“All of a sudden, it’s been 16 whole years since I debuted. My fans who have been with me all this time, you’ve also grown into beautiful women, or even into respectable mothers to your own children… I also hope to become a respectable husband and man, as the head of a new family. She has been protecting me by my side indefinitely, whether I was happy or facing difficulties, and has moved me through many things, all this time.”

“Now that our faith and love have grown, [we’ve] decided to form a bond.”

“The wedding and the time will be quiet and pious, since it is a time of unrest and economic difficulty for the country. As a result, I ask that you understand that we cannot tell you [about the ceremony].”

“I am very thankful for your love I received over the past 16 years. From here on, I will do my best to show you a good side of me as a great singer and actor, with more responsibility and humility…”

Rain ended the letter with a nod to his new track titled, “The Best Gift.” Rain released the track on January 15, after his three-year hiatus. According to Hello Kpop, the song is about a man’s engagement to his love.

“…She is the best present for me.”
