Reality shows are nothing without the drama that unfolds in some of television's most candid and unscripted moments. As of late, Netflix has picked up on quite the selection with varying genres to choose from. Though there’s a long list available, what seems to stand out are dating shows that are more often than not set on what viewers might presume as deserted islands.
In recent years, the streaming platform has come out with popular choices, such as Love Island and Too Hot to Handle. If you’re a sucker for this genre of entertainment, FYI, just last December 2021 a new show joined the streamer’s roster, and it hails all the way from the land of K-Dramas.
Single’s Inferno has been gaining traction on social media as of late. The South Korean reality show takes more of a wholesome spin on its concept, but still captures its very essence through some steamy exchanges and drama between the chosen contestants. Seemingly set on two islands, Inferno is located on Saseungbong-do, where contestants get to know each other on a surface level. With limited information about each other, they set out to impress one another solely by turning on their charms. Those lucky enough to match with their prospective partners are bound to get to know each other on a deeper and more personal level at Paradise Island, or Paradise Hotel and Resort, which is found near Incheon Airport.
Highlighting the bonds and relationships formed between the contestants, the eight-episode series is bound to surprise viewers with more twists and turns through each episode. The series was recently completed and is ready for your binge-watching pleasure on Netflix. But if this isn’t enough to convince you to add Single's Inferno to your watch list, then it's handsome cast should definitely do the trick
Meet the 9 main contestants of "Single's Inferno":
1. Kim Hyeon Joong

2. Moon Se Hoon
With his infectious charisma, it’ll be hard for you not to stan Moon Se Hoon throughout the series. In his everyday life in Seoul, he works as a culinary business owner. Having been in the industry for around six to seven years, he opened a restaurant in the famous area of Gangnam and has been running it for four years.
3. Shin Ji Yeon
