On October 4, it was revealed that Block B’s Park Kyung has officially joined Mensa International after taking a Mensa exam on September 24.
Mensa is the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world. It is a non-profit organization open to people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized, supervised IQ, or other approved intelligence test. This means only individuals who are at the top 2 percent are eligible to join.

Park Kyung has been showing off his smarts on tvN’s “Problematic Men,” a variety show that features riddles and quizzes for cast members and guests to solve and more.
Block B’s agency confirmed that Park Kyung did indeed pass the Mensa test and explained that he decided to take it after the “Problematic Men” production staff members suggested he do so. They further commented that Park Kyung is also very happy about the good news.
This news is especially meaningful considering it is Block B’s 2,000-day debut anniversary date as well. Congratulations to Park Kyung!
