J-Hope addressed Yunho as his Gwangju “sunbae” and expressed his respect for him.

Hello, this is BTS’s J-Hope. I heard you’re serving in the military. As your Gwangju ‘hoobae’, I’ve grown up looking up to you, and I still look up to you now.

— J-Hope

J-Hope even asked Yunho to grab a bite to eat sometime once he got out and wished him the best of days.

On the other hand, the focus of V’s letter was a possible collaboration between BTS and TVXQ one day.

I hope BTS and TVXQ’s activities can overlap one day! BTS loves TVXQ.

— V

And upon reading the old letters, Yunho didn’t fail to mention that BTS is now on a whole different level compared to when they wrote these letters.

But now, you guys are top world stars.

— Yunho

Yunho enlisted in the military in 2015 and was discharged in 2017.

While BTS are still their humble selves to this day, it’s true that their success has reached new heights since then!
