Surgery, hospital, and emergency room are not words people usually associate with Kim Byung Man. Afterall, the 160-centimeter (approximately 5 feet 2 inches) tall comedian and stuntman has eight black belts for various martial arts and has even tried his hand at figure skating!
Earlier this month, Kim Byung Man received surgery in the United States for a spinal fracture injury which he sustained in a skying diving accident. The comedian was participating in a training exercise to receive a skydiving license for the upcoming Korean International Skydiving Competition. The accident was caused by a sudden change in wind direction as Kim Byung Man was landing. Thankfully, Kim Byung Man prevented further injury as he bent his legs the moment of impact, a skill acquired in his years of martial arts training.
