IU recently dropped the MV for her latest song, You and I, and some of you may have been a little confused as to what exactly happened in the MV (I know I was). Thankfully, Loen Entertainment helped us understand the turn of events.
IU plays the role of a 19-year-old girl who inhabits her grandfather’s room full of different machinery and objects. Also in the room is a young boy (played by Lee Hyun Woo), who is in a deep slumber (Sleeping Beauty, anyone?). The boy would waken once the girl had become an adult (presumably 20 years old in Korea), and when she discovered her grandfather’s design, she began working hard to speed up time.
If you noticed, IU stepped into a train where it showed images of the future, of her and the boy sharing the same future, and became determined in creating something that would expedite the process. That something turned out to be the time machine in which IU stepped into, hoping to become an adult to meet the love of her life.
However, that fateful day where the time machine was complete was also the same day where she became an adult. She stepped into the time machine at the same time that the boy woke up and by the time the boy discovered what had happened, she was already gone into the future. The boy was only able to catch a glimpse of her before she disappeared.
But don’t worry, fans, the two did indeed meet at the end. It’s kinda like the American movie, Lake House. Something like that. But after discovering the meaning behind the MV, I am in more love with the MV. So meaningful!
