Hello. It’s Jin.
Clap clap clap Everyone it’s my birthday today.
I’m so happy to be celebrating my birthday.
I’m happy that it’s my birthday but I’m even more happy to see ARMYs celebrate and enjoy doing something together on Twitter, cafe, and more. ARMYs’ happiness is my greatest happiness.
Also, we recently won the grand award and the popularity award!
I’m very very happy about the grand award but I really really love the popularity award that we won thanks to our ARMY❤
Thank you so so much, ARMY!
Oh… and I always prepared something for everyone to enjoy but I’m sad that I wasn’t able to prepare anything this year ㅠ.ㅠ
I’ll work harder to always show you good image and good contents. I love you❤
At the end of the letter, he cutely added a few phrases in English specifically for international ARMYs!
