The actress shared a mysterious photo of rubble and other random bits, that left the interpretation up to her followers.

The fresh spring that you all experienced was like an painful winter for me. It was a severely long night.

I wonder why the summer that felt like it’d last forever now seems like a stagnant winter to me. I have decided to work on melting the ice that has covered my heart.

The winter I experienced wasn’t something I created for myself, but I had to fight and endure it on my own. I started meeting people and began my overdue work. Sometimes, the wind would blow creating cracks, but I was grateful that it was endurable.

I’m sure that it’ll be difficult to remind myself of the past seasons, but I won’t be able to forget the scenes in my mind. That day’s weather, the smells, the activities…I got emotional trying to bury the memories because I haven’t healed. ‘Should I just quietly support you,’ is a thought that I once had. A human’s heart is selfish though, and every time I had those thoughts, the melting ice on my heart would freeze itself right back up.

I hated myself for screwing up my own seasons. I should have worked harder to fight through it, I should have done a better job pretending like nothing happened…the more I thought in this way, however, the more cunning I became. I started to feel the season you were going through.

The fierce winter wasn’t beautiful, but even in the midst of such coldness, I was able to give out a strong fragrance. I was too pitiful to crumble in this way. I felt sorry to those who shared their sunlight with me during my winter season.

I have no reason to wallow in my winter anymore. I will break the icy road. If I can’t melt it, I will break it.

In the midst of the never ending winter nights, I was able to catch a glimpse of sunlight. As I looked around, the ice that had once melted had hardened as the sharp wind blew its course. Little flower buds will soon make their appearance for the upcoming spring.

I know that there are some of you who are still going through a painful winter season. I want you to know that I am here to be that small bit of sunlight during your hard time. I hope that you will live a brilliant life.
