'All snuffed like candlelights, left up to broken memories / All snuffed like candlelights, only a glimmer in me now'.
On the collaboration, Sunset Rollercoaster shares: “Oh Hyuk has a unique and emotional voice, it’s great that we can work on the song Candlelight together, it’s a song about memories. Oh Hyuk made it colorful." OHHYUK adds: “I really like Sunset Rollercoaster’s music and enjoy listening to their songs often. So, it felt great to take part in a new song by the band. I had a pleasant time and I hope people will enjoy listening to the track."
