Here's a translation of the letter:
"Hello, this is Shinhwa's Andy.
"2022 will mark the 24th year since I met our Shinhwa Changjo as a member of the group Shinhwa. Throughout the years, there have been various events, but I am only the person I am today thanks to the endless love and support that you all gave to me. I sincerely thank you for that.
"Today, I am here to deliver news that I wanted you all to hear from me first. I have found someone with whom I want to spend the rest of my life. This person makes me smile when I am facing hardship, and this person cherishes me so much. So from now on, I plan to live a life of togetherness, rather than one living alone. I hope that you will please congratulate me on my new beginning in life, and look upon us with warm gazes. I intend to show you a good side of me unchangingly as a member of Shinhwa."
