New Musclemania® America Physique Champion Dong Yeob Jo created a new definition for "lean". The 5'11", 195 lbs., 25 year old, Korean personal trainer's weight has not changed over the past 2 years of competing but his condition has improved in every appearance.
Korean superstar Chul Soon took a splash after Musclemania® Universe in Florida in June. The 5'9", 200 lbs., MM Pro followed-up show with 3 days of media shoots with magazine photographers. Chul returned to Korea a few days later and appeared on a nationally televised fitness entertainment show in which he acted the DJ throughout the 1-hour program. Next month, he will travel to Singapore as a special guest at MM Asia along with fellow MM Pro legend Ade Rai of Indonesia.
Musclemania Pros Chul Soon (L) and Ulisses (R) have always been mutual admirers with respect for the others' competitive and commercial achievements. In just 6 years, Chul has risen from being a Korean sports model to one of the sports most popular natural bodybuilders and commercial stars. For over a decade Ulisses has been legendary with his classic symmetry, incredible muscle bellies and lean condition. But his marketable appeal and public attraction has also made him a commercial celebrity. So, will Chul and Ulisses be in Florida in June for a Musclemania rematch? The season is just beginning to unfold.
