Currently, there is a translated letter of Bigbang’s leader Kwon Jiyong circulating around the internet which was supposedly a letter from his mother. After recently sharing the story between him and his mother on Strong Heart, Jiyong’s mother has sent a reply to his son in a form of a letter.

Jiyong’s mom letter to Jiyong:

My dear son, recently seeing you being so tired over so many things, I don’t feel good. It hurts me.

To become a singer, You are in the “Entertainment Industry” for almost 10years. But upon hearing you say that, you didn’t do anything great about and breakdown/feel sad, it hurts me you know? Sometimes seeing you like that, makes me wanna cry but im afraid that if I were to cry, you’ll give up everything. So I controlled my tears…

In my eyes, you’re my cute and lovable son. Whenever I heard people saying bad things about you, I’ll use my eyes to look/treat at them coldly but the this isn’t the purpose of my letter. I felt something that I had never felt before so I decided to tell you now.

When i saw you being welcomed and loved by the crowd and felt happy/bliss, mummy feel that being a idol is only a moment of “being proud career”.
But I still feel that it’s right for you to have this career but there are many people out there. All with different thinking and mindset. You will have to keep creating new ideas to satisfy everyone, you’re sure of this more than anyone else right?

And when you debut, you’re debuting with a title of “The Best Idol Group”. And that is also why people are focusing more on Big Bang. That is for sure.
But as a Leader of Big Bang, a leader that many anticipate about, wearing “Skimpy clothings” this will hurt so many people/fans out there!

Because I know if people are disappointed with you, their way of showing will definitely be a kind of hurt to you. But you’re such a lovable kid and if you’re being hurt by what others said, mom will be worried for you and unable to sleep.

But when things like thar happened, you’re always showing a smile on your face, being so cheerful. Then I think, that’s right, who’s son is that? Such mistakes in certain levels, can be revived and remedy. So whenever, mom see articles and things that are not truth on the net, I really hated them alot.

But come to think about it, you’re a idol and a very famous one. That could be why people are focusing and caring towards you. But I didn’t know that “caring” can become a bad thing, a bad thing that many haters out there are cursing you, saying bad comments about you to hurt you.

At that point of time. I was thinking.. “is it because others really hate you alot?” but I keep thinking.. “Why are there even people hating such a lovable child like that?” my dear son, you’re now grown up, you’re already at a age of knowing where’s and what your mistakes are.

This is Korea. And you’re a idol. That is why I think that many things have a certain levels to it. With your personality, there are people loving you it’s a “natural thing”. But from my point of view, people are saying/commenting you like that is because you had brought out a “Trend”. A trend even with “Skimpy clothings”, you worn it out like a Trend. And that us why you “entice” others’s interest, that is for sure. Due to this, I think that those who are commenting/reflecting about you are also not wrong.

Hearing all these from me, you might think that I’m “attracting attention” from you and asking you for a “sorry”. You might think that your mom betrayed you. If you think this way, now listen, that is because “I’m your mom”. Now remember this in your heart. “I’m your mom!”

So when you shoutout to the world, look at my first page of the letter, it’s your story. I feel that you’ve already reflected on yourself and you could already have your own thinking. But not long ago, during the rehearsals, your fashion stirred up a series of comments again..
Although its normal at home for us, but you’re facing a camera, a camera that the rest of the people in Korea, are seeing. But you did the same thing, same problem again. It hurts me, you know?

In my memories, you’re a perfect child. No matter what you do, it’s very detailed. But nowadays, I feel that you have “ignored” all these comments about those haters and only care about those fans that love and supported you and slowly relax yourself.

About the plagiarism and Shine A Light Concert, I know that you have treasured and focused on them, so you felt very hurt but there is a song, a lyrics that goes: “There is always up and downs.” So I believe that my son is not that kind of person that will plagiarize other people’s songs. Because he isn’t that bad boy. But for those who don’t understand my son, will definitely misunderstand. So I hoped that no matter what you do in the future, please be more careful. And don’t be sad and troubled by things like these anymore.

But to my surprise, we saw your Concert on the chart and many others are saying, I was shocked as well. You too, am I right? My boy, who is in the wrong in certain way was shocked too isn’t it?

When you’re holding your own concert, keep in mind that there are young fans too. So I think that don’t always go by your feel for the performance, give a little attention to those fans, alright?
When you just debuted, i think that the fans that you attracted are proud of you and you’re leading them. But I think that now, you are letting your fans lead you. I’m upset. You should be a person that shouldn’t be letting others lead you. Don’t keep expecting love and support from your fans. You must be energized and grow up alright my son? Mom will be supporting you no matter what happens! I’ll be at your back saying: ” Hwaiting, my son!”

Jiyong ah,
Mom will always believe you and love you. I hoped that you’ll become a humble person and will accept those comments by people out there. To you, it’s still a long way and we are constantly seeing you grow isn’t it?
Your mom will be expecting what’s coming out from you more than any of your fan that loved you out there! Don’t ever forget this.
Jiyong ah, in the future there might be more tiring days, bad days coming.. But mom can’t help you anymore. I believe that you are a lively and nice child, so I’m passing my role and this letter to you. I know that you might hated me for it, hated me for giving you such a burden, but for you to succeed, I’ll accept it if you were to hated me for it.

For a world like this, you can have the choice to ignore but remember this: “Ignorance, is also a another way of love.”

Jiyong, my son, Hwaiting! Don’t forget that your mom are always supporting you! Giving you moral support! Don’t stop and you must work harder!! I love you, my dear son. – Jiyong’s mom to Jiyong.

    Hello there. To the author of this article/admins of the site, do you mind taking this post down? Angela has been receiving bashing and harassment from netizens and VIPs because she translated the letter. Just looking at the comments on this article (the bottom few ones), you should know what I mean. To prevent anymore troubles because of the translation, please kindly delete this post. I thank you in advance.

    And to the readers, THIS IS NOT A LETTER THAT ANGELA MADE UP. She translated the letter from Chinese (it was uploaded on a site, translated in Chinese) so all Angela did was to put it in English. If this letter is fake, you guys should be looking for the person who uploaded the Chinese version, not bashing Angela for it. She translated the letter because people were curious about it, and now others bash her for doing so. If that’s the case I don’t think anyone wants to do anymore translation work if this is the kind of thanks they get in return.

    And how do I know Angela’s being bashed? Because she’s my friend. And before you guys say I’m siding with her because she’s my friend, I read the actual Chinese version letter.

    CTSL_BB I would like it if in the future you comment directly to me like a grown woman would, but since you haven’t, I’ll point out some facts. While I am sorry she is being bashed, more than one sight led the translations to her page. She may have not been the first to post it, but she translated and posted it on a public site, in a public place, with credits published to her.
    Yes, the bashing is unfair, but you have to understand that VIPS are angry. There are some things that should not be translated and released in public forums or the people who put them in view where it cost the most attention (her page) regardless of it she made it or not.

    “If this letter is fake, you guys should be looking for the person who uploaded the Chinese version, not bashing Angela for it.

    People generally post translations of things like talk shows, music lyrics, stuff the artist wouldn’t mind having out there. If this was a real letter from GD’s Mom, she should’ve used some sense and thought, hmmm, my name is credited to this. If anyone sees this, they’ll think it’s me or I had a hand in it. Which she did. She should be more careful about what she translates and if it is something like this, she should do it in a private message or email, not on twitter. Only one page knew about it and that was a forum that not too many people see. All the blogs that picked up on this story only picked up on it after she published it to twitter. So sorry if she was bashed, but she should think before she posts publicly.

    I’m agree to smiley. This letter seems so personal and should not been publicly published…
