How to write a K-pop fan mail letter in Korean

Why write a fan mail?

▶ You have a crush on a KPOP idol.
▶ You are so deeply moved by their work and want them to know that.
▶ Your life has changed so much (for the better) and you want to express your gratitude.
▶ You want them to know that you exist.
▶ You want them to know that there are people like you who love and care for them.
▶ You think about them 24/7 and just can’t get them out of your head.

But whatever the reason is, KPOP idols feed off their fans’ love and support. Think about it – whenever they win an award, they always express their gratitude to their fans. They exist because of you. So not only is it to make you feel better, it is actually one of the best ways to keep them
motivated and energized. It is something they need the most when they are down, because in reality, they are just like us. Sending them a fan mail full of love and support is like giving them a hug.

Word of advice

▶ Be polite. They are human beings who deserve respect just like you.
▶ Don’t be too polite or too formal. They want a friend and a supporter who can feel comfortable hanging out with.
▶ Don’t be a creepy stalker. This doesn’t need to be explained.
▶ Don’t expect a reply. They get hundreds of fan letters every day.
▶ But don’t assume they all go straight to the trash. They, or someone close to them (e.g., their manager or staff members will take the time to read them).
▶ Don’t be afraid of grammatical errors. Even if your Korean is not perfect, it’s the thought and
effort that count. They are not your Korean
language teachers. Even if you make some errors, they can still feel what you are trying to say.

▶ Do decorate your letters, if you want to.
▶ Do keep it short and interesting.
▶ Do use neat handwriting, but bad handwriting is better than a typed letter.
▶ Do have it proofread. Best if you have a Korean friend around.
▶ Do check with your local post office to make sure how many stamps to put on the envelope.

How to compose your letter

▶Introduce yourself

They want to know you as much as you do. Talk about your name, where your home town is, your age and other fun bits of information such as your blood type and nickname.

▶Talk about why you like them so much

This is the part your idol looks forward to reading the most! Show them your love and support.

▶Talk about what they mean to you

Do they give you an inspiration? Did they change your life?

▶Say thank you

Express your gratitude.

▶Closing remarks

Wrap up the letter and include a wish/request if you want.

Labeling the envelope

English Version Sample

Korean Version Sample

how to write a k-pop fan mail letter in Korean - labeling envelope in korean

While both English and Korean versions are acceptable, We’d recommend the Korean version as the Korean post office employees/mail carriers will find it easier to understand. Make sure, however, that you write SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA in English, so that your country’s post office knows where it’s going.

*앞 means To/Attn. Add it to the receiver’s name (e.g., 씨엘 (CL) 앞)
**우) means postal code (short for 우편번호).

Where to send them
* The company address are subject to change, so make sure to do your own due diligence and check if the address you have is up-to-date.
