Some of the stars facing the challenges in the arena are recognized celebrities from the Korean peninsula, or popular on social media.
Fans will watch from the comfort of their own homes as they push their body and minds to the ultimate limit. Each challenge is planned to show who can withstand the extreme pressure.
