“Hello… It’s a cold winter, but I trust you’re all healthy?
This is Jung Ji Hoon.
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…
‘She is the best present for me.’
Jung Ji Hoon.”
