Following the release of the first episode of Transit Love 2, Jung Gyu Min was dubbed Gray, also known as one of the most popular producers and rappers in the Korean hip hop scene. This is because Gyu Min bears resemblance to Gray in terms of appearance, from their monolids to their sharp jawlines – even the shape of their eyebrows are similar.

Currently, he runs a private studio for his video production work. Take a look at this video he directed in 2020, which includes a bonus clip of Gyu Min parading his impressive singing skills.

In the 1st episode of Transit Love 2, Kim Tae I was the last participant to enter the premises. When he entered on a motorbike, he literally made the panel go wow. The best way to explain Tae I’s vibe is that he may look intimidating, but he’s really just a softie on the inside.

Prior to his current hustle as a barista and fashion brand editor, Tae I used to pursue acting under the stage name Kim In Shik. In 2016, he played a supporting role in the drama titled Monster, and acted alongside Ha Ji Won in Hospital Ship the following year. 

Fans of Tae I might anticipate his return to the small screen, but he has made it clear that he’s no longer pursuing acting.

Korean netizens are something else – an old photo of Tae I and Honey J, a professional dancer whose crew took home the first place in Street Woman Fighter, resurfaced as soon as the dating show was released.

It hasn’t been confirmed that they used to be in a relationship, but what matters is that Honey J is with a child and will be getting wed soon with a model. 

8. Park Won Bin

Park Won Bin’s tall physique and model-like face weren’t the only elements that made the panel favour him. Funnily enough, it was his name.

If you’re an ardent viewer of Korean movies, you would know the actor Won Bin. He became the ideal type of many women following the successful release of The Man From Nowhere, alternatively known as Ahjussi.

Park Won Bin is the exemplary puppy boyfriend: adorable, thoughtful, and sensitive. He’s not afraid to show his vulnerability to those around him, and he stays true to his own emotions. 

While other male participants went viral for their juicy dates and heated arguments with their exes, Won Bin captivated the hearts of many viewers for a completely different reason. He would spend hours watering the plants in their shared residential space and voluntarily do the chores without complaining. Protect this man at all costs. 

9. Nam Hee Doo

Thanks to his 187cm-tall muscular form, Nam Hee Doo gives off the oppa vibe despite being one of the younger participants in the dating show. It turns out that he’s a national team athlete for ice hockey, and he’s still actively playing on the rink.

Strong-headed and steadfast in his beliefs, Hee Doo showed off a hilarious chemistry – or the lack thereof – with his ex on the dating show. There are many relatable memes of them arguing floating around social media platforms, and we just can’t get enough. 

Hee Doo shared that he has only dated older women so far as he naturally gravitates towards women with a mature mindset. Could this be a hint? You’ll have to watch the show to find out.

Keeping the best for the last, Jung Hyeon Gyu has officially been named the noona killer despite being the last participant to join the dating show. When someone grabs his attention, he hones in on that one person and never looks back.

He’s currently studying in Seoul National University, which is the most prestigious university in South Korea. For a man with an IQ score of 156, this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Besides his responsibilities as a student, he’s also working on building a startup company with a group of friends.

The production crew was smart to use Hyeon Gyu as the dark horse. Indeed, the dating show has been thriving ever since he was added to the cast. 

To put it simply, he’s the embodiment of what a K-drama lead would look like and behave IRL. So if you’re contemplating giving the show a try, we’d say just go for it, even if it’s only to see Hyeon Gyu. 

Transit Love 2 cast facts

Packed with 20 episodes of highs and lows, Transit Love 2 is not a trashy or cringe-y dating show. Fluttering encounters and emotional moments aside, we can assure you that the cast will strike a chord with you regardless of your relationship status.
