WINNER (위너) is a boy group under YG Entertainment. To be honest, I don’t know much about them. When I first got into K-Pop around the beginning of the 2000’s, I first got into YG Entertainment artists. I was a huge fan of 1TYM, Se7en, JinuSean, Wheesung, and Gummy. I also stanned BIGBANG and 2NE1 since before their debuts. As y’all know, I started falling out of the K-Pop mainstream loop around 2014-ish. I slowly kind of stopped following YG Entertainment artists, especially with the recent scandals. I’ll still listen to some songs though. So I’ll listen to a couple of their tracks, but I’m clueless as to any other info really. I’m more familiar with Blackpink than I am with WINNER or iKON. All I really know is that they debuted in 2014. They originally debuted with 5 members. However the current lineup consists of 4 members: JinWoo, SeungHoon, Mino, and SeungYoon. I’m only somewhat familiar with Mino. I know he was on the rap competition Show Me the Money (Season 4). I recognize him from being featured in some other artists’ tracks/mvs. The one I recognize him from most would be Epik High’s [Born Hater]. Which he was featured alongside with label-mates Bobby and B.I from iKON.

Artist: WINNER/위너
Album/EP: WE
Release: 2019
Genre: K-Pop, EDM, Pop, Dance
Language: Korean

I think “아예(AH YEAH)” is probably one of my favorite tracks that I’ve heard from WINNER. It’s a summer bop. The song sounds upbeat and fun. The MV is super bright and colorful. The choreo also looks super fun. However, this is actually a break-up song! It’s rather bitter sweet? The song is about ending things with their lover, and making a promise to clearly cut things between them. After all, if you take love out of the equation, all that’s left are two strangers. They talk about how they’re happy to have more freedom and time. They say that they don’t care anymore, even if she’s to cry blood. They don’t care if they seem harsh or seem like trash. They’ve made their minds to end things clearly. However, it’s clear that they’re not as happy to end things as they appear to be. They admit that the truth is, they don’t want their relationship to be like an open ending in a movie. They don’t want to be left in tears, so it’s best to just clearly cut things off. They then end the song stating that, “It’s over.” So yeah, it’s kind of sad. However, the song is still a bop. Plus, the choreo looks fun.

You can listen to WINNER’s “아예(AH YEAH)” from their WE EP on Spotify:


아예(AH YEAH)

The MV is super bright and colorful. It looks hella fun too. It seems super cute. However, in a way it also translates a part of the song. It shows how they’re trying to be find with breaking up. As if they’re refusing to be sad. They’re trying to show, “I’m totally fine, even without you.” However, the end shows that despite everything, there’s still this sense of loss and regret. It’s almost like the fun and upbeat attitude is a pretense of being unaffected. It’s like you’re happy and accepted that it’s over. However, there’s still going to be a part of you that’s sad about it. Which is true in real relationships. Things can end. Sometimes they end badly. Sometimes you’re truly happy it’s over. However, it’s also a fact that you’ve spent alot of time, energy, and memories with that other person. You can see that in how, although it’s still colorful, it ends with the members in a more subdued lighting. They’re no longer smiling, and they look exhausted.

[Pre-Chorus: Seunghoon]
Like a scene of the movie
Even if I love
I don’t want an open ending
Like the main characters in the movie
I don’t want to cry out in tears
And regret
Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah


[Chorus: All]
We should just promise
I can’t be friends with you
Let’s make this clear
Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sometimes it is heartless
If you take out love
We are supposed to be a stranger
Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 3: MINO]
Ah yeah – I want you
Ah yeah, – To leave
MINO
For now, Bye, bye
Scissors in front of Break-ups
You are the person who never want to lose
So I’ll cut out the thread of lingering love
I’m so pathetic
Even though I made up my mind to end things with you
I cling onto your sleeve
And freeze up because you’re my only love

Choreo Vid

I just really, really love the choreo. Honestly, it’s how I first found and fell in love with the song. I actually found the song through a random dance cover vid, as well as one of those random dance play vids. The choreo is really cute and fun. Even if this is a break up song. I love Mino’s little broken pinky promise part at the beginning. However, the choreo for the chorus is definitely my ultimate favorite part. The pulling back and forth at the “AH YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH” is so simple and fun. However, I just love how the choreo translates the lyrics so well. From the pinkies for promises, to show how they’re promising to not even be friends anymore. To how they’re basically throwing away their relationship and any promises they’ve made to each other during their relationship. Then signaling their farewell to everything. It’s cute and matches the song’s lyrics and fun and upbeat nature as well.

I love summer bops~

Anyway, that was WINNER’s “아예(AH YEAH)”. That’s your summer break-up song that’s still kind of fun. It’s bittersweet, but it’s still a bop. Honestly, WINNER has several summer bops that have that tropical house vibe. Still, this one is probably my favorite in both sound and choreo. What did y’all think? Have you heard “아예(AH YEAH)” before? What’s your favorite WINNER summer bop? Let me know! Honestly, my current fav summer bop is BTS’ [Dynamite]. However, I’ve had “아예(AH YEAH)” on constant repeat too. Anyway, I hope y’all are enjoying your summer so far (despite the current circumstances). Take care, stay safe, stay healthy, and have a wonderful day!~

Take care y’all. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. All jokes and fun aside…please, please, please, pleaaaase always wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask! I’m serious. Please take COVID-19 seriously. It truly is a matter of life and death. It’s something that needs to be taken seriously. It’s not just about the death of if you or someone you know gets it, but it also heavily affects those left behind. There are also aftereffects for those who are able to get through COVID-19. Be responsible. Be safe. Take care y’all. Have a wonderful day.


BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation. Make sure to have those conversations. Aside from donating, I had several conversations with my family. I explained things to my parents, especially since some news stories were being reported inaccurately. I was afraid it’d be a bit difficult. However, as fellow BIPOC and human beings, it was a necessary conversation. My parents and grandma understand, and now stand on the same page regarding BLM as well. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.
