Single’s Inferno 2‘s endgame couple gained strong popularity after the show concluded. The couple made of Yoong Jae and Seo Eun showed strong loyalty to each other through the 8 episodes, winning the hearts of audiences.
Due to their strong popularity, they decided to host a joint fan meeting in February 2022. Priced at ₩77,000 KRW (about $62.20 USD) for 80 minutes, they promised to spill the beans on more behind-the-scenes exclusives and more.
They began to receive huge flak for the announcement. A tweet about the fan meeting began to get ratioed severely as many were against it.

The price was one thing up for contention. As both are considered non-celebrities in the eyes of Koreans, they questioned the need for a fan meeting.
Arent’ they both just regular folks? Who would pay ₩77,000 KRW (about $62.20 USD) to see regular people act lovey-dovey? Are they doing this because people were responding positively to the free post on IG… It’s because it was free that people responded.
둘 다 그냥 일반인 아님?
일반인 꽁냥대는걸 77000원보고 누가 봄?

Others were surprised to see that there was a demand for it.
I’m surprised to see there’s demand… They should just focus on dating quietly, why a fan meeting?
수요가 있다는게 신기할 뿐… 걍 조용히 연애에나 집중하지 뭔 팬미팅.. https://t.co/gz4L3KbKgU

Some were baffled at the fact that the couple were giving out autographs. As non-celebrities, it would be odd to have autographs.
Are they celebrities for them to be giving out autographs? I haven’t watched the show but was it so popular that they can do fan meetings? Are they on the level of celebrities?
친필사인이라니 이분들 연예인이심? 솔로지옥 안 본 사람인데 이렇게까지 인기 있고 팬미팅 할 정도로 연예인급임?? https://t.co/kfmeinlvbo

Despite this, there are still ardent fans of the show who support the two’s relationship.
