In a delightful twist of creativity, fans of K-pop sensations IU and BTS's V have taken their on-screen romance to a whole new level, turning it into a meme-worthy phenomenon. The duo starred as lovers in IU's recent music video for the heart-rending track "Love Wins All," an instant chart-topper.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the five-minute video depicts IU and V as a couple on the run from a menacing cube. Seeking refuge in an abandoned building, the pair indulges in whimsical fantasies, including heartfelt singing, capturing cute photobooth moments, and donning wedding attire.
On January 29, a fan's post on Twitter went viral for ingeniously encapsulating their on-screen relationship. Using the popular meme featuring two water dispensers resembling a bride and groom, user @sb_dlwlrma humorously linked it to IU and V, questioning, "Love wins all??"
The responses to the post were equally amusing, with some humorously dubbing it "exclusive footage from their parents' wedding." Others interpreted the meme as a collective coping mechanism to deal with the emotional turmoil of the music video's poignant ending.

Fans even speculated that the water dispenser symbolism might be the hidden ending of the heart-wrenching video. Instead of succumbing to the cube's threat, IU and V, in this imaginative narrative, are playfully "reincarnated as water fillers."
