Did you know he's already married and has kids?

If you've ever caught yourself mindlessly scrolling through Netflix, looking for your next K-drama or movie to click play on, well, allow us to introduce to you a reality show like no other: Physical: 100.

Possibly the closest we'll ever get to a real-life version of Squid Game (minus, you know, the bloodbath and betrayals), the survival series maxes out the physical prowesses of 100 contestants through grueling challenges and tests. The prize at stake? 300,000,00 Won—which is, FYI, over P13,000,000! Whether you fancy breaking a sweat or not, we're certain you'll have your eyes glued to the screen with every episode. 

And if the premise enough isn't enough to engage you, then the cast surely will. The show's pool of contestants is composed of various individuals who all share a love for athleticism, with some possibly being familiar faces from other programs.

Someone who's been the talk of the town after his appearance in the Physical: 100 arena is Kim Kyung Jin, a.k.a. the "fit farmer." While his run on the show may have concluded on episode 2, social media has been abuzz over his Adonis-esque figure and swoon-worthy looks. We've been curious to know more about this plantito ever since, so we've collated some fast facts of his worth picking up. Scroll away to find out!
