Dear Kim Soo Hyun Oppa,

I am a 23 years old K-drama fan since lockdown started in March. I delved into the world of K-Drama and found you. 

I first saw you in My Love From Another Star and there was something about you that called me out. After that I met you in Moon Embracing the Sun and everything changed. I had no idea it was going to be you from Episode 6, but you in that King’s attire rocked me to the core. 

Since then, your presence always enticed me in. I remember every time I smiled with you, every time I smirked when you made remarks to your advisers; however, the most important moments were when I cried with you. I cried my heart with you. I became so emotionally attached to your character in Moon Embracing the Sun because your acting was unbelievably authentic. Even though you got your happy ending, I could not stop my tears everytime I rewatched the series. I even made my older sister watch it because the series is a masterpiece and she became crazy about you, and rewatches the series when she wants to cry, smile and laugh! Same like me!

And then...I thought I cried enough with you, but you came like a tsunami in It’s Okay To Not Be Okay next, and I became vulnerable with you. You possess such artistic qualities to make an audience be in awe of you. Oppa, I am in awe of you. You gave me strength even when I cried so much with you. You showed that it is okay to cry, and to let your pain out. But crying is part of life so after that, your beautiful million-dollar smile made it all worth. Oppa, saranghaeyo! I wish the best for you. Stay healthy and keep smiling. I am smiling so much even after I cry because I remember your smile. Thank you for making me smile.
