Don't Forget

Don’t forget me. Even if I only had one second to live, this one heart that I had was to love you only. Even for a sad thing like tears, I will hide them from you. I will leave, but please remember me.” –Huh Gak, Don’t Forget Me (OST. The Greatest Love) [translated lyrics]


Solois pria juara program pencarian bakat “Superstar K season 2”, Huh Gak, turut berpartisipasi dalam mengisi jajaran lagu soundtrack untuk serial drama populer “The Greatest Love”. Lagu berjudul “Don’t Forget Me” ini dirilis pada tanggal 1 Juni 2011 sebagai single “The Greatest Love OST Part 5”. Lagu ini menggambarkan perasaan tokoh utama dalam serial ini, Dokko Jin (diperankan oleh Cha Seung Won), kepada Goo Ae Jung (diperankan oleh Gong Hyo Jin). Di sisi lain, lagu ini juga merupakan gambaran perasaan tokoh Yoon Pil Joo (diperankan oleh Yoon Kye Sang) yang cintanya bertepuk sebelah tangan kepada Ae Jung.
This song has sad and deep meaning lyrics about someone who has to let go of their love. “Love is something that’s far away. When I see it, my heart hurts, and tears fall. So I better leave my love, for the sake of my love. Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.” About someone who is unable to reach for their love. About someone who is unable to stand by the one they love. About someone who is unable to protect their love. About someone who has to say goodbye to their love. “Please don’t forget me, the one who left without even saying I love you. It’s easier to leave when you feel the love all by yourself. Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.” About someone whose love is way too deep. About someone whose love can’t be forgotten. About someone whose love stays forever in their heart. “In this world, if there was only one person who would love only you, it would be me. Please remember that it would be me.”


Segera setelah perilisannya, single soundtrack ini menyapu bersih seluruh tangga lagu digital di Korea Selatan. “Don’t Forget Me” kemudian menjadi bagian dari album “The Greatest Love: Original Soundtrack” yang dirilis pada tanggal 14 Juli 2011. Popularitas dari serial ini turut mengangkat lagu-lagu soundtrack-nya. Lagu ini pun mendapat nominasi sebagai Best Original Soundtrack dalam ajang bergengsi 2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards. Dalam ajang yang sama, Huh Gak berhasil meraih penghargaan untuk kategori Best New Male Artist. Indeed, Huh Gak’s voice matches so well with the song’s melancholic melody and sad lyrics. Through this song, he shows his powerful vocal ability and sorrowful emotions.

Please don’t forget me. Even if I lived for a thousand years, I would be a foolish person whose heart only loved you. Even for a thing like your cell phone, I’m so jealous, because it’s beside you right now. Don’t forget me.” –Huh Gak, Don’t Forget Me (OST. The Greatest Love) [translated lyrics]
