Unfinished Love in the Entangled Fate

Sunday, July 13, 2014

I promise you, when this all passes and I get to see you again, I will throw away everything to spend the rest of my life by your side. This is what they call fate, it’s something I can’t resist. Will the day as beautiful as this one come again in this lifetime? You are the gift in this lonely journey of life. I will always polish this love so that it doesn’t rust away.” –Lee Sun Hee, Fate (OST. King and the Clown) [translated lyrics]

Dalam rangka memperingati 30 tahun karirnya di industri musik Korea Selatan, solois wanita legendaris Lee Sun Hee hadir sebagai legenda dalam program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend”. Edisi spesial Lee Sun Hee ini dibagi menjadi dua bagian, di mana bagian kedua adalah episode 147 yang mengudara di stasiun televisi KBS pada tanggal 5 April 2014, serta ditayangkan di channel KBS World pada tanggal 26 April 2014. Hadir sebagai penampil pertama dalam episode tersebut adalah penyanyi pria, Yoon Min Soo, anggota dari grup Vibe. Dalam penampilannya kali itu, ia mengajak serta Shin Young Jae, salah satu personel male vocal group 4MEN. Mereka berdua membawakan salah satu hits Lee Sun Hee yang bertajuk “Fate”.
“Fate” is a song about unfinished feeling; an unfinished love in an entangled unfinished fate. “I promise you, when this all passes and I get to see you again, I will throw away everything to spend the rest of my life by your side. This is what they call fate, it’s something I can’t resist. Will the day as beautiful as this one come again in this lifetime? You are the gift in this lonely journey of life. I will always polish this love so that it doesn’t rust away.” It’s about two people who meet in at the wrong time with a right feeling, which makes their future together is uncertain. What they feel for each other can’t be wrong, but what if the time doesn’t aside with them? They certainly are made for each other, but what if the uncertain future beholds them? “Our meeting was short like a drunken stupor, but the love settled in my heart. Even if our love doesn’t last, I have no regrets, ‘cause nothing lasts forever. This is what they call destiny, it’s something I can’t resist. Will the day as beautiful as this one come again in this lifetime? I have a lot of things I want to say, but you would know what’s in my heart. If we ever met again one day after a long journey, don’t let go again.” Indeed love is not measured by the amount of time they spend together, but by the depth of their feeling instead. As they go their separate ways, they make promise for each other to not let go when they ever met again; which they believe they will, because it’s their fate. “An unfinished love of this life, an unfinished fate of this life. When we meet again one day after a long journey, don’t let me go.”
Dirilis pertama kali pada tahun 2005, “Fate” merupakan lagu yang diciptakan sendiri oleh Lee Sun Hee. Ia terinspirasi untuk menulis lagu ini setelah melihat serial drama “The Legendary Police Woman” (2003). Namun pada akhirnya, “Fate” menjadi salah satu original soundtrack untuk film populer “King and the Clown” (2005). Lagu ini juga menjadi bagian dari album ke-13 Lee yang bertajuk “Adolescence”. With the heartwrenching sorrowful lyrics, “Fate” is like an epic poem with the touch of the oriental ballad melody. The collaboration of Yoon Min Soo and Shin Young Jae brought the heavenly harmony to this song. Both the legend and audiences were in awed after their performance. It’s probably one of the greatest duets that ever been appeared on “Immortal Songs 2”. Indeed, it was such a marvelous combo.

Our meeting was short like a drunken stupor, but the love settled in my heart. Even if our love doesn’t last, I have no regrets, ‘cause nothing lasts forever. This is what they call destiny, it’s something I can’t resist. Will the day as beautiful as this one come again in this lifetime? I have a lot of things I want to say, but you would know what’s in my heart. If we ever met again one day after a long journey, don’t let go again.” –Lee Sun Hee, Fate (OST. King and the Clown) [translated lyrics]
