Premiered on 24 January 2023, the brand new Squid Game-style reality show follows 100 contestants as they compete against each other for the chance to win the title of “most perfect physique” and of course, the 300 million won the cash prize.
Now, let’s look at who Park Hyung-geun is, his age, job, Instagram, Physical 100 journey, and more.
Park Hyung-geun On Netflix’s 100 Physical

Speaking of the first two of nine episodes, one by one, the 100 participants were shown entering an intimidating room with their own body sculptures waiting for them. Then, their first task sees them hanging from bars for the last one standing and a mountain climber comes out on top. As they plan on competing against each other in a bout, one can see why casting directors purposefully brought athletes, influencers, performers, and more with bodies and not with typical beauty standards.
Park is joined on this journey by a glimmering set of people including fitness YouTubers, bodybuilders, medalists from Olympic and other Asian Games, weightlifters, stunt people, fitness coaches, wrestlers, trainers, athletes, fire squad workers, police officers, soldiers, fellow MMA fighters, and Cha Hyun Seung, a former participant from Single’s Inferno.
