On February 1, JR uploaded a video to Instagram of himself walking on a treadmill gifted to him by Kim Byung Man.
JR said, “Byung Man, our chief, gave me a gift. Tada! This is it for today’s workout. It’s hard. Byung Man, thank you!”
Along with the video, JR wrote in the caption, “Byung Man, our chief, gave me a gift!! That is an iRunner. Oh yeah. Thank you very, very much. I will exercise hard! Tada.”
At a press conference for the show, JR revealed, “My lower body is a bit weak, so I put in effort to gain energy to go on the trip. I didn’t do particular exercises for it, but I walked up hills.” It looks like Kim Byung Man got him the perfect gift to help with that!
“Law of the Jungle in Patagonia” aired its first episode on February 2.
