Hello, this is Rowoon.
Choosing the right words to begin with has been on my mind a lot.
Honestly, it feels a bit nerve-wracking to write after such a long time.
During my recent schedule and as I took on new challenges, I’ve grown stricter with myself.
I’ve also felt frustration in not being able to address misunderstandings, big or small, as they arose. I kept hoping that one day my true intentions would be understood, and I’d be immersed in my immediate tasks.
Of course, I realize that I may face criticism alongside the interest and support I’ve received, but I suppose I’m a bit sensitive about it.
There were times when I should have mustered the courage to address misunderstandings, but instead, I found myself constantly evading them. To any fans who may have been hurt or disappointed by my complacency, I offer my heartfelt apologies.
If you found my changes unfamiliar and felt my withdrawal, I understand your disappointment. I genuinely apologize.
I approached every scheduled activity in the past seven years with a heart full of gratitude for each cherished memory.
As I write this letter, reflecting on my life, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. This is all thanks to each and every one of you.
Now, at 27, I’m eager to embrace new challenges in the coming year.
I wasn’t quite sure how to begin or express this, but I want to gather the courage to share that I’m ready to embrace a new challenge.
Please keep an eye on Kim Seok Woo, the 27-year-old, as he strives to lead a life of responsibility.
I will remain true to the person everyone remembers.
I appreciate each and every one of you.
Your affectionate support means the world to me, and I would be grateful if you continue to watch over me.
