Netizens believe they found the real reason why Single’s Inferno 2 star Lee So E kept winning the women’s games despite it requiring so much physical strength.
For most of the season, it appeared that Lee So E was having little to no luck on the show. She not only received 0 postcards but was only interested in Jo Yoong Jae, but he rejected her for Choi Seo Eun.
Of course, if you’ve watched the finale and have kept up with the cast on social media since, you know that So E found her happy ending with Kim Se Jun. So, all is well.
Yet, So E was surprisingly “lucky” in some of the games, or that’s at least what it seemed.
In Episode 2, the women competed in a “chicken fight” challenge to win a special meal date in Inferno with two men of their choice. To play, you must grab and hold one foot, remaining balance, while attacking others until you’re the last one standing.
So E and Park Se Jeong were strategic in waiting to the side while the other women competed rather than risk losing in the crowd. To their surprise, they ended up being the last two standing.
Se Jeong and the others were clearly concerned for So E considering her and Se Jeong’s size difference. Se Jeong is one of the tallest contestants, while So E is the smallest.
Despite this, So E maintained her balance and beat Se Jeong, who fell to the sand.
The panelists were in shock that of all the contestants, So E was the one to win. They were so excited by her victory.
So E’s fellow contestants were also in disbelief. Everyone thought it was the most unexpected result.
Similarly, in Episode 7, the women contestants competed against one another in Korean wrestling for a chance to go to Paradise with the man of their choice.
This time, So E fought against Shin Seul Ki, who is a similar size. Still, So E easily won.
Again, her fellow Single’s Inferno 2 contestants were surprised that So E managed to win first place.
Now, Single’s Inferno 2 fans believe they have found why So E was winning all the athletic games despite being the smallest cast member at 5’2″ ft (158 cm).
Everyone is familiar now that So E is a skilled actress. She has recently appeared in Netflix K-Dramas The Glory and Hellbound.
Yet, So E is also going viral for her many others talents. Netizens recently discovered that she is also a great singer.

That’s not all, though. As So E mentioned in her introduction video in Episode 1, she likes to dance.
But what little Netflix showed us didn’t do So E justice. Netizens were amazed to discover So E’s real dance skills in resurfaced videos.

So E proved to be incredibly flexible with an outstanding balance in the clips. Netizens are realizing that her history in dance must have prepared her for the Single’s Inferno 2 challenges. Dance is as athletic as any sport!
Lee So E might be clumsy in everyday life, but when she sets her mind to an activity, she kills it!
