So you’re Kang So-yeon…
Her style: So-yeon acts like a big sister among the group because she’s the eldest and has an assertive personality. So-yeon interrogated her love interest Jin-taek when he was forced to choose a different partner. She also sparked a heated discussion with Se-hoon for obsessing over Ji-yeon. Fashion-wise, So-yeon is not afraid to experiment with bright solid colors in her daytime wear. While at the hotel, she dressed down, reflecting her bold and carefree personality.
Her edge: Athletic, introspective, loyal, sincere
Our tips: Let go of your urge to nag. Instead, try to have constructive communication with your love interest.
So you’re An Yea-won…
Her style: Yea-won is always around the girls, sleeping next to them, sharing their worries and offering advice. In her pursuit for romance, Yea-won had her eyes on Jun-sik from the beginning. She playfully flirted with Hyun-seung too in a cute and half-joking way. Despite her love for sports, her wardrobe leaned towards formal dressing with ruffles, which shows her diverse lifestyle.
Her edge: Athletic, caring, passionate, fun-loving
Our tips: Yea-won saw the bigger picture of the game, so she didn’t get hung up with details, like how she wasn’t the most popular contestant on the show. Thanks to her clear thinking and determination, Yea-won secured a compatible partner in the end. Be like Yea-won!
So you’re Kim Su-min…
Her style: Su-minis the girl next door. She didn’t show resentment when her love interest Se-hoon was picked up by Min-ji, and she asked Si-hun to go with her to Paradise City so he would feel less alone. Su-min loves light-colored chiffon dresses which reflect her sweet personality.
Her edge: Sweet, gentle, considerate
Our tips: Su-min didn’t pair up with a partner, but she left a good impression on the audience. If the timing and conditions for romance aren’t right, wait patiently until they are and then seize the opportunity.
So you’re Seong Min-ji…
Her style: Min-ji seemed hard to approach, competitive and perhaps a little spoiled initially. However, she later showed a fun side as she revealed her love for playing video games and listening to hip-hop, as well as her desire to drink soju and eat pork belly on the island.
Min-ji’s feminine wardrobe strikes a fun and surprising contrast to her cool personality, making her all the more intriguing.
Her edge: Enigmatic, fierce, determined, sophisticated, playful
Our tips: Bring your amiable and fun-loving sides to the fore! Also, being too hard to approach may turn away a potential suitor. Use your enigma to attract and woo your romantic hopeful.
So you’re Ji’s song…
Her style: Ji-a is a natural flirt with her charming pick-up lines from “Oppa” to “Let’s go puppy.” She wears clothing that accentuates her figure, and her makeup and accessories also create a sexy, eye-catching look. Everything about her seems perfectly planned, but she pulls it all off in an effortless manner.
Her edge: Stylish, charming, determined, flirty
Our tips: Ji-a knows how to play the game. From time to time, she reaffirms her preference for her first choice romantic interest, while still remaining open to other suitors. This may make others jealous, so make sure you have BFFs to turn to support!
So you’re Shin Ji-yeon…
Her style: Ji-yeon is the girl next door who is studying for a neuroscience degree at the University of Toronto. She’s clear about what she likes, and also showed a soft side when Se-hoon wooed her. Ji-yeon makes a sweet impression in cute floral dresses and aegyo puppy eye makeup.
Her edge: Sweet, girly, determined
Our tips: If you feel like you’re in a romantic route, look around and keep trying. Never say never!
