TWICE‘s Chaeyoung is possibly the most successful Tim Burton fangirl ever!
Chaeyoung recently visited Tim Burton’s “The World of Tim Burton” exhibit in Seoul. The exhibit traveled all around the world, and it last came to Seoul in 2012. This exhibition presents around 520 of Tim Burton’s original artworks, across mediums such as painting, drawing, and photography. Many of the pieces in the exhibit relate to Tim Burton’s films, like Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Alice in Wonderland.
Chaeyoung had a great time at the exhibition and she posted about it on TWICE’s Instagram. She explained that he was the single biggest influence on her own drawing style, and she said she left a letter for him.
Since I was young, when asked to name the person that influenced me the most when drawing, I would often say Tim Burton. So I was really really really happy and touched when I was able to see his drawings with my own eyes. I couldn’t deliver my letter directly, but I was glad that he was able to receive it.
If you take a look at Chaeyoung’s art, you can totally see Tim Burton’s influence on her style, but she has also crafted her own unique style.
In her Instagram post from the exhibit, Chaeyoung included a photo of the letter she wrote for Tim Burton. She tied the letter with string and drew a tiny drawing on the outside of the letter.
Fans spotted Tim Burton holding Chaeyoung’s letter, which indicated that he had not only received it but also read it!
ONCE was so happy that Chaeyoung’s letter was read by her inspiration, Tim Burton!
As a twice fan & someone who loves tim burton’s movies, this makes me so happy and I’m sure Chaeyoung is also really happy 😭❤️ https://t.co/xH5XUpO7Ca
