Today’s heartwarming letter in our Dear Oppa series was written by Suryasnata Bagchi from India to SUGA from BTS. Read their letter below.
Min Yoongi. This name has so many emotions. At least for me. When I first saw him in MVs, I imagined a Yoongi who was actually different from the Yoongi we know. But he has always been my source of inspiration and energy. From his struggle before becoming an idol, his training with his shoulder injury, learning the guitar and the next day playing like a pro. Although he didn’t realize it, all of his actions led him on the right path. I’ve been learning guitar since I was 10 but there were also a lot of obstacles. I have always been unlucky. So during lockdown, I tried to learn guitar on my own, and somehow I can play guitar as well. But I always had one regret. I can’t strum because I couldn’t learn the chords. That day I was watching a video of SUGA playing Dynamite and Eight on guitar. He looked happy and full of energy when he was playing Dynamite. It gave me so much inspiration and even a reason to start over. I want to become a better version of myself and do what I want to do. I have decided that after my exams are over, I will train very hard. BTS, if you come to India on your world tour, I will be very happy. That’s all. Thank you SUGA, for all you gave me. From inspiration to energy, happiness and a reason to start over. I purple you.
