I know it means a lot to you and us. It’s been 12 years since we started to promote under this name that makes my heart flutter when I hear it. It’s all thanks to the love and support of many people. There hasn’t been a single moment that I want to go back to because I’ve been living with so much excitement and anticipation, and I know I’ll continue to live that way. Today of all days! Shall we remember the past days that made today the most precious? I love you so much. Key.”
