Article covers the mini-album Can't Let You Go Even If I Die and the full album I Was Wrong

Can't Let You Go Even If I Die (Hangul죽어도 못 보내; RRJugeodo mot bonae) is the 6-track debut mini-album by South Korean ballad boy band 2AM. The title track "Can't Let You Go Even If I Die" was released as a single.

A repackaged 11-track version renamed I Was Wrong was released as a full album. It contained all six tracks of the mini album Can't Let You Go Even If I Die with five additional tracks not found on the original mini-album. The title track "Jalmot Haesseo (I Was Wrong)" was released on March 16, 2010 as a single.

History[edit]

As opposed to their previous songs, the tracks on the mini-album were not written by Park Jin-young, but by Big Hit Entertainment founder and Park's long-time songwriting partner 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, four 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.

Promotion[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]
