Today's heartwarming letter in our Dear Oppa series has been penned by Shruti from India to Stray Kids’ Bangchan. Read her letter below.
Dear Bang Chan,
I still vividly remember the first video that made me a fan of yours. Even though it's the 21st century, talking about periods is not something what many men do, leave alone a male kpop idol. But YOU did. Fearlessly! Not caring about how controversial it might turn out to be. Little did I know that one video would change my life for the better. From being a naive 13 year old teen who left his country and trained hard for 7 years to becoming the leader of one of the most popular 4th Gen groups, you've proved time and again that you're indeed the "best leader". Your genius and talent never ceases to amaze and inspire me. The dedication you have towards your profession, your members and your fans is everything. "Chan's Room" has now become a comfort place for me and I would be lying if I say I do not wait for the weekends for those "big hugs". If I had to name one thing that I learned from you then that would be "kindness". The way you genuinely care for every single individual around you, make them feel comfortable and most importantly put them before yourself, not only shows your big heart but also how compassionate you are as a person. From encouraging us to be proud of the little demon that resides within us to comforting us by saying it's okay to cry and let it out to giving tips on how to deal with stress and anxiety, you've truly been a Guardian angel for us Stays. Honestly, I could go on talking about how much your kindness has given me the strength to endure these hard times, not just me but Stays and every other person who looks up to you. I truly hope that the next time you take a Buzzfeed quiz, the answer to "Do you love yourself?" would be a genuine YES accompanied with that dimpled smile. Sending you lots of warm hugs and hot chocolate. Till the last "STEP OUT"!
