Separation in the Rain

Hidden by the raindrops, you probably couldn’t see my tears. So that your memory could only remember my wet and smiling face, I have to keep smiling until you turn your back away from me. I wonder if this pouring rain would wash away the time we’ve shared together.” –Lee Joon Gi, The Rain (Separation, You Win) [translated lyrics]


Lee Joon Gi (also known as Lee Jun Ki), aktor sekaligus penyanyi asal Korea Selatan, merilis sebuah mini album bertajuk “Deucer” pada tanggal 25 April 2012. Album ini merupakan comeback project Joon Gi di belantika musik paska menunaikan tugas wajib militernya pada bulan Februari 2012. Album yang sebelumnya dirilis dalam bentuk limited edition pada tanggal 16 Maret 2012 ini tidak dipromosikan di Korea Selatan, melainkan di Jepang, negara di mana fans Joon Gi banyak terdapat. Dalam album ini terdapat sebuah lagu manis berjudul “The Rain (Separation, You Win)”.
“The Rain”, or also titled as ”Separation, You Win”, is a song as about separation that happened in the rain. That cold separation is remain remains in our mind forever, because that separation has finally won over our loves, our loves that we even keep fighting for until the very last time. Relationship was a battlefield between love and loathe, between stay together and to be separated. On that rainy day, so sad but true, the separation was finally winning. Even in the last time, we put on a faint smile line, so that the thing that they would remember forever was our smiling face, neither our tears nor our crying face. The rain on that day successfully hide our tears, but could it wash away our memories too? Would we forget about those pains when the rain stops too? To say that we love them, to say that we need them, even those words that we couldn’t say until the last time has hidden in the rain on that day. No matter how hard we cry or how loud we scream, those things were hidden by the rain. No matter what we did, it couldn’t bring them back. In the end, we couldn’t keep our promise to be with them forever, because the separation has won. From then until forever, every time it’s raining, we would remember about that sad separation. It would haunt forever in the deepest of our memories.



“The Rain (Separation, You Win)” dirilis dalam dua versi sekaligus, yaitu versi berbahasa Korea dan versi berbahasa Jepang. Meskipun tidak dirilis sebagai promotional single, lagu ini adalah lagu pop ballad R n’ B yang sangat indah. This sad love song has a beautiful melody which combines perfectly with great lyrics and Joon Gi’s sweet vocal. Album “Deucer” sendiri langsung menduduki posisi puncak tangga lagu Oricon dalam minggu pertama perilisannya. Ini merupakan capaian yang luar biasa, mengingat Joon Gi tidak berasal dari Jepang dan baru saja kembali setelah hiatus selama hampir dua tahun untuk wajib militer. Indeed, this album is so soulful, especially “The Rain (Separation, You Win)” track.

’I love you,’ three words that I can’t say anymore from now on. ‘I need you,’ three words that I need no more, but will haunt in my painful memories. There’s no other in this world who could love you like I did, but my love had grown cold and silent. Separation, you have won over me.” –Lee Joon Gi, The Rain (Separation, You Win) [translated lyrics]
