Sponge Cola released “Siguro Nga” as a song born out of the love of vocalist and guitarist Yael Yuzon for Han Ji-Pyeong, a prominent character whose unorthodox upbringing and misfortune in life allowed him to become a principled, self-made man with a tough exterior and unknown to everyone—a tender heart.
“Immediately after the shock of episode 9, I literally picked up a guitar and began writing the
song,” Yuzon shares in a statement. “I didn’t know how the story was going to unfold, but at that
point, I felt like it wasn’t going to work out for Han Ji Pyeong’s character. And while heartbreak
wouldn’t ravage him, it leaves him with an undulating kind of pain.”
“Siguro Nga” expands on this complex character analysis of a man who discovers that he’s lost the love of his life, after spending a lot of time living a lie to protect the person he’s pinning for, from emotional damage and trauma.
Sponge Cola is no stranger to composing songs influenced by their love of cinema and pop culture.
In fact, the four-piece alternative rock outfit named their debut full-length album, Palabas, to recognize the persuasive influence of the show—whether it’s a stage play, a dramatic film, or an episode in a television series—to make us understand our own lives, the lives of those around us, and the lives of people whose contributions to humanity deserve to be celebrated at all costs.
Sponge Cola’s “Siguro Nga” is out now on all digital platforms worldwide via Sony Music Philippines.
