EXO's Xiumin shared his thoughts on materialistic gifts he receives from the fans.
On February 6th, Xiumin shared a lengthy message on EXO's official fan club, EXO-L's website. In the message he shared, his thoughtful gesture and the love he has for his fans can be felt strongly. In case the fans are saddened by his statement, he added the sincere explanation in why he is okay with not receiving gifts from the fans anymore. His message reads:
"Cough! Cough! My EXO-L who is the strongest in the galaxy~
It's been a long time since I greeted thee~ This is Xiumin from EXO~ hahaha;;
Sorry… I was trying too hard to greet you all in a unique way…;;
(I'm not a weirdo.)
I'll think of a better greeting next time!! Lol
My EXO-L, are you guys doing well?
Are you curious about how I'm doing?!
I'm diligently preparing for something nowadays.
Of course, that something is for you~
Since you haven't seen me around, you must've been thinking I was just resting, right?
For those of you who thought that, I want to appeal "Absolutely NOT!"
You are probably always curious and frustrated about what we are doing.
Why are we not telling you?
The reason being!! …because it's not fun if we tell you in advance.
It's kind of mean saying it like this but this is all a strategy…
Everyone's probably aware of it already but just think of it as a childish game;;
It makes us excited when you are anticipating… lol
Anyways! 2018 will be busier than the last year!!
This is all I can say at the moment~
This is getting a bit too long~
I did get a lot chattier than before! Agreed? Lol
It's a proof that the history and memories between me and EXO-L has been building up strongly all these years.
It's way more comfortable to chat, compare to how I was when I just debuted.
Thanks for making me like this ❤
Please take care of me in the future as well, galaxy-strongest EXO-L ^^
This might be really sudden and I'm really, really sorry to say it but I wanted to post this message
because there's a message I want to convey to you all.
All the gifts you are sending me!
I'm so grateful for every single one of them and using them well in my daily life.
If I had the ability, I'd receive all of them into my arms, thinking it is your sincere hearts!
But.. ah.. what do we do? There's not much place left at my house )':
If I quit beating around the bush and go straight to the point!
I'm going to accept just your love... no, I want to accept just your love.
There's not a better gift than your interest and affection for me.
Rather than materialistic gifts, I am greedy for the consistent love!!
So selfish of me, right? Lol;;
I've been thinking of how I can say this without hurting your feelings.
After much, much pondering, I decided!
If it's EXO-L, it would be the best if I just honestly say what's in my heart.
Since I wrote this message based on that decision, it kind of flew out like this.
If there's anyone who's upset at my honest feelings or even got your feelings hurt,
I'm so sorry! )':
Since the very beginning, my biggest homework is to pay EXO-L back on all the love you've shown me
and it's the harder than I thought…
Showing my best self is an obvious thing and now I just want to do well in everything I do.
Even if by small steps, I will show you my improvements!!
I'll take care of myself so I can be even cooler too ^^
I'm 29 years old already!!
Since this is the ending of my 20's, I'm going to pour out everything I have~
You guys better be ready for this! LOL
You may faint at my powerful energy, so be sure to take care of your health~~ lol;;
The backbone of EXO, our EXO-L!! You are always helping me see only the good things,
hear only the great things, and experience only the best things all around.
Let's spend this 2018 not worrying about anything else but to be blissful in our time together~
Then, see you soon~ (I won't make you wait for a long time.)
I love you ❤"
