I was always sorry to my fans because all I could tell you for so long was to wait. I was so happy to be able to stand on stage and see you again. It was a stage that I was really, really thankful for!Good luck to Kaeun.
I'm so thankful that I don't remember how to put it into words. They were happy moments for me, but you must have had times where you were hurt while you supported me.
I think that you had harder times than I did while filming. Thank you so much for believing in me and supporting me untilt he end.
You can't imagine how every single one of your words mean to me. Thank you so much for supporting me. I'll continue to work hard without giving up!
You became my fans, so I'll work hard to be Kaeun that you can be proud of.
Thank you so much and I love you.
