2020 was indeed a monumental year for Kim Seon Ho, thanks to his spectacular outing as Han Ji Pyeong in Start-Up. Already considered as a Hallyu star, the 34-year-old actor continues to win hearts with his warm childlike personality in the popular variety show, 2 Days 1 Night. As expected, Seonhohada are anxiously waiting for Seon Ho to announce his next project.

Today's heartwarming letter in our Dear Oppa series has been penned by  Lourdes De Guzman from the Philippines to Kim Seon Ho. Read her letter below: [Note: The letter was sent in December 2020.]


I am Lourdes De Guzman from the Philippines. First and foremost I would like to greet you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I would also like to thank you for having this kind of opportunity to express my feelings and appreciation to my favorite idol Kim Seon Ho.

I started to like him after watching Start-Up since episode 1 I am rooting for Han JiPyeong, team Goodboy until the end. Besides that his character motivates me to dream big and to follow my dreams. As the show came to an end, I also started to watched all of his interviews and his variety show 2 Days 1 Night as well as his other dramas and I could say that I really like him not only because he is Han JiPyeong but also he is Kim Seon Ho.

He is really an inspiration to me, a role model that I look up to. Though I am 4 years older than him but he inspires me to be a better person, to follow my dream and to be happy and contented on what I have as of the moment and not to worry about the future. His humbleness and being a good person is his charm to all of his fans that supports and love him. Thank you for being an inspiration to us we will continue to support and cheer for you. Goodluck to all of your projects especially your upcoming play ICE. I wished I could watch you in person as a theatre actor.

I am hoping you could read this because this only my way to say thank you and express how happy I am for you. I know I am only one of the fans that loves you and supports you but I am hoping someday I would be able to meet you up close and personal. Hoping you could visit the Philippines as soon as this pandemic is over. Always take good care of your health. Stay safe. But for the meantime, I will support you in silence from far away.

Thank you very much...

Lots of love,
Lourdes De Guzman
