Who is Kim Min-Cheol?

Kim Min-Cheol is a member of South Korea’s Bukhansan mountain rescue team with an avid interest in athletics. The man is a part of Korea’s National Ice climbing team and always works hard to complete the most challenging routes. In fact, frozen walls are not the only heights that the reality TV star likes to climb, as he is also a talented wall climber and has experience in rock climbing.

When Kim first stepped foot into the Netflix show, he was quite in awe of his fellow competitors. The appreciation also increased his determination to show the world what he could do. For the pre-quest/Quest 0, all participants had to hold on to a metal structure for as long as possible. The task was far from easy, and many renowned athletes dropped into the water. However, Kim held on for 18 minutes and 15 seconds, making him the best performer in the task.

Thanks to his talents and skills, Kim cleared the first quest and was a part of Choo Sung-Hoon‘s team for the second and third rounds. For the penultimate quest, he ended up participating in the game known as The Wings of Icarus. As part of the challenge, Kim and his competitors had to climb up an ever-descending rope without their feet touching the ground; whoever stayed up the longest would win the challenge. Given his background as a climber, Kim’s performance was quite exemplary, leading him to become one of the five finalists.
