First of all, let me apologise! I know I’m not good at editing and I don’t have the same way with words others do but this was important to me. To wish my ultimate bias, who brings me sunshine on even the cloudiest of days, a happy birthday.
Happy birthday to EXO’s happy virus, my sunshine, Park Chanyeol! You’ve had such a fantastic year and I’m so proud of you. Don’t get me wrong - you’ve always been so fantastically talented and passionate about your music, but this year you’ve blossomed and come into your own. It’s been a pleasure to watch you, to stan you everyday, through every achievement. Congratulations.
You’re more to the world than your talents though, and I hope you know that. Your smile brightens up every room you walk into. Heck, if you asked me it lights up the entire world. Through thick and thin you’ve always maintained your infectious cheer and optimism. Even when things are hard and you’re in pain - you smile for other peoples sake. You should know how powerful that smile of yours is and your dumb jokes! If you’re ever struggling to find a reason to smile, remember how often you’re people’s reason to smile. Mister Happy Virus, don’t you know how brightly you shine?
I think that would help you actually, seeing how warm and considerate you are to others - be they your fans, the members or even animals. It’s adorable really, how your heart is even bigger than your giant self. Never once have you ever been less than humbled and grateful for your fans but just know, we’re equally thankful to support you, to love you and to watch you grow. It really is an honour.
Please never, ever stop being your vibrant, cheerful, totally bizarre, endlessly kind, adorable, passionate, talented and completely ridiculous self. Never stop lighting the world up in that way only you can! You bring so much joy, even in places where there was none at all. I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and efforts. In working to achieve your dream you’ve made the world a happier place too.
You know what? I bet next year will be even better for you as well! You’ll continue to develop your skills, to charm fans all over the world, to lift the spirits of anyone who even sees your beautiful face. Guess what else? I’ll still be here, cheering you on, that talented boy who brought my smile back. I believe in you, my vitamin C who shines brighter than any star. You can do anything you put your mind to and I promise to cheer you on the whole way, even if it takes you up to the sky to conquer space!
Happy birthday, I wish you all the best and now and each and every day to come. Thank you, for being you. Thank you for everything. Every moment on stage, every quirk of your lips, every boisterous laugh, every twinkle of your beautiful eyes - everything.
I love you, unconditionally.
P.S. I hope Dara notices you soon.
