I’m really thankful… Oppa doesn’t just make people happy, but he’s a person who moves people’s hearts.
T.O.P: People are never as foolish, simple and miserable as when they’re contemplating/doing something extreme.
While another fan compliments T.O.P for his actions:
Fan 3: I want to resemble T.O.P in the way you look at things and your sensitivity. You’re really special and have something extraordinary. I want to become a beautiful person like T.O.P.
