Hi Jimin. It is cringey to write a letter to you like this but I’m going to write it anyway so please understand.
We came to Seoul as a trainee when we didn’t know anything right? We put on our uniforms, went to the same school, ate meals together, went practicing, came to the dorms together and chatted until late at night. After 6 years, you have become a best friend who can never be replaced.
Before debut, you were worried once before making a debut. I had a meeting with the agency while you were worried and I carefully recommended you to the company and asked “How would it be to have Jimin in the team? Then also added, “I have thought for a long time and Jimin is the only person who would laugh and cry with me whenever I am happy or sad. I want to be with my friend for a long time and be together.” I was happy to tell them what I thought about you.
I am so happy to be in the same team as you and that I can make good memories with you…Also, I am sorry for the fact that I always get everything from you.
Until now, you cry with me when I’m crying in the bathroom having bad times, come out at night and laugh with me, try to understand, and listen to my concerns. Thank you for loving a friend who is not good enough.
Let’s be happy forever!
Love you my friendV
