Hello. It’s Yoo Yeon Seok.
Once again, I get to write a short letter to you (fans) for this Fan Meeting. This is the only way that I can repay and reply to all of you fans who have written me letters in the past.
When you all hold this letter in your hands and are reading it, I suspect that the fan meeting would be over and you all would be returning home in the evening. How was today? Did you enjoy yourselves? ^^
As this fan meeting is to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of my debut, and I think it will be memorable as a more meaningful and joyful occasion because of it.
To be honest, I completely forgot that it was my 15 year anniversary, and I just concentrated on filming my drama, until one day a fan congratulated me on my 15 year debut anniversary. Because of that I felt a strange sense of responsibility. At the filming location, I felt always a sense of newness, unfamiliarity and difficulty. Because of this, I had forgotten that it had been such a long time since my debut.
But now I go to the shoots, and find that my juniors increase one by one, and the days in which I get called a senior at these shoots become more and more frequent. And because of this I feel a greater sense of responsibility and burden that I have to carry as an actor.
I felt once again, that the reason that I could continue on as an actor like this, was due to the unconditional love and support from all of you fans. Thoughts of you fans who steadfastly loved me came to mind. Although there were times when I showed you guys an unsatisfactory side of me, you all send such words of encouragement that it gave me so much strength to continue.
If I look back, it could be said that 15 years is a long time, but if you look at my future as an actor, you could also think that it’s not such a long time in that perspective.
Please continue to send love to me and have great expectations for me as I continue into the future. In return, I will continue my best efforts to be that actor that through the long term that you follow my career, continues to show something new and different.
Once again, I thank you for your precious steps in coming here.
I love you ❤
The actor who loves all of you
Yoo Yeon Seok
