* BigNameFan: Well, the first film was a sleeper hit and the second a commercially successful (if ultimately divisive) venture, so it's natural that it gained some of these. What's really notable is that the franchise has seemingly become a casual fandom fixture, almost on par with the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse or ''Franchise/HarryPotter'', for many of the biggest names in KPop, which has rapidly become a global phenomenon. Here are Sehun and Suho of Music/{{EXO}} [[https://i.pinimg.com/originals/43/96/48/439648a4fb91f0ddd97245d27370328d.jpg as Eggsy and Harry respectively]]; Wendy of Music/RedVelvet [[https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DOBsCXcVoAA3vT-.jpg as Harry]]; the Music/StrayKids boys [[https://twitter.com/TBloghub/status/1174290258013216768 being massive Kingsman fanboys in general]]; and so much more. This reflects the extreme popularity of the franchise in South Korea, to the point that Taron Egerton has attributed much of his career's ascent to the nation.
