Sad Promise

I just can’t do anything without you. For me, it just has to be you. You’re getting farther away and you’re leaving me as time goes by. I feel like I will suffocate and die.” –SPEED feat. Kang Min Kyung, That’s My Fault [translated lyrics]

"Speed of Light" single album cover by SPEED - source: en.wikipedia.org

SPEED, adalah sebuah boy group yang terdiri dari tujuh anggota dan merupakan sub-unit dari idol group Co-Ed School yang debut pada tahun 2010. Setelah melalui proses ‘bongkar-pasang’ personel, SPEED melakukan debut mereka pada awal tahun 2013 dengan line-up members Jungwoo, Taewoon, Yoohwan, Taeha, Jongkook, Sejoon, dan Sungmin. Pada tanggal 7 Januari 2013, mereka merilis single album bertajuk “Speed of Light” sebagai prolog dari album perdana mereka. Sebuah lagu hip hop ballad, “That’s My Fault”, merupakan title song sekaligus promotional single dari single album ini. “That’s My Fault” menampilkan Kang Min Kyung dari duo Davichi sebagai pengisi bagian chorus.
“That’s My Fault” is a song that describes a man who is heartbroken after a breakup. Tentang seseorang yang menyesali keputusannya untuk melepaskan orang yang ia cintai. Tentang seseorang yang terlambat menyadari kesalahannya telah melepaskan orang yang ia cintai. “I curse the heavens and fall into despair. The day I let you go, I pounded the ground. People told me not to lose you, saying that it’ll be hard to find another girl like you, that there won’t be another girl like you.” Pada awalnya ia menyangka bahwa segalanya akan baik-baik saja, bahwa lukanya akan membaik seiring berjalannya waktu. Namun ia salah. “Your image in the photo disappears. Thinking that it will be okay is false thought. I hope you will be happy, I hope you will be well. My heart will never change, I want to be with you.” Hingga pada akhirnya, yang tertinggal adalah rasa marah dan kecewa terhadap diri sendiri. Atas semua kesalahan, atas segala ketidakmampuan, atas seluruh ketidakberdayaan. “As I see you leaving me, I think that this is actually the right thing to do. Although my heart hurts, a part of me feels relieved. All the things I couldn’t do for you become anger. Even a small present, I couldn’t even give you. Tears keep coming. Does this make sense?
Sebuah cerita pendek berjudul “Sad Promise” dirilis sebagai tema music video (MV) untuk promosi lagu “That’s My Fault”. MV ini menampilkan aktris Park Bo Young, aktor Ji Chang Wook dan Ha Seok Jin, serta anggota girl group A Pink, Son Naeun, sebagai model di dalamnya. Ditambah lagi dengan penampilan khusus dari aktor kawakan, Kim Young Ho. Istimewanya, cerita dalam MV berdasarkan sebuah kisah nyata di Korea Selatan, yaitu tragedi “Gwangju Democratization Movement”, atau yang terkenal juga dengan sebutan “Gwangju Massacre”. Peristiwa berdarah tersebut yang terjadi pada tanggal 18 Mei 1980 di Kota Gwangju, ketika terjadi bentrokan dan kerusuhan antara rakyat sipil dan tentara.
Disutradarai oleh Cha Eun Taek, “Sad Promise” terdiri dari dua bagian terpisah. Bagian pertama adalah MV untuk lagu “That’s My Fault”, sedangkan bagian kedua menjadi MV bagi lagu “It’s Over”, yang merupakan lead single dari album pertama SPEED. Kedua MV sekelas blockbuster ini diperkirakan menghabiskan budget sebanyak 750 juta KRW, atau sekitar 700.000 USD. I’m so in love with this MV, especially, because Park Bo Young and Ji Chang Wook starred in it. First time I noticed this “That’s My Fault” song was because I saw the MV first, and of course it’s because Ji Chang Wook’s in it. But then, it turned out that I fell in love so much too with this song. The MV features a heart-aching love story and friendship set in the ’80s. The actors and actresses’ acting are so emotionally touching and overall, this MV is one of a kind.
Pada tanggal 15 Januari 2013, SPEED merilis album debut mereka, “Superior Speed”, dengan composer terkemuka Lee Ho Yang a.k.a Shinsadong Tiger dan Brave Brothers sebagai produsernya. “That’s My Fault” menjadi bagian dari album ini. Lagu ini ditulis liriknya oleh composer Double Kick dan Glory of the Face, serta dirancang musiknya oleh Double Kick dan David Kim, dengan aransemen oleh Glory of the Face. I feel so grateful to get to know this beautiful song. SPEED’s rap, Kang Min Kyung’s angelic voice, its Mandorin melody, all blended so well in “That’s My Fault”. This is a song that you must not miss, and it’s definitely a must-listing track.

When I said I was meeting someone else, when I said that I was doing well, they were all lies, please don’t be happy without me. Tears fall, so many tears fall. I can’t live a day without you, it’s all my fault.” –SPEED feat. Kang Min Kyung, That’s My Fault [translated lyrics]
