It reads, “Hello Teach, this is second year class three’s dark horse Park Bo Gum. All of a sudden, one month has already passed. Time sure is fast. I don’t know when you’ll read this, but thank you for the past month, even if it was short. Let’s meet again when we get the chance! Stay healthy and happy! I hope Teach’s dreams will come true. Your classes were fun and I could understand everything well!”
Upon reading the letter, the teacher remarks that it is “just as expected from the icon of kindness.” The teacher continues, “Bo Gum was friendly and charming and thanks to him, I became a lot closer with the students. We took many pictures and talked a lot during that happy month I spent as a high school teacher trainee.”
The teacher also expresses a wish to meet the actor again and writes, “Now that you’re a big star, I haven’t been in contact with you but I want to see you again. I’ll believe through this letter that we’ll meet again.”
