“To my loving husband!

It’s already been 20 years since I met you as a young and immature 24-year-old, and you went from my ‘Oppa’ to Hyun Woo’s dad after I gave birth to Hyun Woo.

Though we used to fight a lot, these days, we’re busy making sure the other is taking their medicine instead of fighting. You are my best friend for life, protecting us from the perilous world, coming running whenever I call and knowing so much about me.

They say there’s no road to happiness, that the road itself is happiness. As long as our family stays on that road and looks straight on as we go forward, our life will be shining and beautiful. Please keep sharing with me your unchanging friendship. I love you! “
