“Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap!” Jinyoung of B1A4 almost shed a tear, too.
The most recent episode of Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap! made host Hong Seok Cheon cry.
Since Single’s Inferno 2 ended, we’ve been hooked on Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap!, which is a reality dating show based on the Webtoon-turned-K-Drama Love Alarm.
It has a similar plot: a dating app tells users if someone within 10 meters of them likes them romantically.
The eight contestants, who all go by nicknames, get to choose the two users in their “Love Alarm” app who they like.
One of the contestants, Jasmine, went viral after Episode 11 because she was so honest about how she felt.
She told the other contestants that she liked White Rose and wanted to go out with her, even though they thought they liked the same men.
Fans have been shipping the two, hoping that they will end up together. Still, scenes like the one below have made fans worry that they might stay “just friends” if White Rose doesn’t feel the same way.
Now, in Love Alarm Clap! Clap! Clap! Episode 12, the feelings have been returned. When White Rose rang Jasmine‘s Love Alarm, it was a pleasant surprise for everyone.
The girls looked so happy to be with each other. Even more so, the scene made the hosts happy.
Hong Seok Cheon‘s response is very moving. As he watched, he couldn’t help but cry.
Hong Seok Cheon also cried last week. So, the other hosts couldn’t help but make fun of him. But Jinyoung from B1A4 said he almost cried too!
Hong Seok Cheon was one of the first well-known people in South Korea who came out as gay. When he came out, he was not allowed to be on TV or radio for three years.
So, we can only imagine how important it is for him to see Jasmine and White Rose show their love for each other on the reality TV show.
