"You've worked really really worked hard in 2021...I hope that happiness is specially delivered to you in 2022 with 'Special Delivery.' Hope you have a happy year," she added.

She then urged fans to be "healthy in both mind and body."
"I wish the time when I can express my heart face to face comes fast...I miss you a lot...Thank you. Have a blessed year. Happy New Year," she said.
