Hyung Soo Kim Wiki Update Wiki

Kim was a highly recruited wrestler in South Korea, receiving many scholarship offers. At 13 he was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia which required him to undergo surgery for bone marrow transplant. He was told he would  never wrestle or have a career in sports again. For years he was bedridden and weak, the medication he was prescribed to help with this was deemed performance enhancing and he was banned from wrestling. 


He took up a job as a physical therapist, through this he met Dae Hwan Kim (ROAD FC and UFC Korean commentator, fighter for ROAD). Dae Hwan was receiving treatment from Hyung Soo and Hyung Soo began to teach him wrestling leading to Dae Hwan offering him a coaching job at his gym. 

 
After 2 years of MMA training, Hyung Soo made it onto the original season of ROAD's Crying Fist show. He gained a lot of popularity through the show for his story and personality and was invited back on the show as a wrestling coach. 

 
His tattoo reads "Saved Life" and under it "Wrestling Saved My Life". 

 
Kim received more notice when news broke of him stopping a pervert that was sexually harassing a girl at a bus stop.
