I hope you know whether the climate is peaceful in the autumn wind.
Yesterday's appeal was well received.
The murder case of Park Bong-dal and the serial killings of the savages are mourning.
But he answered my call and resolved the cases well.
Your brilliance deserves to be cherished.
Even though you were entangled in a strong Noron and stranded by this incident,
A moment of injustice will soon pass, so don't flirt easily.
In this case, it is considered that there will be a bigger conspiracy centered on the Jeokseong Gaksi Helmet Flower Farm.
I hope that you will go down to the aptitude and solve this case urgently.
Let them know that I am not ignoring the grim stories of the world.
And as soon as you see this letter, shred it and burn it.
