Hello, this is Kim Dong Jun, he wrote. I am first of all grateful to Mr. Shin Joo Hak and the rest of the Star Empire staff for giving an immature kid from Busan the chance to debut. Now I have a new family with which to begin my new journey and new dreams. I call them my new family, but I am actually working with Mr. Hwang Jung Moon, who watched over me for over 10 years starting from my trainee days and helped me grow up with his warm and honest advice, who from being like a dependable older brother is now a company president.
