"Hello, I'm singer John Park.
It feels like yesterday when I debuted at the age of 23, but it's already been 12 years.
I think [my debut] would have been impossible if it weren't for my fans' support and love.
I had good news that I wanted to tell the fans who have been with me for a long time, so I began writing here.
There is a precious person whom I got to know around this time last year, who has been a source of strength for me.
With this person who taught me what happiness is, I promised a future together and I am currently preparing for my wedding with a nervous and fluttering heart.
You were probably surprised by the sudden news, but I am thinking you will bless my new beginning just as you've always supported me with an affectionate heart.
I'm always thankful for you.
I'll live happily!"
