Shinhwa’s Andy, Bora, Eric Nam, ASTRO’s Moonbin, And More Confirmed For New tvN Chuseok Special
A new kind of game show is headed your way!
tvN will be airing a human experiment variety show called “Accidental Behavioral Science Research Center” (literal title) as a Chuseok special.
The game show will incorporate humanities into a variety program. This is a spin-off show by producing director Jung Min Sik, who planned and directed O tvN’s lecture program “Accidentally An Adult” (literal title).
“Accidental Behavioral Science Research Center” will be hosted by MCs Kim Sung Joo and Kim Hwan, with eight players per episode, three experimental rooms, and five different games.
A total of 16 players will appear during the two episodes including Shinhwa’s Andy, Bora, Eric Nam, Hwang Jae Sung, Yoo Min Sang, Heo Kyung Hwan, Sam Okeyere, Kim Dong Han, ASTRO’s Moonbin, Hong Jin Ho, Lee Chun Soo, Shin Soo Ji, Kisum, Cao Ru, and Yang Chi Seung.
Games such as popping balloons filled with flour, avoiding mud, and others will be designed by experts in humanities and behavioral science. While the players are focused on playing these games, experts in humanities and behavioral sciences will analyze their behavior while observing them in a different room. The players will not know that their actions are being carefully analyzed until filming is over.
The experts will analyze the contradictions behind what may seem like small choices made by the players and reveal what may have been a better choice. Viewers will be able to witness different human behaviors and choices from textbooks in real situations.
Experts behind the games and analyses include Professor Kim Kyeong Il of reasoning and judgment from Aju University, Professor Lee Yoon Hyung of language psychology from Yeungnam University, and Professor Kim Tae Hoon of behavioral science from Kyungnam University.
“Accidental Behavioral Science Research Center” will air on September 24 and 25 at 6:30 p.m. KST.
