The singer, actor, songwriter and member of the pop duo TVXQ, Max Changmin has penned down an emotional letter of proclamation of his marriage plans to his girlfriend on June 12, 2020 that has led to a great storm of tweets and messages pouring in from fans around the world.
On June 12, he posted a heartfelt letter announcing his marriage personally to all his fans stating that as nervous and even apologetic as he might be feeling to reveal this, he still feels that it is his duty to share news of this major event in his life personally to them.
Thanking his group member Yunho and all the fans that have been supporting him all these years, his letter reads as follows:
“There is something I want to tell fans myself, so I am taking the courage to write this letter. It is not something I can say easily, so I am very nervous right now as I write each word.On one hand, my heart feels heavy and apologetic thinking that my sudden news will shock and maybe upset some fans who always support me with great affection. However, I felt that it is my duty to share news of a major event in my life through my own words rather than through the words of others.
Approximately 17 years have passed since I debuted as a singer. Through that time, a high school student who was naive and imperfect at everything has now reached my mid-30s. I have spent almost half of my life as a TVXQ member. Looking back, there was a time swept up in uncertainty when Yunho and I along with fans did not know what would become of TVXQ, but fans protected TVXQ, and because you gave us great love, we have been able to grow until this point. Thank you so much.
As you are aware due to a news report from a while ago, there is a woman I am currently dating. We have had a good relationship with trust and faith in one another, and naturally, I decided that I want to continue my life together with this person, so we made the decision to have our wedding in September around the time when the heat will cool down. Through this letter, I would like to express my gratitude once again to Yunho-hyung, who has supported my decision and is happy for me, and the company staff who gave their heartfelt advice.
I know this path has a bigger responsibility than the path I’ve walked on until now. That’s why I will do my best now in every moment and the task that I was given even more properly. I will be head of a household and TVXQ’s Changmin who can repay more, the people who have given me their support and encouragement.
Actually it already feels like it’s already the hot summer season, but still, I think that a lot of things in the world have been frozen nowadays. Everyone, please keep in mind your body and mental health, and thank you sincerely for reading this long letter.”
Later on, SM also released an official statement confirming and asking for the fans’ blessings and support for the TVXQ member and his soon-to-begin marriage life. The statement said,
“TVXQ’s Changmin will be getting married to his girlfriend on September 5. In consideration of the non-celebrity bride and both families, details of the wedding including the exact location and time will all be private, so we ask for the generous understanding of fans and reporters.” The statement added, “Changmin will continue to show great activities as a TVXQ member and artiste. We ask for many blessings to be sent to Changmin, who has a new start of his life ahead of him.”
Desi fans’ overjoyed and proud responses to Changmin’s marriage has shown the strength of a healthy fan-idol relationship as Changmin trended worldwide and in India 🙂
Congratulations to Changmin and his fiancé, may god bless this beautiful couple with love, joy and happiness ♥️
