SEOUL, April 2 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's top portal operator, Naver Corp., said Wednesday its free messenger application LINE broke the 400-million download mark as more overseas users chose the service to connect with one another.

The milestone came four months after it had drawn 300 million users as of November last year. LINE was launched in June 2011.

LINE held more than 10 million users in 10 countries, with South Korea, the United States, Mexico and Malaysia joining the club this year. The app is serviced in 17 different languages.

Around 1.7 million users are newly downloading the app every day, with the number of subscribers in North America and western Europe booming, the company said.

Naver said LINE users around the globe were exchanging around 10 billion messages daily on average this year, along with 1.8 billion mobile "stickers" and 120 million voice calls.

The company said the free messenger service aims to reach another milestone of 500 million download hits worldwide by 2015.
