Writing this letter has been the hardest. How can I possibly summarise the love and admiration I have for you?
From the very start, it was you that got me drawn into this rabbit hole. I still vividly remember the time I started listening to BTS. It was your face, your voice, your charisma that stood out the most for someone who was just starting to be a fan.
Everyone else knows where they’re supposed to be
But only I walk without purpose
But still, blending in with them is more comfortable
But the more I listened to your words, I came face to face with how much honesty and wisdom you had. With each new song I started to listen to, life felt… better? Suddenly, for the girl who only had music to confide in during a time in her life when everything seemed so bleak, each day started to feel more bearable. Slowly, I tried to be. I tried to fight a little bit more. I tried to love myself more. And it might seem surreal when I say that your music saved my life. But believe me, that is what you have been doing to people, not just me.
I’m just a person
You erode all my sharp edges
You make me
I am writing this on your birthday because I want to thank you for being Kim Namjoon. How lucky am I to have your music in my life, really? Thank you for your smile and music that keeps me fighting everyday.
