It seems like every week, viewers are simping over someone new, but, in some ways, they kind of have to… While the show begins with 100 people, only one person will win in the end.

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.

The latest man that has our full and undivided attention is Yun Sung Bin.

Since the moment he appeared, viewers have been enamored.

Like we’re all down bad… He’s getting fan edits and thirst tweets.

But some have been simping for Yun Sung Bin long before Physical: 100…

If you watched the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, you might recall seeing him compete and win gold in men’s skeleton. Forbes called Yun “the first athlete from outside Europe or America to win a sliding medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics.”

I won gold at Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games. Olympic athletes rarely get a chance to appeal to the public or to share about themselves. The Olympics happen every four years, and we’re usually forgotten quickly. I came on the show because I wanted to show myself.

In case you’re unfamiliar with his sport, Skeleton racing is when a single rider slides head-first down an ice race track in a small sled called the Skeleton.

You might have noticed his helmet was inspired by Marvel superhero Iron Man.

Last year, he even got to meet his real-life hero Robert Downey Jr., who portrays Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He also graced the cover of Men’s Health in September 2022.

Yun has always been athletic. The athlete is 5’10” (178 cm) and was born on May 23, 1994. As a teenager, he would touch the rim of a basketball hoop despite his average height and even give competitors a 10-meter headstart in 100-meter races! He took his teacher’s advice and started skeleton racing although it didn’t come easy initially, he kept to it, and we’re glad he did. Now, he’s the “first South Korean gold medal outside skating; first Asian medalist in an Olympic sliding sport; fastest man ever down the slick ice at the Pyeongchang Games Olympic Sliding Centre.”

In 2018, his thighs caught worldwide attention…

Previously, he shared that he grew the muscles on his legs to have a faster starting speed. He also had to eat eight meals daily to gain up to 25 lbs (16 kg).

The start is the most important part of Skeleton, so it’s important to have a powerful speed. In order to have a faster start, I work on my lower body the most.

After his historic Olympic win, Yun Sung Bin became a household name. So, he has also appeared on variety shows such as Running Man. 

Besides skeleton racing, Yun Sung Bin likes to golf. You’ll see lots of pictures of him on the golf course if you follow his Instagram (@top.physical).

Yun Sun Bin is also a proud dog dad! His feed includes photos of his dog Genie, fitness, golf, and boyfriend pics.

He might be incredibly hot and muscular, but he is also adorable! Who wouldn’t simp for this man?
