Dear young joon, 

With every plan going wrong, and all my decisions messed up, I picked Netflix as my solution. Mind filled with regrets on the wrong decision I started watching" What's wrong with Secretary Kim?". The screen displayed "Young Joon " , a guy with an attractive face and fit body that perfectly matched with branded suits and luxury cars. I knew then that Netflix was the right decision. I hate narcissistic qualities but when young Joon replied "I'm not cute. I'm fatally attractive" I couldn't decline it. While laughs and blush filled my face, Comfort and realisation filled my brains. Young Joon made me believe promises are meant to be and not broken. You taught me fear and trauma can't pull one down if you have a reason to push yourself up. Love is an emotion which gives strength to face the fear that you showed us. Your wedding excitement and preparations realised to me that the bestest moments of life must be lived and enjoyed to its fullest. Learning that you appointed miso just because she is miso melted my heart. Training her, making her capable enough to be irreplaceable love isn't all about candles, cakes, hugs and kisses. I re-explored what true love is all about. Sharing all your worries and seeking advice from my best friend for all your doubts, I saw a reflection of myself in you. From you, I discovered jealousy isn't cheesy and confidence isn't creepy.  As I wrap up I wanna thank you for introducing me to the world of Saranghae and oppa, Ramen and Kimchi, and to a world without exit- Kdrama. Finally, I wanna say I'm not gonna miss young Joon as you are gonna live in my heart Forever.
