Single’s Inferno 2 finally came to an end, but netizens loved watching Korean singletons trying to find love. While many found love or a connection straight away, one person who didn’t always have the easiest times on the show was Lee So E.
On the surface, So E should’ve had the easiest time finding love with her visuals, charm, and innocence.
Despite her visuals and charming personality, So E had one of the toughest journeys on the show. While Lee So E’s luck might not have started great, many believe she ended the series as one of the luckiest contestants in the series.
Although her journey wasn’t easy, after having to forget her feelings towards Jo Yoong Jae, things looked up after the arrival of Kim Se Jun. From the very beginning, he always had feelings for So E and wasn’t afraid to hide them.
Throughout the episodes, he made sure to showcase his feelings for So E, whether it was in the small gestures or how he spoke about her to the other contestants.
Yet, alongside Se Jun, she had another man in her corner: Kim Han Bin. While many people were shocked when So E picked Han Bin to go to “Paradise” with her instead of Se Jun, it wasn’t for romantic feelings.
So E was always close with Han Bin and their time in “Paradise” allowed So E to try and come to terms with her feelings. At the same time, Han Bin was there to give advice and have a good time with his bestie.
Even in the episodes themselves, So E and Han Bin had such a great friendship and seemed comfortable around each other.
In particular, the final episode showcased how lucky So E was.
When Han Bin was going to the woman he chose, he made sure to speak to So E. Yet, rather than a form of rejection from either contestant, it was a moment where the duo showcased their firm friendship. From the minute they held each other’s hands…
To the moment they wished each other well, it was proof that So E and Han Bin had created a friendship for life.
The support and advice from Han Bin throughout allowed So E to give love another chance, and eventually, she found her “Prince Charming” with Se Jun.
When the series ended, netizens couldn’t get enough of the fact that So E ended up with two of the best men on the island, one as a partner and the other as a best friend. Se Jun and Han Bin were always fan favorites, and she deserved all the attention and care that they gave her.
