In one of the episodes, competitor BBULKUP entertained viewers by asking Netflix to invite him to a second or third season of Physical: 100 since he was already eliminated.
Although Netflix hasn’t officially announced any plans for a second (or third) season, many K-Pop fans have also talked about how entertaining it would be to see some of their favorite athletic idols go head-to-head in a similar fitness competition.

I’ve been watching physical 100 on Netflix and I would just like to say I would love an all idol version of this. This show is so good and I would personally love to watch idols basically fight to the death

Here are 12 K-Pop idols that would dominate the competition in Physical: 100.
1. Bomi (Apink)
Although Apink‘s Bomi might be best known for her musical talent and hilarious variety show skills, the idol has often impressed netizens with her athleticism. The idol is trained in Taekwondo, having received her third-degree black belt. She has also shown her prowess in wrestling at the Idol Star Athletic Championships (also known as ISAC).
She also went viral for her powerful baseball pitch.
2. Changbin (Stray Kids)
Although multiple members of Stray Kids would be impressive Physical: 100 competitors, Changbin fits right in with the show’s competitors, as he’s always showing his enthusiasm for working out and improving his physique.
Changbin was also trained in Taekwondo and is not only strong, but flexible and speedy, making him a competitor anyone would be wary of.
3. Jackson (GOT7)
GOT7‘s Jackson is a talented idol who never fails to leave fans in awe of his skills. But before pursuing his successful musical career, Jackson was a promising young fencer. As both of his parents were athletes, Jackson was exposed to sports at a young age, becoming a Youth Olympic-level sabre fencer for Hong Kong’s official junior team.
Jackson’s astounding skill as an athlete would put him in an excellent position to compete in Physical: 100, especially since a former fencer is currently competing in the show and making a name for himself.
4. Jeno (NCT)
NCT‘s Jeno has continually proven his insane athletic ability, whether he’s working out, arm wrestling, competing in archery, or learning how to play tennis.
During one live stream, Renjun and Chenle even suggested that Jeno could compete in the Olympics for weightlifting or thumb wrestling.
5. Jeonghan (SEVENTEEN)
SEVENTEEN‘s Jeonghan has always shown his love for sports and his versatile skill.

With his love for all sports and competition, any competitor would hesitate to go up against Jeonghan.
6. Jungkook (BTS)
BTS‘s Jungkook has frequently shown off his athletic ability. No matter the sport, Jungkook has always excelled, especially in making a name for himself as an athlete at ISAC.
There’s no doubt that BTS’s “golden maknae” could easily hold his own in any competition.

7. Minho (SHINee)
When he was a child, SHINee‘s Minho hoped to be a professional soccer player. While he made his successful debut as an idol instead, Minho has always shown off his physical prowess.
He is well renowned for succeeding at any athletic competition, most recently having almost won the Netflix show Run For The Money, where he showed off his insane speed and endurance.
Minho is really the best 🤩👏🏽👏🏽woow he went so far in the Japanese game 'Run For The Money Battle Royal' 2022 (Netflix) all by himself

8. Minhyuk (BTOB)
BTOB‘s Minhyuk astounded netizens with his impressive feats at ISAC. Not only was he able to win multiple gold medals with his speed and strength, but he set a record in the high jump event.
With his powerful athleticism, anyone would be afraid to go up against him.
Minhyuk was ISAC MVP in 2013 & 2014. 3 unbroken records till now: 60m race (6.40s – placed 3rd in world indoor record), 70m race (7.73 s), and high jump (1m85). He was invited to ISAC Hall of Fame and nicknamed Medal Vacuum Cleaner. He got 20 medals in total #비투비 #BTOB pic.twitter.com/6Zl2CmOYWa

9. Sejeong (former Gugudan)
Kim Sejeong (also stylized as Kim Se Jeong) is unequivocally one of the most athletic female K-Pop idols. She’s continually shown off her arm-wrestling prowess…
Her ability to lift and carry other idols easily…
And her overall impressive strength and speed.
10. Sua (Dreamcatcher)
Another female idol that could definitely show off her athleticism is Dreamcatcher‘s Sua, who regularly practices boxing.
With her speed and power, Sua is a force to be reckoned with.

11. Sunghoon (ENHYPEN)
Before becoming an idol, ENHYPEN‘s Sunghoon competed as an international figure skater.
With over a decade of experience under his belt, having won multiple top-tier competitions, Sunghoon’s impressive endurance and agility would give him an edge if he wanted to compete in Physical: 100.
As many of the Physical: 100 contestants are bodybuilders, talented idol Wonho would perfectly fit in.
Like many of the idols on this list, Wonho also trained in Taekwondo, and his insane athletic skills would make him perfectly suited for a new season of the show.
