Kim Se-jun may have entered Single’s Inferno S2 late, but he still became one of the season’s favorite contestants. He only arrived in Episode 6, but he was quick to steal viewers’ hearts — and fellow contestant Lee So-e! Everyone agrees that he’s a walking green flag, and here are just some of the reasons why he’s the greenest flag we’ve seen on reality TV.
He’s funny AF
Aside from being handsome, Se-jun has a great sense of humor. He can even tease his crush So-e while also being funny. And he’s also hilarious without trying too hard — even just the running gag of him sleeping without a care in Inferno makes viewers laugh.

He was honest about his feelings
During their alone time together, Se-jun didn’t mince words and straightforwardly told So-e about his feelings. He said that despite the rest of their castmates thinking they’re only close friends, he wants her to know that he doesn’t think of her like that — that he thinks of her as more than a friend. The way So-e blushed!
Sejun said that even though the whole cast thinks of Soe was just a close friend, he doesn’t think of her like that and that’s why he chose her. They are literally the precious duo #SinglesInferno2 pic.twitter.com/O6J0xEHzy8

He made her feel safe
Remember that helicopter ride? Se-jun noticed how So-e was looking a little nervous about riding the helicopter, so he held her hand and even gave her his suit jacket!
What touches me the most in this ep. is when sejun comforted soe. Soe was closing her eyes (I think she’s a bit scared) and sejun noticed it so he comforted her by holding and tapping her hand. Soe getting treatment she deserves. #LeeSoE #KimSeJun #SinglesInferno2 pic.twitter.com/cDXKQEZdAo

And he let her keep the jacket! Later, when the group sat around the campfire, So-e was still using Se-jun’s suit jacket to cover her lap. So sweet!

He gets so kilig about the little things
Case in point: when So-e unexpectedly held his hand.

He thinks she is adorable
Se-jun smiles at nearly everything So-e does, and even his fellow contestants noticed it.

He just wants happiness for his crush
When asked what he felt when So-e, the one he likes, went to Paradise with another guy, he simply said he was happy for her. “I think it’s good,” he said. “If she did what she was comfortable with, that’s good.” We love a guy who puts the girl first!
kim sejun set the standard so high he just wants soe to be happy and feel comfortable eventho soe doesn’t pick him that time. i believe they had great time pls give me unreleased clips of them in paradise!!!#SinglesInferno2 #SinglesInferno2Ep8 pic.twitter.com/NqkI6tsXSC

He didn’t want their relationship to be give-and-take
Se-jun didn’t want So-e to be pressured to pick him to go to Paradise, and he was glad when she didn’t, even telling her that. He didn’t want it to be an obligation and just wanted her to have fun.
this is exactly how I felt when ppl were criticising so-e for choosing hanbin over sejun. if she picked sejun it wouldve been as an obligation rather than her actually liking him. im glad sejun caught on to it too, these 2 are so compatible!#SinglesInferno2 #SinglesInferno2Ep9 pic.twitter.com/5ql6I8mpoy

He made his choice clear from the start
He never strayed from So-e and always encouraged her to be happy and bubbly like he knows she is.
“I keep having you on my mind. And I feel nervous whenever you are out of my sight.”
Sejun is like a character written by women: he is funny, considerate, caring, handsome and straightforward.#SinglesInferno2 #SinglesInferno2Ep10 pic.twitter.com/Ls6sNYYbI2

And that’s exactly why they got their happy ending to Paradise at the end of the show. And we love to see them interact outside the show!
