Speaking of the idea behind the MV, Min Hee Jin wanted to focus on the singer’s simplicity behind his glorious front.
After the first watch, many netizens connect details from the MV with BLACKPINK Jennie. They claim that the bread-making scene is related to Jennie because the idol is a bread lover. Moreover, Yeontan – V’s pet dog – is also the same breed as Jennie’s pet dog Kuma: they are both Pomeranians. Hence, they believe the MV is dedicated to Jennie in some way.
