With JB proving his immaturity as far as dating goes and Mir saying everything he shouldnt, the other guys hardly needed to do anything to maintain spotless images; but, Jun. K was very open with his personality and showed that he is completely obsessive. Now, this might be seen as a cute, and it certainly makes him seem human, but it seems doubtful that his managers would have wanted his image to include how obsessed he is with girls jumping up and down and the color yellow. Specific example aside, it was clear from the show that he fixates on things and thinks about them continuously, which is simply a personality trait, but not one he seems to be conscious of, so it is not something the fans would have seen on a scripted variety show. Hyung-sik is the only one who comes out unblemished, with nothing to be said about him other than that he seems to be a genuinely sweet, romantic, and thoughtful guy. If you are looking for a new bias, check him out, ladies (and gents).
The women maintained neutral images for the entire show, which is impressive considering the circumstances. They were all honest, so don’t mistake them not ruining their image as proof of the show being scripted, they simply seemed to know when to shut up when in front of the other people. Seung-ah went through the most difficulties in the show, hands down, and she maintained impressive composure up until the last episode, when she had an impressive break down. I’m not judging because I would have done the same thing she did, as ashamed as I am to admit it.
The least honest person, to me, seemed to be Hyejeong, because although she ended up with Jun. K, and he seemed to like her a lot, her feelings were always unclear. It may be that she was shy, or that the age difference affected her, but more than once it seemed that she was simply going along with the romance and not feeling it honestly herself. She clearly said in some of her interviews that being with Jun K. was somewhat burdensome, so her choosing him in the end seemed more like a default decision than anything.
