Read her letter below: 

Dear Park Seo-joon Oppa,

You might not be able to read these because of the flood-like letters you have received and are receiving but I can dream and hope that a miracle would happen and you can read this.

It was in the movie “The Midnight Runners” when I first saw you and you captivated my heart the very first moment I looked at you. After watching that, I guess its destiny because I’ve watched the “Dream High 2”, “A Witch’s Love”, “Kill Me, Heal Me”, “Chronicles of Evil” wherein you starred and appear. So, as a young little girl at that time, I researched your name and know that it’s Park Seo-joon. The moment I heard your name it gives me this chills and vibes or referred to as “kilig” or romantic excitement. I got my Instagram account intended only to follow you and my Filipino idols, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. I literally don’t know what has gotten into me that I can't stop thinking about you nor seeing your face. You are my star. A star that shines so bright on my darkest and gloomy day. You give me hope when I feel like giving up, you make me smile when I don’t feel like it, you make us feel different emotions and we like it no, we love it. As a fan, you are our star.

I want to thank your management, the directors, scriptwriters and the staff you have worked with because of their great passion and good management skills, we come to see you and know you. Through your movies we got a glimpse to actually feel like we know you.

Your birthday is (today) and I’m hoping you’ll have a blast birthday. I, we will be rooting for your success.

I am Shermen B. Flores, 21 years old, proud to be a Filipino that came from the Philippines, I am one of your billion fans all over the world.

생일 축하해 기쁜 성탄과 행복한 새해를 보내세요
