1) Single's Inferno

Single's Inferno has become a sensation among fans of Korean reality TV all over the world. The series marked its territory as the first Korean unscripted series to break into Netflix's Top 10.

In each season, a group of attractive singles finds themselves on an isolated island known as "Inferno." There, they try to form bonds with each other. If a couple manages to pair up, they earn the chance to enjoy a luxurious overnight date at a nearby hotel, dubbed "Paradise." So far, there have been 3 seasons of this immensely popular series.


2) Love Transit/ EXchange

This widely-watched dating show offers former couples an opportunity to either reconcile or explore new romantic connections. The show features pairs of exes who reside together in a communal house on Jeju Island.

Despite their shared history, the former couples are required to interact as strangers while mingling with other housemates and embarking on dates, introducing an additional element of intrigue to the unfolding drama.

3) Heart Signal

In this dating show, single women and men cohabitate in a house for a month in pursuit of romance. Each night, a covert message is dispatched among the singles. A panel of relationship specialists anticipates who will discover love and who might be more compatible as friends.

As of now, this popular series has aired 4 seasons since 2017.


4) Pink Lie

Debuting in October 2022, Pink Lie is a dating show where young men and women reside in the Pink House, each harboring a lie about themselves. This lie can be about anything, including (but not limited to) their age, education, and job.

Their objective is to seek a partner who can genuinely perceive them as they are. As relationships develop, the true identities of the participants emerge, navigating the delicate balance between love and reality.
