An earlier version of this article incorrectly reported that Kim Jin Young would be appearing in Netflix’s “Physical: 100.”
Now that Single’s Inferno 2 has finished airing, the contestants can share exciting updates about their lives, including some adorable updates about the couples that left Inferno together. Similarly, popular contestant and YouTuber Kim Jin Young has now seemingly joined the cast of a new, upcoming variety show.
Although viewers had mixed feelings about Jin Young, with some of his behavior deemed “red flags” to viewers, there’s no denying that not only was he the most popular male contestant in Inferno, but viewers enjoyed watching him on the show as well.
Throughout the episodes, he showed off his humor, endearing habits, and, of course, physical strength.
Given his history as a former ROKN UDT/SEAL and current occupation as a YouTube content creator, it didn’t come as a surprise to fans of Single’s Inferno that Jin Young’s coworkers had joined the cast of the upcoming Netflix reality show Physical: 100.
One hundred contestants in top physical shape compete in a series of grueling challenges to claim the honor — and cash reward — as the last one standing.

But now viewers suspect that Jin Young himself will appear in another Netflix reality show this year, Zombieverse.
In Seoul, where a zombie virus outbreak has run amok, who will outwit the undead in the face of challenging quests and come out alive?

Although Jin Young has not been confirmed as part of the cast, one Reddit user noticed that “Dex” was a listed cast member. And, given Jin Young’s Instagram username @dex_xeb, netizens suspect it could be him.
Once again, the idea of physical challenges seems to fall perfectly into Jin Young’s strength as an entertainer, and there’s no denying that he’ll also add some levity to the reality show if he is part of the cast.
Aside from simply being a perfect fit for Zombieverse, netizens suspect that Jin Young will join the contestants since confirmed cast members DinDin, Park Na Rae, and Lee Si Young now all follow Jin Young on Instagram.
Although there is no official update for whether or not Jin Young will be a part of Zombieverse, his frequent references to his former and current job while on Single’s Inferno were definitely perfect promotion for himself and his upcoming appearances.
