We left off with the arrival of a mystery new girl, and we return with the boys wasting no time to make her acquaintance.

The boys crane their necks towards the cafeteria and say "Yes, someone's there. Shall we?"

Se-hoon leads the pack, fresh off the heels of a very interesting conversation with So-yeon.

The new girl's name is Kim Su-min, and she's so adorable.

Se-hoon takes charge of the conversation, asking her if she's ever been to Paradise, which she obviously hasn't.

Se-hoon says "Let's go together sometime," and someone answers "That's a cute pick-up line"

He says neither has he and they should go sometime.

The girls approach, all dolled up to meet their competition.

Hyeon-joong says "Meet our Avengers"

So-yeon approaches and doesn't seem thrilled about the prospect of someone else catching Se-hoon's eye.

So-yeon looks uneasy in the cafeteria

It's dinnertime. Discussion of Su-min's arrival ensues, with Jin-taek suggesting she might be Si-hun's type.

Jin-taek says to Si-hun "I thought she might be your type"

Si-hun says he's right. Will she be able to sway his interest from Ji-a?

Se-hoon has Su-min close to his side, though. She feels guilty for not helping enough with dinner, but he tells her to relax.

Su-min looks up at Se-hoon and he tells her "It's okay"

And oddly enough, Ji-yeon does not like that.

Ji-yeon glares as someone tells her to make space for Su-min

I guess all Se-hoon had to do to get her attention was pay attention to another girl!

Netflix / Via Netflix

Su-min doesn't seem to notice the glares, sticking by Se-hoon's side and even fanning him when he says he's hot.

Su-min says to Se-hoon

She's so cute, honestly.

Netflix / Via Netflix

And So-yeon also isn't amused by Se-hoon and Su-min's teamwork, making egg soup.

So-yeon looks away, upset, as Se-hoon says that the soup will be delicious

The food looks great, thanks to everyone's team work. But Se-hoon is only interested in one person's opinion.

Is he just better at flirting in the kitchen or something?

After dinner, the singles are excited to find that the campfire area has been stocked with drinks and snacks.

Everyone holds a drink up and says "welcome"

They toast to Su-min's arrival.

Netflix / Via Netflix

Jin-taek is eager to have So-yeon sit next to him, even asking Ji-yeon to move aside and make room.

Jin-taek leans forward and says

Ji-yeon is really feeling left out tonight.

Netflix / Via Netflix

And then Hyeon-joong suggests a Q & A session, which gets very intense, very quickly.

Si-hun says "This is exciting' and grins

The boys ask Su-min what her type is and if anyone there is her ideal type, yes or no. She says yes.

Netflix / Via Netflix

Then SeSu-min wants to know what Se-hoon's ideal type is.

Jin-taek says

Se-hoon says he's attracted to those who can clearly express themselves. So, So-yeon then?

Netflix / Via Netflix

Se-hoon says he wants to pass the question to Si-hun, and asks if there's one specific person he likes.

Si-hun smiles smugly saying "I've already made up my mind"

To which he responds, "I've already made up my mind." Yeah, we know.

Netflix / Via Netflix

Si-hun asks Hyeon-joong the same question. Things are getting *spicy*.

Si-hun smirks and says

He answers with a simple yes.

Netflix / Via Netflix

Hyeon-joong steps the spice up and asks Ji-a the same question.

Hyeon-joong says I'd like to ask the same question to Ji-a

While she seems a bit bothered, she does answer "Yes."

Netflix / Via Netflix

And Si-hun takes that as a good sign, while Hyeon-joong seems to consider her answer and Si-hun's reaction.

Si-hun puts a hand to his heart and says

Not sure if he should be so confident.

Netflix / Via Netflix

Jia then puts Jin-taek is in the hot seat, but the master of smooth talk refuses to give a straight answer.

Jin-taek says,
Netflix / Via Netflix

His sly response doesn't go over So-yeon or Ji-yeon's heads.

So-yeon looks down nodding, saying

Back in their beds, So-yeon vents to Yea-won, Ji-a and Su-min.

So-yeon says

She tells everyone about her and Se-hoon originally sent postcards to each other, and asks Su-min if she'd still go for Se-hoon knowing that she wasn't the only one. Su-min says she would.

Netflix / Via Netflix

Meanwhile, Ji-yeon is trying to get attention back from Jin-taek...while they sit with Se-hoon.

Ji-yeon asks Jin-taek, "Didn't we go to bed early last night? Around midnight?"
Netflix / Via Netflix

But Jin-taek soon gets up, leaving her and Se-hoon alone.

Ji-yeon says "Well this is awkward"
Netflix / Via Netflix

They're not alone for long, though. Yea-won, wingwoman of the year, pulls Su-min out and pushes her to sit in between Ji-yeon and Se-hoon.

