“Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap!” Host Hong Seok Cheon Breaks Down In Tears Watching Jasmine And White Rose In New Episode
Host Hong Seok Cheon broke down in tears watching the latest episode of Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap!.
Since Single’s Inferno 2 concluded, we’ve been hooked on Wavve‘s reality dating show Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap!, which is based on the Webtoon-turned-K-Drama Love Alarm. It follows a similar plot: a dating app communicates to users if someone within ten meters has romantic feelings for them. The eight contestants, all appearing under a nickname, get to select the two users they have feelings for in their “Love Alarm” app.
One of the contestants, Jasmine, went viral for how honestly she showed her feelings in Episode 11. She revealed that she liked one of the other women contestants, White Rose, and wanted to date her, although others thought they liked the same men.
YO WHITE ROSE USED ALL THE HEARTS SHE GOT BEFORE TO HAVE THE HIGHEST DATE COURSE WITH JASMINE??!?!?!:@;&
(I’m assuming their date is gonna be out of this world) https://t.co/rse0sFXPvb

Naturally, viewers have been shipping the two, hoping they will be endgame. Yet, scenes like the one below have had fans concerned they might remain “just friends” if White Rose did not reciprocate romantic feelings.
“When you like someone, do you really need a reason? It’s not like you can change how you feel” #lovealarmclapclapclap #lgbtq #bisexual #wlw #jasmine #whiterose #jasmineandrose #jasmineandwhiterose #lovealarmccc #lovealarmclapclapclapep11 #kdatingshow #kvarietyshow #lovealarmcccedit #lovealarmdatingshow
Now, in Episode 12 of Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap!, the feelings have officially been reciprocated. Everyone was pleasantly surprised when White Rose rang Jasmine’s Love Alarm.
The girls were clearly so happy to be together. The hosts were even happier to see the scene.

Last week, Hong Seok Cheon cried as well. So, his fellow hosts couldn’t help but tease him. Yet, B1A4‘s Jinyoung confessed he nearly cried too!
Hong Seok Cheon was one of the first openly gay celebrities in South Korea. When he came out, he was actually banned from broadcasts for three years. So, we can only imagine how meaningful it is for him to see Jasmine and White Rose publicly express love for each other in the reality TV show.
