Throughout her time on Single’s Inferno 2, contestant Shin Seul Ki was undoubtedly the most popular among the male contestants on the show.

But many others appreciated her kindness to all the contestants during the show, appreciating her honesty in moments like when she rejected Shin Dong Woo.

And her final choice, which shocked most viewers, revealed a lot about her actual personality.
As Single’s Inferno 2 was airing, we reported that Seul Ki is actually from one of the wealthiest families in South Korea. Her father is one of the top plastic surgeons and owns a 20-story building in the Shinsadong district of Seoul.
Despite her affluent background, Seul Ki has continually proven her humility and kindness. Although her family has always supported her dreams of becoming a pianist, Seul Ki earned her own allowance once she was admitted to Seoul National University’s piano department.
Not only does Seul Ki earn money from winning piano competitions, but she has also worked as a page-turner and a pianist at church services and weddings.
Seul Ki has even shown off her generosity by donating 20,000 masks during the COVID-19 pandemic with money she had earned.
Even after Seul Ki’s appearance on Single’s Inferno 2 and her resulting popularity, she remains humble. She recently uploaded a picture to her Instagram to show that she was flying to Vietnam.
And some Reddit users immediately noticed that it appeared like she was flying economy versus spending more money on a more expensive ticket, like netizens might expect given her upbringing.
Seul Ki truly continues to show off her humility and kindness, which only makes netizens appreciate her more.
