Music Monday|Kwon Jin Ah — This Winter (이번 겨울)

HIHI BAYOG FAM! It’s Monday! Y’all know what that means!~ Time for another Music Monday post! The holidays (and blood loss from my accident) totally threw me off this week… So to be honest, I didn’t realize it was Monday already. I honestly wasn’t too sure what track to share today. I mean, I plan it out on the BAYOG calendar and all. Still, I just felt like the original track I chose wasn’t it. Plus, I wanted to choose a track and artist some of y’all might not be too familiar with. Then BAM! I found the perfect track! I know with fall/winter, I’d been choosing more emotional and sad kind of tracks. Well, we here for a wonderfully sweet winter track! Today’s track is This Winter (이번 겨울) by Kwon Jin Ah! I will say that I’ll be trying to breeze through today’s post y’all. I’m tired, have terrible time management, and I’m swamped with other projects. Plus, I’m still dealing with my injury from the knife accident… Yo’ girl is still having a hard time typing with this injury and bandaging…

Kwon Jin Ah, not to be confused with Im Jin Ah known as Nana from After School and Orange Caramel, was a contestant on K-Pop Star 3. She won third place, and ended up signing with record label Antenna. Antenna is an indie record label founded by You Hee Yool (aka Toy), who was also one of the judges from K-Pop Star. Antenna houses artists such as Jung Seung Hwan, Jukjae, and fellow K-Pop Star contestant Sam Kim. She also did the Love Antenna project with Sam Kim. [여기까지(For Now)] is such a great track, and it makes me tear up every time. I love Kwon Jin Ah for the same reasons I like Sam Kim. They both have this soul and R&B sound. They’re also great at expressing emotion in their voices. Although Kwon Jin Ah’s vocals are light and sweet, they do just carry alot of emotion that moves you. She’s also featured on Primary’s [U] with BTS’ RM (formerly known as Rap Monster).

Artist: 권진아/Kwon Jin Ah
Single: This Winter (이번 겨울)
Genre: K-Pop, R&B, Soul
Language: Korean
Release: 2018

“This Winter” is a really sweet love confession song~ It’s a soft, sweet, and really chill track. Genre wise, you have mostly soft and chill R&B and soul. I like that the track isn’t overly complicated or overwhelmed with too many elements. It has that soft winter feel, but it’s mostly some light percussions, guitar, and a bit of bass and keyboard. The track is pretty simple and has a bit of a slight lo-fi vibe in there. It really compliments well with Kwon Jin Ah’s light, sweet, and soulful vocals. I just love how her vocals sound light, delicate, and sweet, Yet, still does have such a soulful sound to it. It all matches the lyrics really well too. Again, this is a really sweet love song about longing for someone and wanting to tell them that you love them~

Official Music Video

The music video is simple, but pretty~ I love the winter aesthetics and how chill it is with Jin Ah singing in a cafe~

Live performance

Lyric wise, it’s honestly just a really sweet love song. She doesn’t know how to express her feelings. Yet, she ends up basically likening her feelings to the excitement of seeing the first snow. She can’t even sleep because she’s excited and can’t wait to see this person. They’re like a precious gift to her, and despite the cold, she only feels warmth. Then the rest of the song is basically her saying she wants to make a wish and tell this person how she feels. Honestly, it’s just so freakin’ sweet. Like winter is typically seen as really cold. However, we got this warm and sweet love song~

I’m blowing out warm air
Onto my red fingertips
What words should I use to express my heart?
It’s probably like the heart fluttering feeling of the first snow

I can’t fall asleep tonight
At the thought of seeing you tomorrow
You’re a gift that came to me
The weather’s cold but it feels so warm

I wanna spend this winter with you
I’m lighting a candle
And earnestly making a wish
Someone, please hear my wish
So my love can come true for the first time
So I can have courage to say
I like you

I’m so nervous
But if this day passes, I don’t think I can do it
If I just reach out a bit more, I can touch your hand
I’m gonna tell you today
That I liked for a while

I wanna spend this winter with you
I’m lighting a candle
And earnestly making a wish
Someone, please hear my wish
So my love can come true for the first time
So I can have courage to say
I like you

I wanna spend this winter with you
I thought a lot about this
I don’t know how this is gonna sound
But I like you, a lot
I like that you’re my first love
Now answer me
Will you hold my hand?

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! It’s better to be cautious than face irrevocable consequences of health complications or death.


AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. 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 and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. 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.
