When it came to “green flags” during this series of Single’s Inferno, Park Min Kyu was the perfect example of a gentleman with visuals to match.
Recently, Min Kyu made hearts flutter with his behavior towards fellow contestant Yun Ha Jeong.
On January 15 (KST), Min Kyu posted a photo on his Instagram (that had previously been shared by Ha Jeong). In the photo, the two were at Gwan Hee‘s basketball game, and Min Kyu made fans’ hearts flutter as he seemed to be covering Ha Jeong’s face while she was drinking water as if he was protecting her.
In the comments, Min Kyu clarified that he was being a true gentleman covering Ha Jeong’s face because she wasn’t wearing any makeup. If that wasn’t cute enough, when an OP commented, ” [Ha Jeong] still beautiful, right?” he replied, “sure thing.”
If that wasn’t cute enough, when Ha Jeong pointed out that it was good manners, Min Kyu hilariously joked that he had been upgraded from “helicopter shirt guy.”
Of course, he was referring to the time he allowed Min Ji to use his shirt to dry her tears when they were on the helicopter.
Yet, as heart-fluttering as it was, many thought it secured Min Kyu’s status as being in the “friend zone.” Whether it was covering Ha Jeong’s face or allowing Min Ji to use his shirt to wipe her tears, Min Kyu always showcased that he was a true gentleman.

While many think it’s just showcasing their friendship, many hope that Min Kyu will find his happy ending.
