There are two IFBB Pro League Bikini division shows on Saturday, April 15, 2023. One is at the Wasatch Warrior Pro in Salt Lake City, UT, and the other will be on the other side of the world — the Korea AGP Pro show in Gyeonggi State, South Korea.
At the time of this article’s publication, there are four athletes scheduled to compete in this contest. The winner will earn qualification to compete against the best in the world at the 2023 Olympia in Orlando, FL, on Nov. 2-5, 2023.
None of the athletes on the 2023 Korea Asi Grand Prix Pro Roster have won a pro show or competed on the Olympia stage. The four contestants for this show are below:

Bae has been a professional Bikini competitor since 2019. She is also a cheerleader in her home country of South Korea.
Bae has competed four times in the IFBB Pro League. Her highest placing was eighth at the 2022 Asia Grand Prix Bikini Pro. This is her first contest appearance of the 2023 season. She is the lone Korean athlete facing the fans and judges in this lineup.
Chanyu will represent China at this show — no Bikini athlete from China competed in the 2022 Olympia. The last time a Chinese competitor appeared at the Olympia was Chen Qi Liu in 2021. She ranked out of the top 15; the winner that year was Jennifer Dorie.
Eun Jung Kim
Eun Jung Kim competed twice in 2022. She was the runner-up in the Korea Pro to winner Bola Seo and tied for 16th in the Japan Pro. She was the 2018 IFBB Pro Regional Monsterzym Korea Open Bikini division winner, which earned her a pro card. She has yet to win a show in the pro ranks.
Hyojung Kim finished in the top five in two Bikini division contests in her rookie year in 2022 — fifth in the Asia Grand Prix Bikini Pro and third in the Korea Pro. This is her first contest appearance of the 2023 season.
