Hello, this is Woo Do Hwan. I’m saying goodbye to you as I'm carrying out my final activity before my military enlistment. I’m very appreciative of all the letters and gifts from all of you. I’m reading, wearing, and displaying each one, and it made me realize once more that I’m receiving so much love. Because of that, it feels more real to me now. Thanks to your support and love for me, and because you were there for me and watching over me whenever I was having a hard time, I was able to spend my twenties very happily. I would like to thank you once again, and I’ll return healthily, so I hope all of you will also always be healthy and happy."
