Before holding their fan meeting in Gwangju, the members of SPEED went to visit the Gwangju Democratzation Cemetery to pay their respects for the Gwangju 5.18 incident. The incident is extremely meaningful to the group, especially since their debut music videos for “Sad Promise” and “It’s Over” depicted the sad moment in Korean history.
“We were happy that the people who watched the two music videos took the situation realistically instead of just thinking of it as just another video to enjoy and forget. We paid our respects at the Gwangju Democratization Cemetery hoping that our music video can be a way of thinking back and reminding ourselves about the pain that many experienced back then in a respectful manner,” SPEED members said.
Not only this but SPEED has revealed that in memory of the ‘5.18 Gwangju Democratization Movement‘ they will be donating all of their profits from their first album.
