Viewers were continually impressed by the cast, who always gave their all despite the brutal challenges.

Many Netflix viewers were surprised to learn that Single’s Inferno 2 contestant Kim Jin Young almost joined Physical: 100 alongside his friend Agent H.

But while Kim Jin Young had to decide between the two Netflix reality shows, some Physical: 100 contestants recently revealed in an interview with W Korea that they also didn’t know what to make of the offer at first.

Contestants like Jang Eun Sil and winner Woo Jin Young were surprised to have Netflix reach out to them.

Meanwhile, Jo Jin Hyeong didn’t notice the DM (direct message) with the offer until three days after it was sent.

Many of the contestants couldn’t believe the offer was genuine when they received it.

Contestant Park Min Ji actually had her social media accounts set to private, so one of her teammates got the offer for her, which led to Park Min Ji asking her teammate “multiple times to check” if it was legitimate.

In contrast, Park Jong Hyuk shared that he had had multiple offers already, including for Transfer Love, but he felt best suited for Physical: 100 since he didn’t “have an ex-girlfriend to go on ‘Transfer Love’ with [him].”

But regardless of how the contestants felt when they first received the offer to compete in Physical: 100, they all agreed that they couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
