Kim Namjoon, better known by his stage name RM (short for Real Me) (formerly known as Rap Monster and Runch Randa), is a rapper-songwriter and record producer under Big Hit Music. He is the leader and a rapper of BTS, also he is notable for his large input in songwriting and production in the discography of the group. BTS has always been a source of strength and confidence for ARMY. Their music, pictures, words, letters, etc. help their fans to be confident and love themselves just as they are. They are at the pinnacle with the help of ARMYs but they helped ARMYs reach their own heights as well. 

Today's heartwarming letter in our Dear Oppa series has been penned by Mercy from South Africa to BTS’ RM. Read her letter below.
