Thank you very much for giving me this award.

These days I have been traveling and relaxing. I have done a lot that I haven’t done in the past. I am doing good, I have been experiencing new things lately, and I also made good new memories.

Looking back, there are so many memories and moment I never had the chance to go through. Now that I look back, I think all of it is special. Until now, all of you my fans have been giving me so much love and the public in general who also supported me.

Soon, I will be back so please wait for me. Thank you so much.

Also thank you to Leeteuk Hyung who received this letter on my behalf. Everybody, happy new year and take care of your heart in this cold weather.

Jonghyun hyung must be looking down from the heavens right now… I just want to say I am sorry.

I am also thankful… also, Onew hyung, Key hyung, Minho hyung, Jinhee hyung thank you so much.

God and my parents… thank you so much.”
