Can't Let You Go Even If I Die (Hangul: 죽어도 못 보내; RR: Jugeodo mot bonae) is the debut mini-album by South Korean ballad boy band 2AM. A repackaged version was released in March 16, 2010 with the song "I Was Wrong" as the title track.

History[edit]

As opposed to their previous songs, the tracks on the mini-album were not written by Park Jin-young, but by Bang Si Hyuk, who is famous for composing Baek Ji-young's "총 맞은 것처럼" ("Like Being Hit By a Bullet") and 8Eight's "심장이 없어" ("Without a Heart").[1] Although set to be released on January 26, 2010, the mini-album was unexpectedly delayed and instead released 2 days later.[2]

Music video[edit]

In the week before the song's official release, 4 teaser videos of each member were released on 2AM's official YouTube channel, each depicting a different season. The full music video was released on February 20, 2010.

Promotions[edit]

The song quickly topped the online music charts after its release, beating Girls' Generation's "Oh!" and CN Blue's "I'm A Loner".[3] 2AM made their comeback stage on "Inkigayo" on January 24, 2010.

On February 7, 2010, 2AM won their first Mutizen award on "Inkigayo" since their debut. On February 25, 2010, their second win was on Mnet M!Countdown. They won a second Mutizen on their final day of promotions on March 7, 2010.[4]
