Vernon recently appeared on the variety show My Little Old Boy with Seungkwan, and Seo Jang Hoon was the host. On this show, celebrities reflect on their childhood along with their mothers.


After Seungkwan recounted the time he asked for one of his childhood performances to be taken down, Vernon told Seo Jang Hoon that he had once interviewed him. At the time, Vernon was 13 years old.

Vernon interviewed him for the TV show Life from a Kid’s Point of View, which is still on air to this day. At the time, Seo Jang Hoon was still a basketball player.

During the interview, young Vernon was clearly impressed by Seo Jang Hoon’s height. Seo Jang Hoon is about 2 meters and 7 cm (6’9), so it’s understandable that Vernon was shocked by how tall he is!

Although Seo Jang Hoon didn’t seem to remember the interview at first, we’re sure he was glad to reconnect with Vernon, his adorable interviewer from 11 years ago!
