Kim Seon-ho has managed to win many hearts all around the world with his 'good boy' act as Han Ji-pyeong in the popular tvN drama Start-Up which also starred Suzy, Nam Joo-hyuk and Kang Han-na. Many of these fans have sent over their letters for Pinkvilla's Dear Oppa series where they express their admiration for the 34-year-old actor's impeccable acting talent and gorgeous dimples.

Today's heartwarming letter has been penned by Meghna Bhuyan from India dedicated to Seon-ho's impressive performance in Start-Up. In her letter, Meghna revealed that she aspires to visit South Korea someday just to get the 2 Days 1 Night star's autograph. Read her letter below:

Dear Seon ho,

I know you must be receiving countless fan letters and this is just another one of the many. But I wish that this finds its way to you.

In all honesty, Start-Up was your introduction to me. At first glance, I thought, okay so this is the second male lead. When will Jo Hyuk-shi enter? XD And that was the only time when I waited for him. Because after that Start-Up for me, became all about you.

All characters of the show depict inspirational stories, no doubt. And no obstacle is considered big or small. But to me, Han Ji pyeong's story became the soul of the drama. You were the link between all stories - be it the letters of consolation, Do San's introduction, halmeoni, Yong san's revenge or Dalmi's sandbox. You were one character but you played all these roles so magnificently. Hat's off to you.

Many people were saddened in the end. However, I think you did get your own version of happiness. Being able to meet Young sil, your confidante and being able to invest in a project that meant a lot to you. And of course, not being alone, but having a family by your side. Ji pyeong became the definition of selflessness. Selflessness not just in romantic relationships but in relationships of all kinds of love and friendship.

Needless to say, your smile won the hearts of many, along with my own. I am an 18-year-old student currently preparing for my exam and I hope that someday I become successful enough to visit South Korea just to get your autograph. Of course, it would be a dream come true if I could get to know you, however, as a mere fan, I couldn't hope for more than just an autograph.

Thank you, for being the reason behind so many smiles along with my own. I eagerly await all your future projects.

With all my love and support,
Meghna

Honestly I just decided to watch this drama out of the blue and as the first male to be introduced, I completely fell in love with his character. I honestly went in completely blind thinking he was the main lead, so when it turned out to be do-san, well I couldn't help but be shocked. As the series progressed I still had hope. Although I liked all the characters, Han Ji Pyeong has a special place in my heart and I hope he gets other opportunities in which he is the main lead.

As I always say everyone has a right to their own opinions. The cast did a wonderful job in portraying their character but to say that Kim SeonHo(Han JiPyung)character is the "soul" of the drama is unfounded. Come on now, fans was probably feeling for the character who lost his parents but he did exceptionally well for himself as we saw in the drama. He did grandma a favor in writing those letters but those letters meant nothing to him but as we saw in the drama Dosan did not write the letters but he came through from the start for Dalmi. Han JiPyung was 15 years too late.

I fell in love with him( Kim Seon Ho) and was really sad that he didn't end up with the woman he loves. His character is the best, kinda like Philippa Georgiou in Discovery, only difference is he is slow in taking actions and he gave up. I do understand why Do san ended up with Dal mi and I think it's a lesson for all of us to learn. Speaking from a personal experience, sometimes just take a chance, sail off without a map. If it works for you then you're happy, if it doesn't, at least you know you tried your best and you're ok with that. You will be at peace with yourself, believe me it's such a relief. You won't be bothered with statements and questions of ..." Maybe if I had done this, said this, or what will have happened if I really the truth about how I feel, think ..." and so on. Trust me, it's not the kind of regret you want to live with. If it's meant to be, it will be. If not, then it's not meant to be. Take that step. I really want to watch more of his movies especially if he's the male lead. I'll like to see him in love and I really want to go to South Korea to see him. I think he's a fine handsome man and his smiles , I love them. Best of luck my Favorite South Korea Actor.

I enjoyed his performance but reactions from toxic fans ruined it for me. I liked the other characters too! It was obvious from the beginning Dalmi and Dosan would fall in love. I have watched a couple of his movies- 100 Days my Prince and Stronest Delivery Man and he played the same kind of role in both dramas. Maybe he should try something different!

He didn’t play the same kind of characters in 100 days my prince and strongest deliveryman. In strongest deliveryman he was a rich brat who turned good in the end. In 100 days my prince he was the son of a concubine who didn’t get the recognition he deserved until the prince noticed him for his talent of solving riddles. The only similarity was that in both dramas he liked the main girl for a while. That doesn’t mean he plays the same kind of characters. Go watch the dramas again without spreading false news. Any real fan of Kim Seon Ho knows that all the characters he played were different from each other.
