‘Single’s Inferno’ producers decided to let the contestants reveal their relationship status

According to Koreaboo in an interview with Wikitree, the show’s producers had no restrictions on the main cast and their social media. Producer Kim Jae-won revealed a rough timeline of when the show was filmed. She explained Single’s Inferno was filmed six months ago in July. But the producer is unwilling to reveal the relationship statuses of the couples that left together.

“I don’t believe it’s right for us to discuss whether the couples are still dating or not. It’s been six months since we concluded filming, so I’m sure they will individually update you all on their own channels. We decided to leave it up to them and their personal decisions,” said Kim.

His black and white statement leaves fans to believe that what they watched on the show might not be what happened in real life. Fans can agree that some contestants were a good pair while others picked the wrong partner.

The Single’s Inferno contestants have been quiet on their Instagrams regarding the relationships developed on the show. But fans’ sleuthing had led to some promising evidence.

Are An Yea-won and Cha Hyun-seung friends or something more?
