Seungkwan’s letter for Moonbin

On June 5 fans of Moonbin noted that the SEVENTEEN member had left another heartfelt note for his friend. Here’s what it said.

“My Binnie

Bin-ah! I just stopped by for some time. As the day when we finally send you off approaches, I've come to [Fantagio’s] Sky Park, where your fans who love you have been the most. I've been trying my best to take of Sua, your mom, dad, and aunt, but it seems they're the ones taking care of me more. Because of that, I was able to work hard during my schedule. The day before yesterday, I went to Taeyeon noonim's concert which we had planned to attend together. I received a lot of comfort there. And thought a lot about you. She, fortunately? didn't sing your favorite song, 'U R'. Thankfully I didn't end up sobbing in my seat haha. How are you these days? Is there anything you want to eat? I really want to drink beer with you, you miss it too, right? I'm sure you do, you brat. I miss us from back then a lot, I hoped as time went by slowly I’d feel okay but I don't think that's the case. Woongie said so too, that it's better to live life less okay than live life okay without you. I agree with that bit. Please understand me. I'm still too selfish. Look at me, asking you for your understanding. This is all I am. I am kind of scared because who made me shine, aren’t here. The day before yesterday your fans came to the cafe and thanked and comforted me. You have no idea how much I held back tears. They comforted me so warmly. so I have to get it together! I've made up my mind again. I feel like I'll be like this going forward too. I love you so much friend I have to go now. I’m sorry because it feels like I came and complained. See you tomorrow Bin-ah I want to see you soon. Eat well and sleep well. Come to my dreams, when you have time. -Bboo-ya-”
