Kang Seung Yoon performs acoustic version of 'IYAH' + explains how his mother inspired the song on 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook'


WINNER's Kang Seung Yoon made an appearance on the April 9 broadcast of KBS2's 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook'!

On this broadcast, Kang Seung Yoon performed an acoustic mix of "IYAH", the title song from his 1st full album 'Page'! Afterward, during his interview segment, the singer explained why he started writing the song, and how much meaning it has for him personally. 

He said, "I started sketching this song at a time when I was feeling so repressed by the pressure of becoming an adult, and all the responsibilities that came with that. And while I was sketching out this song, my mother texted me. She scolded me as always, nagging me like she does. I got annoyed, but then some time later while working on this song, I thought to myself, 'That's right. To my mom, whether I'm in my thirties or forties, I will forever be just a child. Why am I trying to shoulder so much responsibility on my own? Am I just pressuring myself unnecessarily?'." 

Did you know that the signature line in Kang Seung Yoon's "IYAH", which goes "I'm still just a kid~", was inspired by his mother?

Wow!!!! His voice is breathtaking. So magnificent. So extremely talented. Both of these performances/songs are beautiful. I wish there were subtitles, but I still enjoyed listening. I know that he’s a triple threat....he can sing, dance, and act! But, there’s a big difference between him and the typical idol. All kpop idols have to be able to dance, but not all of them can sing. “Some” of them who can’t sing very well, rap instead. Some are a lead dancer, or lead visual. And, even though most of them try, only a small portion can actually act. But, the difference between him and others ......is that he can do all of these things and do them really well. He has so much talent, that he really should be doing so much more. Whether it’s acting or singing. And, when I think about why he’s not doing more..... I always think about past comments I’ve read about YG locking artists in the basement. I know that’s obviously sarcasm, but on a serious note...what do they do with their artists? There’s too many to name, but they do some serious sleeping on a lot of them. I will never understand it. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Anyway, fantastic performances! You are an amazing talent. Your fans appreciate you. Please keep doing what you’re doing. We will continue to cheer you on! 👍🏻👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻
