Kim Byung Man, one of the cast members of the reality TV show "Law of the Jungle," topped the brand reputation index for Korean TV entertainers in August.
The 41-year-old comedian gained attention when he suffered severe injuries in a skydiving training in the US last month. He underwent surgery and is now back in South Korea.
He topped the latest rankings with a score of 4.13 million, increasing by a whopping 517.75 percent from his July ranking of 669,645.
With his injury, it was reported that he won't be able to film the next season of "Law of the Jungle."
According to the show, "It hasn't been fully decided if Kim Byung Man won't be joining the next season," Soompi reported.
"Currently, he is being examined back in Korea, and he is also continually talking with the staff. We are preparing for the possibility that he won't be able to join the show. Even if he isn't able to go on the trip, we are thinking of various ways for him to still contribute to the show."
