Jin Young asked Se Jun if he noticed his reaction during the helicopter ride. Jin Young also explained to him that he was so shocked due to the skinship.
Did you see my face during the helicopter ride? I really thought there was something. I was so shocked.
— Kim Jin Young
Se Jun laughed. He revealed that he did not know Jin Young’s shocked reaction until watching the cast’s Netflix reaction video to Single’s Inferno 2.
Se Jun apologized, although Jin Young said he didn’t find it offensive but rather “nice.” Se Jun didn’t want anyone to misunderstand, though. So, he explained that he did not have “motive,” meaning he didn’t want to touch So E just to initiate skinship with her.
It was nice to see, Se Jun.
— Kim Jin Young
Se Jun quickly became embarrassed, so he stuttered through his explanation that So E appeared scared. Jin Young understood, suggesting, “So, something like calming pill…”
I held her hand not because I had ‘motive.’ …So E looked scared.
— Kim Se Jun
Se Jun recalled that he was actually quite tired, so he was going to rest his eyes on the way to Paradise when he sensed something was wrong. He looked over at So E, who was clearly nervous, so he did his best to reassure her.
If you look at the moment again… To be honest, I was about to close my eyes. I wanted to sleep. Then when I closed my eyes, I could feel something weird next to me. I was like, ‘What’s that?’ and I saw her. She was scared, so I (reassured her), ‘It’s okay,’ ‘The ride is not scary…’
— Kim Se Jun
Se Jun defended himself again, saying he was not trying to hold her hand flirtatiously. He was simply trying to calm her down.
Kim Se Jun: It’s not that I held her hand just like that. So, that’s why.
Kim Jin Young: Of course! I didn’t mean like that. Really. I never thought something like that. That was just… It was nice. I felt that way.
Se Jun is so sweet and thoughtful! He even lent her his jacket too.
