Recently, on an online forum in South Korea, there is a very interesting article regarding the hand size of male and female idols. Based on the official measurements done in many different situations as well as actual images, netizens have made a list male idols with smaller hands and female idols with larger hands compared to the average size.
The average hand size for women is around 15 ~ 16cm.
Nayeon (TWICE) – 18.5cm
Jang Wonyoung (IZ*ONE) – There are no specific figures yet
The average hand size for men is around 19cm.
Cho Seung Youn – 18cm
Ha Sungwoon (HOTSHOT) – 17.5cm
Jimin (BTS) – 17.5cm
Hyojin (ONF) – 15.5cm
Felix (Stray Kids) – 15cm
When placing the above mentioned idols in order of hand size (except for Jang Wonyoung who has no specific measurements), we get the following result: Nayeon > Cho Seung Youn > Ha Sungwoon = Jimin > Hyojin > Felix. In particular, the gap between the person with the largest and the smallest hand is Nayeon and Felix (3.5 cm), who are both from JYP Entertainment.
Many comments from Korean netizens expressed interest in this unexpected result. Especially, Korean netizens are most surprised with Cho Seung Youn‘s hand size, when he is 180cm tall but has smaller hands than the average size.
Here are some comments from Knet:
