Singer IU changes the title of her pre-released song to ‘Love wins all.’

On the 19th, the agency EDAM Entertainment announced, “As of today, the title of IU’s pre-released song ‘Love Wins’, which is scheduled to be released at 6 PM on the 24th, will be changed to ‘Love wins all.’”

Previously, on the 16th, EDAM Entertainment released the main poster for ‘Love Wins’, which shows BTS V and IU sitting across from each other, and some sexual minorities raised issues.

‘Love Wins’ is a phrase used by sexual minorities as a slogan when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage was constitutional on June 26, 2015. It was also used to express support for sexual minorities during the 2016 shooting incident at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, USA. Accordingly, some sexual minorities expressed dissatisfaction with the use of the phrase to depict heterosexual love.

In relation to this, EDAM Entertainment stated the reason for changing the song title, saying, “We accept concerns that the important message will be obscured by the title of this song, and we want to further respect and support everyone who lives and loves in various ways.”

He continued, “If there is a word that is most opposed to the message contained in the song to be released, it would be ‘hatred.’ This was also mentioned in detail in the track intro released on the 18th. “I sincerely hope that all love will win in a world without hate, and that the meaning of this song will be conveyed without hurting anyone,” he added.

IU’s pre-released song ‘Love Wins All’ will be released at 6 PM on the 24th.
