Scarlet Heart: Ryeo locked in one billion views down on Chinese streaming website Youku nearly a month ago in late September, and now the cast and crew can celebrate a new milestone: two billion!

The drama’s lead actor, Lee Joon Ki, who is gripping audiences with his portrayal as fourth prince, Wang So, updated his Instagram on Aug. 26 asking, “What? How!!!!??” followed by, “Listen up!!!!” He then proceeded by announcing the drama’s latest achievement and gave a “super thank you” to all his international fans along with a video of himself beaming in a casual hoody. Watch that clip here.

Lee will be showing his fans love in-person starting with his mini fan meeting on Nov. 1 where he’ll be watching the series finale with the lucky attendees. Starting on Dec. 3 in Seoul, formal fan meetings around Asia will be held with confirmed stops in Japan and Taiwan.

“The fan support that Lee Joon Ki receives from domestic and foreign fans is incredible. His fan base has grown across all age groups and he even has a strong male fan base. He wishes to thank everyone for supporting him and he is extremely grateful,” said a source at Lee’s agency, Namoo Actors.

As the drama continues, the number of fans grow along with our tears and anxiety.

I am not ready for the drama to end next week, are you?
