Kim Byung Man Expresses Strong Will To Return To “Law Of The Jungle” As Soon As Possible

After taking a break from SBS’s “Law of the Jungle” for sustaining a spinal injury, Kim Byung Man expressed that he hopes to return to the show as early as late October.

On August 26, an entertainment source revealed that Kim Byung Man showed strong desire to join the show’s upcoming trip scheduled for late October.

Kim Byung Man temporarily left “Law of the Jungle” on July 20 due to a skydiving accident. As the show is predominantly led by “chief” Kim Byung Man, the production team took much deliberation before starting a new season in Fiji without the comedian for “Law of the Jungle” on August 15.

The cast for the new season is comprised of experienced stars who have appeared on the show alongside Kim Byung Man in the past.

A source close to Kim Byung Man informed, “Kim Byung Man currently has no trouble with walking around. He is receiving outpatient treatment, and is determined to recover.”

The source also shared, “Since ‘Law of the Jungle’ is more tough to shoot compared to other variety shows, others are suggesting he rest for at least six months,” and added, “But Kim Byung Man is so determined that if his physical condition is good in October, he might be able to join the show.”

Meanwhile, the upcoming season’s cast members include Choo Sung Hoon, Ryu Dam, Noh Woo Jin, Lee Tae Gon, Oh Jong Hyuk, and Jeong Jinwoon. Their trip to Fiji will begin airing in September.