Yea-won pushes Su-min towards the campfire ans says "Sit in the center"
Netflix / Via Netflix

Ji-yeon says Su-min if she's tired, and Su-min smiles and asks, "Aren't you?"

Ji-yeon looks at a smiling Su-min and says "You must be really tired"

There are layers to this exchange. Ji-yeon is the one who gets up and goes to bed.

Netflix / Via Netflix

And while Si-hun sleeps, Ji-a and Hyeon-joong are chatting by the postboxes.

Ji-a says she's made up her mind while her and Hyeon-joong sit together

Jin-taek seeks out So-yeon for a chat, trying to make his intentions more clear. So-yeon makes her feelings clear, too.

So-yeon says "I know you're just following your heart, but I feel like you're playing with me"

I love that she stands her ground and doesn't let him walk all over her.

Netflix / Via Netflix

The next morning at breakfast, though, So-yeon has a small win when her wish for bananas comes true.

So-yeon says

Cue the "I really want some miso soup. Oh my god, miso soup!" TikTok sound.

Netflix / Via Netflix

The presence of bananas doesn't stop So-yeon from having an apple, which she pares with a knife while Jin-taek tries to avoid her gaze.

So-yeon says
Netflix / Via Netflix

After breakfast, Si-hun asks Ji-a to go for a walk with him, but she declines.

Si-hun walks away while Ji-a walks in the opposite direction, her back to him

So instead, he goes for a walk to get water with Su-min, his second choice.

Si-hun says to Su-min, "It's not easy, look at me all sweaty"

She's so happy to be there, and he tells her she's optimistic, like it's a bad thing.

Netflix / Via Netflix

So-yeon pulls Hyeon-joong aside to talk, asking his advice on the Jin-taek/Se-hoon situation.

Hyeon-joong says "Jin-taek doesn't like to say things that might hurt others"

He tells her before she makes any decisions, she should talk to Se-hoon, and offers to grab Se-hoon for her.

Netflix / Via Netflix

He calls for Se-hoon in front of Jin-taek, who was resting, but looks wide awake once he hears that So-yeon is asking for Se-hoon.

Se-hoon stands as Hyeon-joong says

Se-hoon says that he actually didn't like her tone in their conversation yesterday, and that admitting to sending her a postcard didn't mean anything.

Se-hoon says

He almost cried?!

Netflix / Via Netflix

So-yeon is pretty annoyed by the way this conversation is going.

Se-hoon says
Netflix / Via Netflix

Fed up, she finally tells him to just say he's not interested in her and get it over with.

So-yeon says
Netflix / Via Netflix

Before the conversation can get even more heated, they're interrupted by an announcement.

The announcement says "Participants, please come to the campfire"

Wonder what awaits them at the campfire...

Netflix / Via Netflix

Could it be? Another new girl?

Yea-won looks shocked and says
Netflix / Via Netflix

It is. Her name is Seong Min-ji.

A girl smiles and introduces herself saying "Hello, my name is Seong Min-ji"
Netflix / Via Netflix

And awkward–she's wearing the same top as Ji-yeon.

Min-ji laughs as someone points out that they're wearing the same top
Netflix / Via Netflix

But wait–that's not all!

Yea-won looks up and says
Netflix / Via Netflix

Surprise! It's a new guy! His name is Cha Hyun-seung.

Cha Hyun-seung smiles wide
Netflix / Via Netflix

And apparently, he's not a stranger to everyone.

Hyeon-joong says

He's a gym buddy of Hyeon-joong's, and was referred by a mutual friend to work with Ji-a, though they'd never met in person before. Interesting!

Netflix / Via Netflix

Hyun-seung says what everyone's thinking.

Hyun-seung smiles and says "Well this is awkward"
Netflix / Via Netflix

Then the announcer says all of the newcomers are each going to choose someone to take on a date on a boat today.

Min-ji asks all the guys to take off their sunglasses before settling on Se-hoon.

Netflix / Via Netflix

Su-min says she would have chosen Se-hoon if Min-ji hadn't, so instead, she chooses Jun-sik.

Su-min points and says Jun-sik
Netflix / Via Netflix

So-yeon and Yea-won are not happy with the girls' selections.

So-yeon touches her face and tries to smile
Netflix / Via Netflix

And of course, Hyun-seung goes for Ji-a.

Hyun-seung looks to Ji-a and says her name
Netflix / Via Netflix

Once again, Hyeon-joong is left to laugh at this cruel game.

Hyeon-joong looks down and says "This is so cruel"
Netflix / Via Netflix

And once again, we are left not knowing where any couples stand.

This really is a cruel game!

Do you think Hyun-seung will be some real competition? Will one of the new girls win over Se-hoon? Who will Ji-yeon and So-yeon go for? Tell us your predictions in the comments!
