I am ^^ You will, right *_*?? Puhoot!”
Included was a chubbier looking Choi Siwon using one of those fun applications on a smartphone.
And how many ELFs said they’ll love him?
Super Junior Love
Wrapping up the year, Choi Siwon did what he does best - “Love!” especially to the perhaps some of the most special people in his life.
The tweet went up on December 28, showing the currently active Super Junior members getting ready to put on another amazing show at an end-of-the-year music festivals.
The simple one-word tweet seemed to contain all the overwhelming feelings of how he felt towards the other members as they completed another fulfilling year together.
We hope Choi Siwon continues to update fans through his twitter as he starts a bright new year.
And in the words of Choi Siwon:
