Since the finale, it appeared that our Arabtofu couple (fans’ nicknames for them) was going strong. He updated his Instagram with adorable selfies, including So E, breaking his feed’s aesthetic. Some comments made by him and his friends seemed to indicate that he and So E were happily dating too.
Please show a lot of love to So E~ She’s a very kind kid. Please give her lots of love.

So E and Se Jun might not have been publicly interacting as much as fans would like, but we were all hopeful for their relationship, especially with the cast’s recent live broadcasts.
Soe knows Sejun is still sleeping HAHAHA
Nadine: Is Sejun awake?
Soe: Sejun and Jinyoung went ig live at 5am/6am, so he's still sleeping. 😂 #kimsejun#leesoe #ArabTofu #SinglesInferno2 pic.twitter.com/saAzHyDRIv

Yet, Se Jun’s recent solo live broadcast has fans concerned that he and So E are no more…

One of Se Jun’s Ascottage coworkers and friends, Jay Lee (@mrleegent on Instagram), has become known as the “President of Arabtofu fanclub.” He was one of the first to update us with a photo of the couple.
He also responded to many fans’ comments. So, he shipped them more than anyone.
But during Se Jun’s latest Instagram Live, Jay Lee told fans commenting that Se Jun doesn’t know where she is because she is “busy.”
Idk u guys but i think y'all should stop asking where soe is. PLEASE JUST DON'T. Sejun already said a while ago that she probably is at her home, and mrlee said this. STOP

Se Jun did mention So E during the Instagram Live, but the way he referred to her was surprising. They’re clearly still on very good terms as he said, “I pretty her,” meaning he treats her well. Yet, he called her his dongsaeng and proceeded to praise the entire Single’s Inferno 2 cast.
So E is my treasured dongsaeng. I treat her well. Seriously. To be honest, all of the cast from Singles Inferno are very nice. They’re very kind and they’re all very pretty and handsome, so I hope everyone works out well…
— Kim Se Jun
He just said that So-e is his very precious little sister. Okay. As long as both of you are happy now. #SinglesInferno2 #KimSejun #LeeSoe #Arabtofu pic.twitter.com/QylqsEnN3j

While women can use oppa (“older brother”) both platonically and romantically toward an older male, dongsaeng is never used romantically. It’s a gender-neutral term for a younger brother/sister and is usually used when talking about a younger sibling, acquaintance, friend, or underclassman.
So, Single’s Inferno 2 fans are interpreting Se Jun’s recent statement about So E to mean they are “just friends.” Many are low-key disappointed…
Sejun on the next morning realising he got less tagged ig stories abt him and soe lmaaoo. yeppp sejun people packing their bags rn

Still, some remain hopeful since they are clearly on good terms. They believe that since So E is just beginning her acting career, they will get back together after she is more established.
i just think MAYBE soe is still not ready for a deep relationship with him, bcs we can tell how whipped sejun was in SI to her. both soe sejun got loooong way to go, they will cherish e/o in a future. this is still a good thing that both parties are in a good term 🏼 https://t.co/L4jWIy40uH
