Park Hyungsik has shown the charm of a younger man to Nam Jihyun in 'The Romantic'.

Nam Jihyun chose Park Hyungsik's dolphin necklace on the latest episode of 'The Romantic & Idol' and became a couple with him. The two amazingly thought, "This seems like the fate that Mir had talked about," because all the other couples had been rematched except for Jihyun and Hyungsik.

Afterwards, Nam Jihyun and Park Hyungsik had a date as they had drinks by the beach cafe and walked along the seashore. Park Hyungsik held Nam Jihyun's hand to help her walk on the rough sands on the beach.

This made Nam Jihyun smile as she asked, "Yah! Have you done skinship like this?", to which Park Hyungsik nervously responded, "Yeah."  Jihyun responded, "I see. Noona will hold your hand then," as they linked hands once again.

Afterwards, the couple shared one set of headphones as they sat on the rocks listening to music. Park Hyungsik also shaded Nam Jihyun from the hot sun with his hands and body, showing his chivalry and kindness.
