Beijing: Hundreds of fans of Chinese actor and singer Lu Han stood in long lines to touch a post box in Shanghai after the pop star posted his photos with it, in what many netizens in the communist nation thought was a “crazy” act.

Lu (25) who shot to fame from after debuting in South Korean boy band EXO in 2012, posted a photo of himself and a post box on the Bund in Shanghai on his Weibo account last Friday. “It's Friday today, I was here, see you tomorrow,” the pop star wrote.

Soon, the post box – the sole purpose of which prior to April 8 was to receive mails to be delivered, has become the latest tourist attraction in China's financial hub. Lu's fans have been photographed standing in a 300-metre long queue at midnight to pose for photos with the post box.
