Back in the 90s, Eun Ji Won was the leader of one of the most popular groups in Korea - Sechskies.
While he had the fame and popularity, he also had to deal with the same thing idols today have to deal with - sasaeng fans. However, Eun Ji Won had a different way of handling the situation than everyone else.
In an old letter, Eun Ji Won wrote,
Hey! It's me, Ji Won...
I have something to say to you guys. I am bad at writing, but I cut down on my sleep and took a pen up. I know you are disappointed with me for some things! So I want to say... Every time I came back home from my schedule, you greeted me always in front of my house. But I just go inside...
It's not that you guys are tiresome, or that I hate you. If I had everything my way, I want to talk and hang out with you all night, but you guys know better than I do that I can't do that, right? So I hope you understand me a little.
When I see you waiting in front of my house, I think, ah~ there are people who care about me and love me this much, and that makes me happy. But if you really do like me, I hope you understand at least a little that I cannot meet with you personally.
My mother knows this, but sometimes, there are nights I can't sleep because I think of you guys. I'm worried about you. Aren't you cold? What if you guys get hungry? Where do you sleep? No matter how tired I am, I can't sleep when I get these thoughts.
So please try to understand me and forgive me! Don't think, 'I'm okay'. I really am worried about you guys, so go home, and spend time with your parents. If you do that, don't you think your parents would like us [Sechskies] more, too?
Also! My cold actions! If you don't understand me, then who will, right?
Lastly, I love you guys
What do you think about how he handled his saseng situation?
