Professor Bae Sang-min said that he was researching Nanum Design.

Professor Bae Sang-min selected Dasan Jeong Yak-yong as his role model and rival in life.

In the SBS ‘All The Butlers’ broadcast on the 9th, Professor Bae Sang-min, a professor of industrial design at KAIST and president of the design center of large company L, appeared as a teacher.

Bae Sang-min, who said that he was researching design for sharing that day, mentioned ‘Hongik Ingan’ and said, “We are a country made for sharing. Where in the world are there such countries? This is the ideological basis that led me to do ‘Sharing Design’.”

He continued, “The Korean design philosophy, in a word, is ‘forgiveness’. The person who first spoke of this philosophy of ’empathy’ was my life’s rival and teacher Jeong Yak-yong, who was influenced by Confucius.”

He chose Dasan Jeong Yak-yong as his role model and rival in life.

Bae Sang-min said, “The exact thoughts and actions he did are the same as the industrial designers I do now. . It all started with empathy.”

To this, the members said, “Isn’t it a bit excessive? When he said, “Aren’t living people usually rivals?” Bae Sang-min said, “Why do you have to compete with your neighbor?” “When thinking about a role model, it’s possible to meet people with similar ideals beyond time and space. Jeong Yak-yong’s philosophy is precisely my ideal design type.”

He continued, “I competed across time and space while contemplating what teacher Jeong Yak-yong did at my age. There are seniors who went down that road first, so it gives me strength when I am lonely.”
