Wrongful Meeting

Friday, August 22, 2014

Then on that day when you and I got into a big fight, you and my friend stopped calling and began avoiding me. Then I finally realized that everything had gone wrong. You and my friend had already turned into lovers.” –Kim Gun Mo, Wrongful Meeting [translated lyrics]

Program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend” menghadirkan Kim Gun Mo sebagai legenda pada edisi spesial yang terbagi menjadi dua bagian, yaitu pada episode 41 dan 42. Pada edisi spesial tersebut, lagu-lagu hits yang telah dicetak oleh penyanyi legendaris Korea Selatan itu dihidupkan kembali. Tentu saja, edisi spesial Kim Gun Mo tidak dapat meninggalkan lagu yang satu ini, yaitu “Wrongful Meeting”, atau yang dikenal juga dengan judul “The Wrong Encounter”. Lagu ini ditampilkan oleh maknae (anggota termuda, red.) dari boy group SHINee, Lee Taemin, pada episode 42. Episode ini ditayangkan pada tanggal 17 Maret 2012 oleh stasiun televisi KBS, serta mengudara di channel KBS World pada tanggal 7 April 2012. “Wrongful Meeting” adalah mega hit Kim Gun Mo yang menandai puncak karirnya di dunia musik Korea Selatan. Bahkan hingga saat ini, “Wrongful Meeting” masih banyak digemari oleh masyarakat di sana.
“Wrongful Meeting” is a song about someone who’s being betrayed by his lover and friend. It all begins with a simple yet regretful act; introduce his lover and his friend to each other in a meeting on one day. Who knows that the simple meeting could turn out wrong? “Because I trusted my friend as much as I trusted you, I introduced you to my friend without thinking twice about it. After that meeting, we simply got together a lot; having a good time and hanging out together. But at what point did such encounters turn wrong? As I was slowly stepping into mysterious apprehension, you were paying more attention to my friend than me, and slowly distancing me.” It all begins with a simple meeting. Who knows that the trust in a friendship could be broken so easily? Who knows that the love in a relationship could be betrayed so easily? “Because I trusted my friend as much as I loved you, I simply hung out naturally together with you. But since when did our trust begin to crack? I did not know, I kept having this awkward feeling. And the longer the time we spent hanging out like that, I felt that you were slowly drifting away from me, and then I sensed it. You were more interested in my friend than me.” Betrayal is always hurt. And indeed, people whom we hold most dear are the people who have the stongest ability to hurt us. What hurt more is the fact that we lose both love and friendship at the same time. Moreover, we didn’t have any idea that it would come. And it all began with a wrongful meeting. “Then on that day when you and I got into a big fight, you and my friend stopped calling and began avoiding me. Then I finally realized that everything had gone wrong. You and my friend had already turned into lovers. I cried, thinking how this could be happening, because I had to lose both my love and friendship. Another friend of mine tapped me on my shoulder and told me to forget it all, but I don’t think I can.”

Versi original lagu ini merupakan lagu electronic pop dengan energetic beats, yang mengukuhkan posisi Kim sebagai music trend-setter pada waktu itu. Untuk membawakan signature song Kim ini, Taemin secara khusus menampilkan rapper dari girl group f(X), Amber, untuk menyanyikan rap part dalam “Wrongful Meeting”.

Moreover, the modern dance electro-pop arrangement proves that “Wrongful Meeting” is never wrong. Indeed, it’s an everlasting immortal song.

I cried, thinking how this could be happening, because I had to lose both my love and friendship. Another friend of mine tapped me on my shoulder and told me to forget it all, but I don’t think I can.” –Kim Gun Mo, Wrongful Meeting [translated lyrics]
