1. A method for decoding a bitstream for a video signal, the method performed by a decoding apparatus and comprising:
obtaining inter prediction information for a current block in a merge mode; and
performing an inter prediction for the current block based on the obtained inter prediction information,
wherein obtaining the inter prediction information for the current block in the merge mode comprises:
constructing a merging candidate group comprising a plurality of merging candidates including neighboring blocks adjacent to the current block,
adding a combined merging candidate to the constructed merging candidate group, the combined merging candidate being obtained by allocating inter prediction information of a first merging candidate to inter prediction information for L0 prediction and allocating inter prediction information of a second merging candidate to inter prediction information for L1 prediction,
obtaining merge index information from the bitstream, the merge index information indicating a merging candidate of the plurality of merging candidates or the combined merging candidate in the merging candidate group, and
determining the inter prediction information for the current block as inter prediction information of the merging candidate indicated by the merge index.
