Shim Euddeum, a fitness YouTuber with 1.4 million subscribers, said that when she was young, she was born underweight (2.2 kg) and spent her school days with a weak constitution. Born with poor stamina, she suffered from a car accident, and while rehabilitating, she focused on improving her physical strength through Pilates, running, and powerlifting. Now, she boasts extraordinary physicality. She said, “Even on physically difficult days, if the last schedule is powerlifting, my adrenaline rises because I’m excited. Every time I lift weight, I feel confident in myself and my mentality is strong.”

Jang Eun Sil is a former member of the national wrestling team  She says that even in the Taereung Athletes’ Village, where all athletes, including the national team, are gathered, the exercise of wrestlers is said to be beyond imagination. From 6 in the morning to 10 at night, she repeated the exercise four times a day of extreme exercise. Jang Eun Sil was also skinny when she was in high school when she started wrestling. That’s why she had to shed a lot more sweat and tears than others. She said in the interview, “Now I have a mind to enjoy exercise. It seems that my horizons have broadened. I think I’ve reached my second heyday as a wrestler.”

Hwang Bityeoul, a crossfit athlete, said that during her school days, when she started her physical education college entrance exam, she already had an outstanding athletic ability. After choosing CrossFit at the recommendation of a senior in physical education, she honed CrossFit for several years and lifted trophies in various competitions. Picking shoulders as the part of her body she is most proud of, Hwang Bityeoul said, “It is difficult to build shoulder muscles like this. It takes much longer and is more difficult than men’s. That’s how hard I worked out to build my body.”

The main character in the pictorial is Minji, a wrestling player. She wanted to face someone with a bigger physique regardless of gender, and drew attention by pointing out a male rugby national team player with a much larger physique than her to go up against in the 1:1 ball stealing match of “Physical: 100.” She said, “I have no regrets about my choice. Thanks to that, I had a valuable experience that I couldn’t get in a wrestling ring. I became close with Jang Seong Min, who I nominated as my opponent.”

Meanwhile, “Physical: 100” made Netflix’s Top 10 shows around the world and was on the rise, but the press conference to celebrate the end of the show was canceled due to the cast’s controversies.  Netflix, which made an official position ahead of the press conference scheduled for February 28th, said, “The production team of ‘Physical: 100’ reported that the cast was involved in an unpleasant incident and is investigating the situation. We have canceled the event because we decided that finding out what happened was the priority.”
