Singer, basketball star, cartoonist team up
As speakers, author Cho Seung-yeon, who specializes in world culture; professor, critic and aesthetician Chin Jung-kwon; professor of parasitology, Seo Min; and political analyst Kim Ji-yoon have been selected.
Gong Hyo-sun, the producer of “Shoulder of Giants,” told News1, “The program will be in a different format from that of previous speech programs. It will surely fulfill the audience’s curiosity of various fields.” He said the title, “Shoulder of Giants,” comes from what Isaac Newton wrote on a letter to his fellow scientist, “If I have seen further, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.”
Meanwhile, Seo created laughter by saying in the first shooting, “The production crew selected me as the name of the program.” Seo Jang-hoon is 207 centimeters (6 feet 8 inches), and is currently making his appearance on JTBC’s talk show, “Knowing Bros.”
