Who Are “Tae Joon” And “Ji Hye” Mentioned In BTS V’s Latest Instagram Update?

There’s a story behind those names.

Following the successful release of “Love Wins All,” IU and her music video co-star BTS‘s V have been sharing various behind-the-scenes bits with their fans.

In his latest Instagram update, featuring pictures from the MV’s most-loved “photobooth” scene, V mentioned two names in the caption: Tae Joon and Ji Hye.

Tae Joon and Ji Hye. I hope you’re both happy.

— V

So who are Tae Joon and Ji Hye?

The names actually come from a long-time IU fan, whose Instiz post went mega-viral not too long ago. In the post, the fan—so completely mesmerized by the MV and the chemistry between the two idols—said that they no longer recognize IU and V for who they are…

…but only as the desperately-in-love couple, fighting against the evil cube.

In fact, the fan even explained that in their mind, the couple’s names are Tae Joon and Ji Hye for some inexplicable reason!

I see them as Ji Hye and Tae Joon from the music video. (I don’t actually know them, but in my mind, that’s what their names are.)

Just looking at the pictures breaks my heart. You know what I mean?

The post received a tremendous amount of attention, with thousands of BTS and IU fans agreeing with the sentiment of having their lives so helplessly dominated by the MV—and the names, too!

In fact, I can almost hear the song playing in my head right now… I’m going to go listen to it again!”

And it seems the post has reached BTS’s V!

Following V’s playfully-appreciative post, the fan who originally named the two MV characters reacted with absolute bamboozlement!

Ji Hye and Tae Joon… I just came up with those names while watching the MV and getting way too into it. I can’t believe this is happening…?! Haha, I’m so bamboozled right now. I wish all the best for #Love_wins_all!
