SPEED's "Sad Promise"/"It's My Fault" drama ver.

SPEED, the subunit of Co-Ed School has released the drama version of "Sad Promise" after the dance version of the MV.

This is not just an MV for a song. I like how Core Contents Media is using an dramatic MV to remind us about a historical event that shook the nation (South Korea). The video deals with Gwangju Uprising that happened in the 1980s and centred around four civilians played by Son Na Eun, Park Bo Young, Ji Chang Wook and Ha Seok Jin.



Here are the translations for the words that appear at the end:

During May 18, 1980 Gwangju Democratic Uprising, 163 were killed, 166 went missing, 101 died from injuries, 3,139 were injured, 1,589 were arrested and/or jailed and 5 unidentified people were buried under nameless tombstones; total 5,189 people were verified as victims.
Still many of survivors are still suffering from PTSD and many people who were traumatized by the shock and still remember vividly those moments are suffering from depression, panic attack & alcohol addiction.
5.18 Democratic Uprising subsequently became the power source of the persistent democratic movements. In 2011, the importance of 5.18 Democratic Uprising was recognized by UNESCO which archived it as World Human Rights Documentary Heritage.
Eventually the spring of democracy came to Gwangju.
We're dedicating this music video to those who participated in the democratic movements.

I am expecting a sequel, drama ver. of It's Over to be released soon! Can't wait to see how the story will play out.
