Not many people can stroll into a room full of people and exclaim that they are Korea’s strongest man. But Ha Je-Yong, AKA Korean Hulk, certainly can.
He is one of the 100 contestants taking part in a brand new Netflix competition series called Physical 100.
Let’s find out more about the powerlifter and man who holds the title of Korea’s strongest man.

Ha Je-Yong splits his time between Seoul, Moscow, and Dubai and does business in all three locations per GQ.
For over 10 years, he represented Korea in open-weight arm wrestling competitions.
Ha Je-Yong also holds the Korean bench press record and is currently a powerlifter. Speaking on Physical 100, he said that “soon,” he plans on “breaking the world record.”
In a 2017 interview with GQ, he said that his “biceps are 56 cm.”
He says he’s the ‘strongest man in Korea’
Walking into a room full of contestants and their torsos in episode 1, Ha Je-Yong introduced himself and said: “Hello everyone. I’m Ha Je-Yong. The strongest man in Korea.”
