Being released in 2018, A Fence was still more than worthy to put on repeat these days. When it comes to creating music, artists always have something to talk about through their works. The message either talks about life, love, problems, family, etc. Among every artist in the industry, Woo Won-jae is one of many rappers that always imply deep messages in his songs. He often talks about his stories, the way he sees life from his point of view. In one of his songs, titled a fence, Woo openly talks about his problems that he faced back then, and how he reacted to that.
Song Description | Woo – a fence: Woo Title Track, Produced by GRAY
Not long after he signed his contract with AOMG, Woo released several tracks under his name, one of them was an extended plays titled af. The EP was stacked with an amazing lineup of good music on it, and one of them was a fence, a song that was chosen to be the title track. Based on the lyrics that Woo wrote for a fence, we can tell that he genuinely poured his own stories, experience and worries into a song. We can totally feel his genuineness in his music.
The song itself wrapped up in one of the most fancy ways. The song started with instruments followed by warm vocals from Woo himself. This song exudes a beautiful jazzy feel from it’s beat, blended with Woo raps and lyrics with deep meaning makes this song even more beautiful. Thanks to GRAY who made and produced this awesome and catchy beat for us to listen to.
Lyrics Description | Woo – a fence: When People Opinion Led to Self-contradiction
A fence tells us about how Woo wasn’t completely ready when he received a lot of attention from the public soon after he got the spotlight from Show me the Money 6 and after he signed a contract with AOMG. He stated in an interview that he started to hear people saying things about him and he can’t completely deal with it. We all know that on Show me the Money 6, Woo somehow exudes those mysterious and dark vibes from him that makes people label him as the dark one, depressed one, etc. All those statements somehow makes Woo trapped in that kind of image involuntarily.
“I’m imprisoned right now. I can’t escape. Where you at? Inside the fence.”
The song somehow implies self-contradiction on Woo himself. He tries to not weigh his mind with all those comments and statements from people, but at the same time, he feels like he’s not okay, he’s still bothered by comments from people that know nothing about him.
“Really I’m not okay. No, I’m really okay.”

Perfect Time to Listen to a fence?
A fence contains stories about how Woo overcomes and deals with his problems. If you’re happened to encounter the same exact problems, then this song is the right choice for you. People know nothing about you yet they keep saying things that are not true about you. It’s pretty much common nowadays, isn’t it? Then you slowly turn into someone that people said about you, trapped in a frame that was created by people who didn’t even know you personally.
It’s hard to deal with people’s comments, sometimes the best way is to ignore them, but for some people it’s kinda hard to ignore them. Whatever people say about you, when they keep saying things that are not true about you, just don’t lose yourself. Don’t lock yourself inside the fence that they built to obstruct you from your freedom. It’s best to listen to a fence when you’re in the middle of a midnight drive or ride, or when you’re about to have some late night me-time.
