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.
Kim Jun-sik was the least problematic contestant on ‘Single’s Inferno’
Certain couples on the dating reality show got more screen time than others. While fans believed Yea-won deserved better, she found a partnership with Jun-sik.

During Jun-sik’s time on Single’s Inferno, fans liked him. Jun-sik did not cause problems and was kind to everyone on the show. During the show’s finale, he chose Yea-won as his leading lady. Despite fans seeing a spark between her and Cha Hyun-seung, they were content that Jun-sik and Yea-won left together.
