People Who Make Me Sad

Sunday, October 26, 2014

One time, my heart is broken by seeing you cry all alone by yourself because of him. I want to come running to him and say this, ‘The one girl that you’ve just hurt, for me is my everything.’” –Kim Kyung Ho, People Who Make Me Sad [translated lyrics]

Kim Kyung Ho adalah salah satu rocker legendaris Korea Selatan. Ia juga merupakan penyanyi yang diorbitkan oleh komposer dan produser musik ternama, Lee Kyung Sup. Pada program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend” episode 161 di mana Lee hadir sebagai legenda, salah satu lagu hits yang ditampilkan adalah lagu yang Lee berikan untuk Kim, “People Who Make Me Sad”. Dengan aransemen rock ballad ala 90-an dan suara Kim yang melengking tinggi, serta lirik lagu yang menyayat hati, “People Who Make Me Sad” adalah lagu favorit saya akhir-akhir ini yang selalu mengisi playlist dan saya dengarkan paling tidak sepuluh kali dalam sehari. Dalam episode yang ditayangkan oleh stasiun televisi KBS pada tanggal 16 Agustus 2014, serta mengudara di channel KBS World pada tanggal 6 September 2014 tersebut, “People Who Make Me Sad” dibawakan oleh solois pria, Hong Kyung Min. Sebagai penampilan penutup pada episode tersebut, Hong memberi sebuah penampilan luar biasa yang pada akhirnya membuatnya memenangkan piala “Immortal Songs 2” dengan lagu “People Who Make Me Sad”.

There are many heart-breaking things in this world. One of them is an unrequited love. There are many kinds of unrequited love. I personally think, that the most heart-breaking unrequited love is the one that we have for our best friend. “People Who Make Me Sad” is a song about someone who have a one-sided love for his best friend and is being hurt, not only because of the best friend but also the other person that the best friend loves. If that kind of situation was happening to us, we can’t help but wishing that we could be the kind of person that more of like a lover than just a best friend. “The one person whose voice you will recognize at once when I call out of nowhere and just saying ‘it’s me’. The one person you will be reminded first when you see a shirt on the shop’s show-windows. The one person who will be kept in your wallet forever. The one person you will go to find first whenever you feel sad and tired of loneliness. The one person who will hug you in your birthdays.” These later two sentences are got me so. “Can’t I be that kind of person to you? I don’t want to be just a friend for you.” Why can’t I be that kind of person to you, when I don’t want to be just a friend for you?
It is being said that there is no pure friendship between a man and a woman, because one of them (or maybe two) will always secretly fall for the other one. It’s just the matter of timing whether the love becomes an unrequited one. The hardest part of a one-sided love is seeing the person we love loves someone else. The worst part of an unrequited love is seeing the person we love is hurt by that someone else. “One time, my heart is broken by seeing you cry all alone by yourself because of him. I want to come running to him and say this, ‘The one girl that you’ve just hurt, for me is my everything.’” The feeling that we could treat that person much more better than that someone else, the feeling that the person deserves much more than that someone else, it’s torturing. “One time, my heart is broken by seeing you cry all alone by yourself because of him. I want to come running to him and say this, ‘The girl by your side is someone that I could never have even if I traded everything of my life.’” When that person is our everything, why must they cry for someone else? When that person is the one we can never ever have, why must they’re hurt by someone else? That person we love and that someone else, are people who make us sad. We can only sincerely wish that the someone else would understand that they’re the happiest person in this world, because they can have that person we love by their side. “The only reason that you are the happiest person out of everyone else in this world, is because you have her by your side.”

Hong Kyung Min ketika membawakan lagu "People Who Make Me Sad" pada program "Immortal Songs 2" episode 161


Dirilis pertama kali pada tahun 1997, “People Who Make Me Sad” adalah bagian dari album kedua Kim Kyung Ho yang terjual hingga jutaan salinan, membuat Kim menjadi salah satu rocker papan atas di negeri ginseng tersebut. Lagu rock ballad ini menonjolkan kualitas vokal Kim yang tak tertandingi. Bahkan seorang Hong Kyung Min pun merasa sangat nervous untuk membawakan lagu tersebut dalam program “Immortal Songs 2”. Kali itu adalah pertama kalinya Hong tidak menyanyikan lagu dengan kunci originalnya dalam sepanjang sejarah ia tampil di program “Immortal Songs 2”. Ia menurunkan kunci lagu dan membawakannya satu kunci lebih renda dibandingkan versi originalnya. Meskipun demikian, kali itu adalah pertama (dan mungkin terakhir) Hong menyanyikan sebuah lagu dengan kunci tertinggi sepanjang sejarah karirnya dalam industri musik Korea Selatan. MC dari program ini, Jung Jae Hyung, menyatakan bahwa penampilan Hong kali itu adalah ‘a rediscovery of Hong Kyung Min’. Indeed, the ending was breathtaking, and Hong gave his all in that performance. Thanks to him, I discovered this amazing song.
