China, unable to watch Netflix, produces its own ‘Continental Edition Physical 100’
It seems that China was jealous of the popularity of the physical 100.
Recently, news that China is producing a reality program similar to Physical 100 has become a hot topic.
Chinese portals such as Sina.com and Sohu.com reported on the 16th (local time) that Chinese media giant Tencent is producing a new fitness-themed show that is very similar to Korea’s popular Netflix TV show ‘Physical 100’.
The title of the program is ‘Walker Yi (我可以)’. It means ‘I can do it’.
Now, Tencent has started recruiting participants for the program.
Participants must be at least 18 years of age, regardless of gender or occupation.
You must send 5 photos, self-introduction, and a video of your personal skills, and the video must be high-definition with no beauty filter set.
As with Physical 100, the program requires participants to have excellent stamina to withstand high-intensity challenges and confrontations.
According to what is known so far, a number of celebrities have been invited, including Taiwanese actor Feng Yuyan, Chinese actor Li Hsien (Lee Hyun), Duan Yihong, Mao Xiaotong, and famous Chinese influencer Zhou Yangqing.
Reportedly, this includes GOT7’s Jackson and actor Song Joong-ki.
This news aroused great interest from local netizens.
Some people were concerned that it would be an athlete selection contest, not a broadcast, and criticized that it seems to have plagiarized ‘Physical 100’.
Meanwhile, Netflix is banned in China. Nevertheless, illegally watching the popularity of ‘Physical 100’ was hot.
