I’m writing this letter in English because I didn’t feel that I could express myself clearly enough in Korean. Although I am Korean, I was born and raised in America. I can’t lie and say that I’m your number 1 fan in the world. I’m sure that there are others like me that have been charmed by your personality and are even more devoted than I am to you. What I can say is that my appreciation of you and everything that you do is completely genuine and that I am a complete and utter fan of yours. From the first Into the New World performance I watched all the way to SM Town New York you have been my bias (what we call favorite members in the States).
And you being my favorite member isn’t even as far as it goes. You have had such an impact on my life farther than my musical preference. To this day, I can’t decide whether it’s that you embody all of the qualities I like in a girl, or whether you set those qualities. The line is blurry and I don’t know whether I’ll ever be able to draw that distinction. I wish there was a better word to use than perfect, but I can’t think of one. Maybe ideal would fit better. You are the cream of the crop, what others should aim to be.
You also are a role model for me. Your pursuit of education and good study habits is encouraging and I find that it helps me when I am tired of studying and work. Your pursuit of a healthy lifestyle is also something that stays on my mind whenever I go out to eat or sit at my desk wondering if I should go exercise or not. Even at SM Town, I was so encouraged to see you taking the time to wave at all the fans and be so energetic. It made me wonder how anyone could ever not be hopelessly in love with you. There is just so much to you that needs to be appreciated. People say that celebrities that don’t appreciate their fans don’t deserve to be celebrities. You deserve to be a celebrity 100 times over in that respect.
I really hope that you never get discouraged or have doubts about what you are doing or have done. You give joy to countless fans and your smile may just be what keeps some of us sane at the end of a long day. I know it must not be the easiest lifestyle for you either. Through the hectic schedules and never ending events, I hope that you can be encouraged by fans that will love and support you until the end. You should have self confidence in not only your looks, but how your presence in concerts and TV shows and everything else about you that the public sees affects so many people positively. I know you have definitely been a HUGE positive influence on my life, and I’m sure there are countless others like me. If ever there is a time where you are feeling down please think of us, the endless Seororo’s, Seobaby’s, and Seomates that will continue loving you until the very end.
A loving and adoring fan forever and ever,
