Single’s Inferno 2 just got hotter.
Netflix‘s hit Korean dating show Single’s Inferno recently returned for its second season, introducing us to a new group of singles hoping to find love on the deserted island “Inferno.”
At the end of Episode 3, we were introduced to the 10th contestant, a new man, Kim Jin Young. He shook things up by showing up at the end of the men’s game to win a meal with two women of their choice, and he shocked everyone (except Shin Seul Ki) by effortlessly beating his competitors.
Needless to say, we were all impressed, especially the ladies on the show, and almost everyone is hoping for their chance to get to know him better. He appears not only handsome but cool, calm, and collected.
Viewers’ response is similar to those on the show, except many are pointing out his similarities to one of the hottest K-Pop idols, BTS‘s maknae Jungkook.

It’s not merely his appearance, though. They are definitely not doppelgangers, but there are many similarities, such as his hairstyle and sleeve of tattoos.
Moreso, it’s the overall vibes. In his introduction, Kim Jin Young self-describes himself as a shy guy, but he is fun once you get to know him. Similarly, Jungkook is a known introvert but still enjoys having fun.
Kim Jin Young enjoys motorcycling and exercising. Jungkook is a total gym buff too, and while we do not know for certain he has a motorcycle, ARMYs have been suspicious.
Also, when Kim Jin Young showed up and demolished his competition… That totally puts us in mind of Jungkook and how he could tackle anyone at any competition at ISAC (Idol Star Athletics Championships).
What do you think about the new guy?
