The anticipation surrounding this new on-screen duo surpassed even the excitement for the song itself. Watching them together was a sheer delight, thanks to their impeccable chemistry that tugs at your heartstrings and may even bring tears to your eyes by the end of the music video. IU’s vocals are nothing short of enchanting, effortlessly hitting powerful high notes. Despite the subdued energy of the track, it surprisingly exhibits a wide range. It evokes the feeling of a song one might encounter in a stage musical—a lullaby infused with as much theatrical drama as the composers could infuse into it.

Love Wins All unfolds as an epic ballad, weaving a narrative not just through its poignant lyrics but also the dynamic progression of its music. Commencing with a delicate and prudent piano introduction, the composition gradually crescendos, incorporating a lush strings accompaniment to elevate the impact of the sweeping chorus. As the song approaches its climax, emotions surge, culminating in a powerful and resonant finale that truly resonates. While the earlier choruses offer an engaging build and melody, it’s the transformative key change and explosive conclusion that ultimately reward the listener’s patience, solidifying the song’s effectiveness.

Though the ballad Love Wins All stands out on its own merit, its true magic unfolds when accompanied by its music video. The song seamlessly weaves into the poignant narrative captured in the visuals, creating a perfect symbiosis. The video, seemingly custom-tailored for the song unfolds a touching and tragic tale of two lovers navigating a post-apocalyptic world, evading an elusive malevolence. The duo seeks refuge in a building, offering a brief respite from their harrowing reality.

The narrative oscillates between relieving their past lives through a portable camera, a device bridging the gap between past and present, and presenting an alternate world where malice doesn’t prevail. The conclusion leaves a lingering thought that the concept could effortlessly transcend the confines of a music video and be expanded into a compelling short film, delving deeper into meaningful themes.

IU and V showcase their exceptional acting skills in the song, revealing a beautiful dimension to their performances that will leave you yearning to see them in a full-fledged K-drama. The poignant moment when the cube-like creature discovers them in the music video, and their efforts to protect each other evoke a deep emotional response, leaving you with a sense of melancholy as you hope their infectious smiles remain untarnished.
