The average height of South Korean men is around 175.26 cm (5′ 9″). Most male idols are around this number, but there are still several exceptions who are either far above or quite a bit below it. Here are the current 6 tallest and 6 shortest male idols who are still active in K-Pop.
First, let's take a look at the ones with the supreme heights:
1. SF9 Rowoon: 190cm (6’2.8″)
SF9 Rowoon is currently the male K-Pop idol with the biggest height in K-Pop, in his profile provided by RoWoon's agency FNC management, he is 189cm tall, but he once admitted himself that his real height is 190cm. Nevertheless, fans think that maybe his real height now ranges from 192cm to 193cm.
2. PENTAGON Wooseok: 189cm (6’2″)
Wooseok is literally PENTAGON's "giant maknae" when he is the tallest member of the group and also among the tallest idols in K-Pop.
3. KNK Seoham: 190cm (6’3″)
Seoham is the tallest member of the tallest boy group of K-Pop - KNK.
4. CNBLUE Jungshin: 188cm (6’1.6″)
5. SEVENTEEN Mingyu: 187cm (6’1″)
Mingyu owns a "huge" height of 187cm. Once upon a time, when he was livestreaming on V Live, Mingyu joked that the company's CEO said he wouldn't let Mingyu stay in SEVENTEEN if he continued to grow taller.
6. Former B.A.P. – Zelo: 187cm (6’1″)
Now are the shortest (but so cute and talented) ones!
1. SEVENTEEN Woozi: 164cm (5’3.8″)
Fans often joke that in SEVENTEEN, Woozi is in charge of 3 things: singing, composing and... decreasing the average height of the group. In fact, his height of 1m64 is not an attractive figure in the idol world. Fortunately, Woozi's talent has blown away all other prejudices!
2. iKON Jinhwan: 165cm (5’4″)
Many people were surprised to know that Jinhwan is the oldest member of iKON. With a height of 1m65, the male idol looks more like the maknae than the real maknae of the group - Chanwoo.
3. Ha Sungwoon: 167cm (5’4.7″)
Standing among the "giant" juniors in the group such as Lai Kuan Lin and Kang Daniel, Sungwoon's shortness is clearly visible. The second oldest member of Wanna One is only 1m67 tall.
