Oh Jin-taek and Kang So-yeon were the ‘it’ couple on ‘Single’s Inferno’

When Jin-taek arrived on the island in Single’s Inferno, he surprised the other contestants with his looks and tan skin. Not to mention his impressionable facial hair. During his bio interview, he was looking for a partner who was sexy, healthy, and someone to have a fiery romance with.

Fans immediately noticed he gravitated toward So-yeon, who embodied many of the qualities he was looking for. They stuck by each other throughout Single’s Inferno, and fans were eager to see them to the end. But the couple had a few hiccups when Jin-taek chose someone else to go to Paradise with the second time around.

Why did Jin-taek do it? He felt So-yeon was no longer interested in him as she was not upfront with her feelings. A discussion between the two resolved the problem and helped understand each other. Fans knew they would leave the island together by the finale of Single’s Inferno.

In a Q&A interview on the Youtube channel SunnydahyeIn, Ji-taek answers some fan questions. He was asked what contestant he would like more if he met outside the show. Jin-taek quickly answered So-yeon and explained, “because my feelings for So-yeon were sincere from the beginning.”

His following response even had the interviewer swooning in awe. “Even if it’s outside the island, I’ll choose So-yeon,” said Jin-taek. The interviewers then asked the big question fans were dying to hear the answer to. Is Jin-taek dating So-yeon?
