South Korea's answer to Bachelor in Paradise has finally returned. The second season of Single's Inferno premiered on Netflix on December 13, 2022, after the first round of the dating show introduced fans to several star influencers looking to find love. For anyone who's still catching up, the variety series is filmed on an uninhabited island south of the country, where contestants are dropped off in "Inferno" and left to make connections while cooking all their meals and fetching their own water. If a couple like each other and pair up, they can escape to "Paradise," spending the night in a luxury hotel where they can explore their connection.

Though Single's Inferno offers a slower pace and fewer clandestine hookups than your Too Hot to Handles and Love Islands, the dramas that build among the charming cast are super engrossing. There's also an element of mystery, as the cast is forbidden from telling each other their career or age until they get to Paradise. Basically, if you're a fan of K-drama slow burns and relatable reality stars, this series is a must-watch.

Speaking of relatable stars, the season 2 cast ranges from fitness enthusiasts to university students to a pageant queen. Read on to learn about the faces of Single's Inferno 2. Spoilers ahead for the ending of Single's Inferno 2.
