Choo Sung-Hoon is the most respected of the 100 contestants, but Physical: 100’s Yun Sung-bin is the most feared. In the deathmatch challenge, he dominated and practically mauled his opponent, MMA fighter and singer Lee Dae-Won. And going into the upcoming team challenge, Olympic skeleton gold medalist Yun Sung-bin received far and away the most votes from his peers to be a team leader. Then, given the right to choose his opposing team, he picked the group led by rugby standout Jang Seong-Min. When he did, it was Jang, who is three inches taller and 40 pounds heavier than Yun, who looked surprised and intimidated.
The reason is simple: Physical: 100’s Yun Sung-bin is a physical phenomenon. He seems to be able to master any sport quickly, from soccer to badminton. While he’s not a fighter by trade, he’s incredibly fast and has a ridiculous jumping ability. He’s also known for his competitive streak and iron will, which has earned him the nickname “Iron Man.” When he speaks on Physical: 100, he appears calm and chilled out, a far cry from more flashy contestants like back-flipping wrestler Nam Kyung-Jim or intense army reservist Agent H. All of this makes him a heavy favorite to win the 300 million won grand prize. Can we find anything else out about him from his social media?
