An Open Letter to Kim Saeun

First of all, I am just a fan whose existence will probably remain unknown to Sungmin and the rest of Super Junior. I don’t even live in South Korea and haven’t even gone there.
But I am a fan who loves Sungmin dearly, who believes that he deserves all the happiness in the world because he is our Lee Sungmin, the sweet, quiet and charming pumpkin of the group.

And if his happiness is you, then so be it.

Just please promise us one thing: that you will never hurt him. Please don’t go on interviews saying that being on a relationship with Sungmin is a burden because to him, being with you is the best thing that has ever happened.

In the future, please don’t reveal anything without his consent. If you have something to publicize, please don’t make your company deny it when it’s actually the truth. Because doing that makes us feel like it’s only Sungmin who’s facing the consequences of this revelation. Please always support his decisions. If he wants to keep it a secret, let it be. He’s a very private person, and he wants to do things his way, so please respect that.

I know after marriage, he’ll have bigger responsibilities as your husband but from time to time, let him go back to us. Let him be with his brothers even just for a meal. Let him talk to us. Let him tell us that he loves us, despite all of us knowing that it isn’t 100% true anymore. Let him be the Super Junior Sungmin who keeps on doing aegyo, who keeps on rolling around in a pumpkin costume.

He fought for you, hard. He fought for you because obviously, he loves you very much. And I hope you’ll love him back the same way he does. Although you probably know him better than us, I wish you’ll get to know him better once you’ve entered a new phase in your lives.

The angered hearts are constantly fueled by the news right now. Sungmin must be in a very difficult position. Many want him out of the group, and while I cannot blame them, I just want to make sure that our pumpkin’s fine. During this time, please stay by his side. Never leave him because as far as I believe, Sungmin never wants to be alone. He doesn’t like being left behind. He doesn’t like the feeling of being abandoned. Please hug him tight and comfort him and tell him that everything’s going to be okay. Because everything will be okay. Just give us all time, and we will all come back and find forgiveness and acceptance in our hearts.

And by then, maybe we can all wish you both the happiness.

But today, when it still hurts, please be patient with us. Whatever you hear, endure it for the sake of Sungmin. Please don’t get mad at him for having fans like us, who just wish to protect him. After all, we have been by his side long enough too.

Take care of Lee Sungmin, please.
