While the family members of most Korean celebrities choose to be more private about their lives, that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been some hilarious moments between celebrities and their family members. Here’s a list of some Korean celebrities who received some hilarious letters or messages from their family members.
1. Jin (BTS)
Jin’s heartwarming relationship with his brother is quite well known, as he was the MC for his brother’s wedding!
Back in 2007, Jin attended a camp in Australia that was meant to help people improve their English. While Jin was away, his brother decided to send him a letter.
I see you have kept your calm among kids who look older than me. I was kinda jealous at first because I didn’t like that you went to place alone that I’ve never been but I laughed when you told me all your friends left you while you were looking up words in your phone dictionary.
Here it is so hot. I sweat even when the air conditioner is on. Our parents are well, it’s only me that feels like dying. I study hard since because I have the title of high school second grade which I didn’t ask for.
My biggest worry is that you’ll get beaten up. Don’t ever get beaten up, show them the power of the Koreans. I don’t expect too much of you studying lol. Don’t get beaten up, grow your strength, and return to Korea because your cool brother’s fists are waiting for you.
p.s: Don’t ever tell Mom you got this mail. I’m gonna get in so much trouble if Mom finds out that I was on a computer.
— Jin’s older brother
2. Jeongyeon (TWICE)
Jeongyeon’s sister is actress Gong Seung Yeon, and they are one of the most well-known siblings in the Korean entertainment industry.
Gong Seung Yeon once uploaded their cute exchange with each other when she called Jeongyeon to come to take care of a bug. Gong Seung Yeon pleaded to Jeongyeon by saying, “Please. It’s alive. Jeong Yeon. Please come. And take care of it.” Jeongyeon ended up replying with a simple, “I’m coming”, to which Seung Yeon said, “okay”.
However, once Jeongyeon arrived, she struggled quite a bit when taking care of the bug.

While Lee Kwang Soo might not be an idol, he did once receive a unique letter from his mother. During an episode of Running Man, Lee Kwang Soo received an embarrassing letter from his mother that spoke on his love life. This was also before Lee Kwang Soo was dating Lee Sun Bin.
Dear my son who falls in love quickly.
Dear my hopelessly romantic son, Kwang Soo. Are you doing well? It’s been cold these days. I wonder who you fell in love with there. You’ve been always full of love.
I’m so proud that you’re hopelessly romantic. I love you, my son. From mom
