감사하고 사랑합니다♥️ 지금에 안주하면 더 성장할 수 없다는 말씀처럼 항상 초심을 잃지 않고 배우는 사람이 되겠습니다. Thanks and love! Just like the saying 'if we settle now, we will never grow', I will hold on to my focus and keep learning! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ➕To all my wonderful fans! ♥️ You have no idea how happy I was when I woke up this morning! Thank you so much for all your congratulations on my 10th anniversary. After thinking long and hard about how to express ten years worth of gratitude, I ended up writing this letter. =) I hope you like it! Anyway, when I think back to when I was ten years old, shooting 'Korean Ghost Stories'; 'Child, let's go to the green mountain' I remember how exciting the set was and how everything was just so much fun. Now that I have grown up in body and in mind, I realise how much of a lucky person I've been. Just being able to do what I love is fantastic enough, but to be able to do it surrounded by such great people and with the support of such wonderful fans is amazing and makes me so thankful! But I've only just begun! From twenty until I'm thirty or forty, I promise to keep doing my best! I wish nothing but happiness for those of you that love and support me and are with me on this journey! ♥️From now on I will make every effort to become an actress and person that you can be proud of. Anyway, I'll finish here by wishing you all the very best! Be careful of the hot weather and have a great day! ♥️ 2018.8.7 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ➕致我亲爱的粉丝们 早上起来睁开眼睛,不知道我有多么的幸福!
