Music Monday|Jukjae x HYUK — 동백꽃(Camellia)

SURPRISE! I bring a bonus, third Music Monday post for today! Honestly, I did it because I love this track and because it’s another Jukjae track~ This one is honestly super sweet and made me cry. The final Music Monday post for today is “동백꽃(Camellia)” by 적재(Jukjae) and 혁(HYUK). If you love really cute and emotional kind of stuff, I definitely recommend checking out the lyrics and music video for this one! “동백꽃(Camellia)” is still a somewhat recent track since it was released at the end of December. It’s a ballad with some really sweet lyrics. I honestly think it’s probably one of the most beautiful love ballads that I’ve heard~

Jukjae x HYUK – 동백꽃(Camellia) live clip

Since we just covered Jukjae in today’s earlier post on [Tattoo], I won’t be going into his background information here. As for HYUK, his real name is Han Sang Hyuk (한상혁). He’s a member of the K-Pop idol group VIXX (빅스). I’ll be honest, I’ve heard of VIXX. However, I don’t really follow them or listen to their music. I did like their track [도원경(桃源境) (Shangri-La)] though. He’s also done acting in some movies and K-Dramas.

Artist: 적재(Jukjae) X 혁(HYUK)
Single: 동백꽃(Camellia)
Genre: K-Pop, Ballad
Language: Korean
Release: December 2020

This collaboration between Jukjae and HYUK dropped December 22, 2020. It’s an incredibly sweet and beautiful love ballad. I’d say it’s a track that describes true and genuine love. The title “동백꽃(Camellia)” is a reference to the camellia flower. It usually symbolizes love, affection, admiration, and adoration. Apparently in Korea, it also symbolizes faithfulness and longevity. They’re also used in Korean wedding ceremonies. So we can say the meaning of the flower and the song is a true love that’s faithful and eternal.

Legit me because I’m a romanticist and a sucker for these kinds of things.

You can find “동백꽃(Camellia)” by 적재(Jukjae) X 혁(HYUK) on Spotify, here:

Music Video & Lyrics

Okay, so remember what I said about the camellia flower. Again, the flower usually symbolizes love, affection, admiration, and adoration. In Korea, it also symbolizes faithfulness and longevity. Camellias are also used in Korean wedding ceremonies. So again, we can conclude the meaning to be a true love that’s faithful and eternal. That totally fits the music video. The video is so incredibly sweet. It gave me the feels and I cried. It basically follows an elderly man as he wakes up next to his wife. He watches her sleeping peacefully and gently covers her with the blanket. He then goes out to get camellia flowers. As he returns home, he goes through some photos. He reminisces those different stages in his life and the memories he’s shared with his wife when they took those photos. From when they were newly weds who just moved in. To when they were parents who took a photo with their young daughter. In each moment, camellia flowers were present. He’s just looking back at everything so warmly and lovingly. It then ends with him in the present, surprising his wife with the camellia flowers.

Me reading the full translations of the lyrics and watching the MV

The lyrics are also incredibly sweet and beautifully reflect that true, eternal, and heartfelt love. Such a love is one that brings warmth and comfort, it’s home. It’s a place you know you can always go to. The lyrics sing about a love where even the smallest things and moments, even the most ordinary ones, are special. They’re treasured memories that wouldn’t be traded for anything. You want to hold onto it. Even if you went back in time, you wouldn’t change anything. Because no matter what, you’ll always choose that person. Sometimes you don’t feel like you’re enough or that you’ve done enough for what you’ve received. However, you’re still grateful and treasuring this love and every little thing. After all, this is the person you love the most.

To me, it’s a place where
One can stop by to warm up
in the middle of winter
Filled with you everywhere
A place where I can stop by
This is who you are to me

If I had one tiny wish
Just like a story from the movies
Never let go of our holding hands

Even if time rewinds
And today is given back to me
It’s you, baby it’s you
Even if time passes
And today becomes my last day
It’s you, always it’s you

An ordinary day with you
One by one,
It becomes a memory
All those days
That will never come again
Make this moment even more precious

Even if time rewinds
And today is given back to me
It’s you, baby it’s you
Even if time passes
And today becomes my last day
(Because you should be
more loved and happy)
It’s you, always it’s you
(I’m sorry that I’m not enough for you)

More than anyone, more than anything
My heart is always
It’s you, always been you
(If you and I could meet again
and be together
under the same sky)

Then I will come and find you
I will love you more
I love you more than anyone else

Me at the end of the MV

Seriously, I was tearing up with the feels from the music video and the lyrics. I think it’s such a sweet and beautiful track and video. Personally, I’m in no rush for romance. If it happens it happens, but I’m fine if I live my life alone~ LOVE YOURSELF~ However, if I were to ever experience love, this is the kind of love I’d want. I think we all do. If I ever have someone special, I’d like to hope that this is what we’d feel for each other. UGH. It’s too sweet. My inner romanticist is just squealing and crying lol

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].

You can also check out the following:

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.
