Joo Min Kyung On Netflix’s Physical 100 Season 2

Season 2 of Netflix’s Physical: 100 is back and one of the contestants this season is Joo Min Kyung. Physical: 100 is back for another exciting challenge that pushes the boundaries of 100 fitness enthusiasts both mentally and physically.

Min Kyung is a part of group two titled “national athletes.”

The popular reality Netflix Korean series debuted last year and attracted a devoted following (guilty), thanks to its intense challenges (one-on-one wrestling matches, team competitions to pull a 4,000-pound ship, etc.) and the endearing camaraderie and sportsmanship among the season 1 contestants.

With more challenging rounds and an even more remarkable ensemble, Netflix promised that season 2 would raise the standard, and thus far, the new episodes are starting an incredible season of Korean entertainment.

Olympic gold medalists, pro bodybuilders, top influencers, and famous athletes are among the national and international celebrities who make up the cast of Physical: 100 season 2. Similar to season 1, several competitors are bringing obscure sports and careers to a worldwide audience.

Since there were only 50 participants left after eliminations, not all of the winners are featured in Physical 100 Season 2. The first team challenge, the third mission, pitted two teams against one another to determine who would stay in the series and who would go. The first winners thus far are Lee Won-hee’s and Kim Dong-Hyun’s teams.

Min Kyung is a member of Lee Jae-Yoon’s team which also includes Jo Sung-bin, Lee Hyun-jeong, and Justin Harvey who won against Jung Ji-hyun’s team in quest two.

When the surviving competitors had to cooperate in the Five-on-Five Team battle to escape elimination, Physical 100 Season 2 turned ruthless. Lee’s team’s plan of securing two of the weighted scales leading to victory helped them win by the end of Quest 2. Hwang and his squad were eliminated as a result of it. The teams that played next were Kim’s and Amotti’s.

Even though there was a lot of tension up until the very end, Kim’s squad won, and Amotti and his team were eliminated. The following game pitted Hong’s side against Lee’s team. Hong’s squad led Quest 2 before to the cliffhanger, but the winner is currently unclear.

Joo Min Kyung Job

Joo Min Kyung is a professional arm wrestler. He transferred from the Department of Information and Communication Engineering of Inha University to the Department of Arm Wrestling. In 2022, he got a job at an arm wrestling gym.

Discussing how he got into the show, he said, “It was the first time I started arm wrestling with my friends for fun when I was in elementary and middle school. Gradually, arm wrestling became more fun, so I exercised and practiced, and before I knew it, I had become the best arm wrestling student in the neighborhood. Afterwards, I heard that there was an arm wrestling competition at a local festival, so I applied. Although there were only about 5 participants, I took first place in the high school division. Although it was a small competition, I felt a great sense of accomplishment by winning first place. I think I became more confident and focused on arm wrestling.”

In October 2022, Min Kyung competed in the Indonesia International Competition named VIER World Armwrestling 2022. He was crowned Unlimited Weight Class Winner and Unified Winner of All Weight Classes.

Later, in May 2023, Min Kyung announced that he returned from a successful competition in Japan. He competed in the unlimited left arm event and finished in second place.

He added in the IG post, “When I just started arm wrestling, Japan was much stronger than Korea. Now, I am proud to have proven that our country is not at all behind Japan. However, in Japan, there are over 1,000 arm wrestling gyms and there are female athletes, so there is still a lot to learn. I hope that the day will come when East Asian athletes are recognized globally as we grow together in the future.”

Most recently in February 2024, Min Kyung shared on his Instagram, “2024 Japan 1st YD CUP +75kg Right arm🥇Left arm🥇 I came to comfort the disappointment of the Asian Cup… Not only me, -65kg Jeon Pil-woo and -75kg Park Se-yoon won, so the right arm was won by a Korean athlete in all weight classes🥇🥇 2024 is off to a good start. Happy New Year everyone🇰🇷.”

He is also a JTBC Over the Cup Invitational Champion. He also serves as the “resident Head of Arm Wrestling Studio” and “South Branch Head of South Korea Arm Wrestling Federation | Team North Hill Team Head.”

Korean Arm Wrestling Federation also celebrated Min Kyung’s appearance on the Netflix show writing, “Yesterday (3.26). Tuesday) In <Physical: 100 Season 2 – Underground> where a new episode was released, the power and performance of “Arm Wrestling National Resident Kyung” player who jumps without sacrificing his clothes for the team’s survival… Did y’all check this out?! I express my gratitude and respect to Jumin Kyung player who clearly showed his presence among the 100 strongest physicians in Korea with the title of National Arm Wrestling Representative! Let’s go Jumin Kyung for winning the championship~!! 🤜🤜🤜.”
