Love letter was translated by Momo:
August 2007.
As I looked up at the sky after arriving at Haneda airport around 12 pm,
Tokyo's sky was clear and transparent just like your hearts welcoming me.

And August 2004.
On the day of the first shooting of DJG, I remember that the sky was just as beautiful as today.
As summer, autumn, cold winter and spring passed, I had to let go of Jang-Geum reluctantly.
At that time, I thought it was the last goodbye.
However, I'm standing here in front of you along with Jang-Geum now.
It's all thanks to you.
I'm so touched, happy and grateful.

I still can't forget each of your welcoming stares when I first came here for DJG.
The look of old ladies who came from far.
The look of children who came with their mothers.
The look of fathers who came despite their work.
Your sincerity and warmth makes me look back upon myself and bow my head.

Although I, Lee Young-Ae, still have a long way to go,
I will never forget the lessons I learned through you and Jang-Geum,
and use them as an important guidance for my life.

I hope that the time we spent together today, and the time we spent with DJG
will remain as a warm memory for a long long time.
Thank you everyone. Thank you very much.
