Netflix‘s new dating show, Single’s Inferno, is drawing in viewers, but some aren’t loving one of the contestants.
On Single’s Inferno, singles mingle on an island, called “Inferno,” in hopes to find their perfect match. The ultimate prize is love, but as an added bonus, couples are given alone time at a luxurious hotel, nicknamed “Paradise.” Since the beginning, Moon Se Hoon has had his heart set on going to Paradise with Shin Ji Yeon.
Over the course of the show, it became apparent to all the islanders, as well as to viewers, that Ji Yeon doesn’t want to couple up with Se Hoon. It also became clear that Se Hoon isn’t used to rejection.
Several castmates, most notably Kang So Yeon, tried to persuade Se Hoon is look elsewhere for love. Rather than listening, Se Hoon has continued to follow his heart — and a fortune-telling book that advised him to “keep trying.”
In Episode 6, An Yea Won predicted that Se Hoon would once again choose Ji Yeon as his Paradise date, but Ji Yeon disagreed. She had gotten the message across to him…right?
Wrong! Even with two new female castmates showing interest in him, Se Hoon chose Ji Yeon again.
Now, after having watched the Se Hoon x Ji Yeon saga for six episodes, viewers at home are fed up.

Netizens are describing Se Hoon’s behavior towards Ji Yeon as “creepy” and “dangerous,” while also criticizing his treatment of So Yeon.
sehoon is just a narcissist that can’t take no for an answer. that kind of obsession is so dangerous. plus how he’s been talking about girls being ‘pure’ and ‘innocent’ is just creepy. #singlesinferno

In Episode 5, So Yeon told Se Hoon that she is interested in being his potential partner. She also gave him point-blanket advice about Ji Yeon. Rather than accepting her advice, Se Hoon became angry, claiming So Yeon had hurt his pride.
soyeon being the only person giving a shit about sehoon and giving him good advice since he cant seem to read the room and he dares screaming at her and being that rude while trying to put turn the whole situation against her? yeah i want him gone!!!

sehoon is mad at soyeon for "hurting his pride" but like imagine how jiyeon felt when you kept making advances after clearly being rejected to the point where she lies about being sleepy to get away from you. soyeon was trying to help u, but u got offended?#singlesinfernoep5
