Single’s Inferno has managed to make it to a third season. Contestants are stranded on an island and have to complete challenges while trying to hook up with other players to escape to Paradise, all in a uniquely South Korean way that similar shows in the West might not get away with. With the locations of the islands involved being an integral part of the show, here’s a quick feature that explores where Single’s Inferno is filmed and provides some background on the production.

Where is Single’s Inferno filmed?

Inferno Island, where the contestants are forced to cook their own meals and battle for survival, is Saseungbong-do, which you can find in Incheon’s Ongjin County. Saseungbong-do, also known as Sado, is deserted and is also a private island, but it is possible to travel there and visit the areas where the show’s first seasons were filmed.

The island itself is pretty small. All in all, it is around 4km long and 2km wide but the location and size were perfect for the production team’s needs. If you do make the journey to see it for yourself, there is a boat in Incheon that regularly takes visitors to see where the action takes place.

When the couples manage to escape the Inferno, they head quite literally to Paradise, and the venue for their romantic liaison is the beautiful Paradise Hotel and Resort, in Paradise City, Jung-Gu, Incheon. Located near Incheon International Airport, the resort is roughly about an hour from Seoul, and it has a high rank on travel sites. The venue includes everything you could possibly want from a luxury hotel, including Michelin-star restaurants, spas, and even a safari park and a casino.

What is the format of Single’s Inferno?

Single’s Inferno is a dating show mixed with a survival show, and twelve singles are encouraged to find a love interest on the island. If they hook up, they get to leave the island for a more idyllic setting.

Throughout the show, the players form relationships as they get to know each other and have to take part in challenges too. They are not allowed to discuss their age or what they do off the island, and they cannot use their phones or electronics while on the island. The object is to date people and win the challenges so they can escape the island.

Some changes were made for the third season of the show, probably in an attempt to mix things up a little for the players and the viewers. One of the new additions to the show features a zombie scenario, where the players have to survive a zombie attack like in Zombieverse.

Well, that escalated quickly.

Who are the panel on Single’s Inferno Season 3?

The panel on the third season of the show includes the return of original hosts Hong Jin Kyung, Lee Da Hee, Kyuhyun, and the rapper Hanhae, and in a surprise for fans, contestant Dex from the second season will join in the discussion too.

The panel reacts to what the players do on screen, and offers up their opinions and conjectures on what is happening.
