IU’s MV “Love Wins All” Explanation
On January 24th, the music world buzzed with excitement as IU launched her latest music video for the pre-release track “Love Wins All” on her official social media.
Immediately after its release, fans and music enthusiasts, including UAENAs, showered praise on the visually stunning work directed by Uhm Tae-hwa. The intense performances from IU and BTS V instantly captivate viewers. Alongside this release, media release a guide to understanding the video and a brief interview with Director Uhm Tae-hwa .
“The reunion with IU is the most decisive thing. It was our collaboration after five years since 2018, so I was very impressed. Even two years ago, IU contacted me and we worked on a concert VCR and it motivated me to work harder. Similarly, this time, it was a project that reminded me of the joy of being on set. The universe itself is alien and abstract, unlike reality, so I welcome various interpretations based on different perspectives of the music video.”Director Uhm Tae-hwa
The existence of “square,” the thing that chases the main characters
The identity of “square” chasing V and IU nonstop is one of the discussions among fans. Some people say, “It’s like an alien force that comes to take over the world,” “It’s a zombie virus,” “A ghost that causes an odd phenomenon?” etc.
In fact, “square” means discrimination against the main characters, which can be interpreted as various kinds of discrimination and oppression in our daily lives.
The meaning of KEY ITEM “Camcorder”
Next, the appearance of the “camcorder” in every pre-promotional content also draws attention. The time setting in the video is present; the scenes captured by the camcorder show the beautiful world before it was ruined.
The camcorder lens is like a filter of love. It can also be viewed as an important device that allows us to see beautiful things beyond the characters’ internal and external aspects. In the world inside the camcorder, the two eat delicious food, confidently travel through spaces, and enjoy the happiness in their imagination while wearing an elegant dress and tuxedo. This world is beautiful and organized, unlike the chaotic reality.

Many netizens are also curious about the protagonists. This music video can be interpreted as a “dystopian world survival story of the one who cannot speak and the one who sees the world only with the left eye.” Looking closely at IU’s lips, a small chain hangs around, emphasizing the difficulties in communication with the world. V also wears a white lens in his left eye. Nevertheless, in a world ruined by “square,” they have no choice but to rely more on each other and try to overcome their wounds and exhaustion until the end.
Why do they wear a dress and tuxedo?
Lastly, the details of IU and V’s decision to pick a wedding dress and a tuxedo from the ruins also aroused keen interest. Here, the wedding dress and the tuxedo symbolize the “fruit of love.”
In the music video, the two enjoy their happiness wearing these clothes, taking pictures, singing, and having fun together. However, “square” eventually destroys them, leaving only the clothes they were wearing. On the last camcorder screen, the two were flying in the air, meaning they had gained freedom from oppression and pressure. The falling dress and tuxedo from the sky raise questions about whether these forms, considered significant and essential in reality, indeed reveal the essence.
