The track is of the ballad genre. It tends a bit toward the classical layering as the composer K.imazine carefully weaves the grand cello string, a soft piano, and drums into the piece. The vocal prowess of HYNN carries the track through and through. The melody is very calming and at the same time depicts the sadness of parting a beloved.

The music video breaks the stereotypical notions for the colour orange and white. Often the colour orange is related to energy and warmth, while white symbolizes peace and a new beginning. However, the video portrays orange as the colour of shriveling, just like dried leaves from fall. Whereas white is depicted as icy pain and a blank state of mind.
The video progress with this theme and tells a lot about the state of mind during a breakup or sudden departure of someone. Like the snowflakes during the snow, you can feel the year that is scattered everywhere. HYNN’s vocal has elevated the video depicting the white is the icy pain of a breakup.
Written by Jung Seung Hwan and Ahn HyoJin, the lyrics beautifully transcend the sorrowful melody as a visual scenery. They embroider the icy cold farewell as a yearning, a longing on a lonely winter night. Comparing small things like walking with you and without you.
Here is an excerpt from the lyrics!

여기까지가 우리 이야기야
