Who is ‘Singles Inferno’s’ Kim Jun-sik?

Fans of the dating reality show got to know about Jun-sik’s backstory and career during his trip to Paradise with An Yea-won in episode 4. He is the owner of a health products company, Kamee. The CEO founded the company during his junior year in college. Being 28-years-old, he has run the company for roughly seven years.

His company’s main products are locally sourced wild-simulated ginseng from Pyeongchang and processed into honey.

Besides running the company, Jun-sik is also a fitness enthusiast and spends a lot of time in the gym. He shows off his impressive physique on Instagram.

Kim Jun-sik speaks almost perfect English in an Instagram video

As a Korean dating reality show, the contestants of Single’s Inferno had no reason to speak English or any other language. Fans had no idea Jun-sik had a cool trick up his sleeve. After the finale, Netflix sent the contestants of Single’s Inferno and Jun-sik “Thank You” packages.

Each contestant posted photos on social media and unboxing videos of the goodies Netflix sent them. Jun-sik posted on Jan.1 a short video on his Instagram with a cute way of thanking the streaming platform. Dressed in a three-piece suit, Single’s Inferno’s Jun-sik sat between a large version of the iconic N and the gift boxes.

What fans never expected was Jun-sik to deliver his ‘Thank You’ message in English. Using the letter N, he listed off positive words like New Year, next-generation, non-stop, nonpareil, noteworthy, and more before ending with Netflix. It is not uncommon for Koreans to learn English as a mandatory language in school.

Fans are impressed with Jun-sik’s perfect pronunciation and almost non-existent accent. Jun-sik’s time on Single’s Inferno did not hint at his linguistic abilities. Being a businessman, it could be that Jun-sik saw the value of learning the language when dealing with international clients.
