K-Pop is getting huge – and we’re not just talking about the music!
It seems that with every generation of K-Pop, our idols are not only pushing the movement forward, but shooting up pretty high as well. For this week’s Kpopmap Chart, we’re going to be counting down the top ten tallest idols in the game right now – five females and five males.
First up are the ladies!
5. NaNa of After School – 171 cm (5’6.1)
Seoul Fashion Week
NaNa‘s height paired with her glamorous figure has made her one of the ultimate goddesses of K-Pop. All hail the queen!
4. NaRa of Hello Venus – 172 cm (5’6.4)
NaRa might be the tallest member of Hello Venus at the moment, but if you take her word for it, it won’t be that way forever. In a previously released interview, the idol-actress that fellow member YooYoung might catch up with her very soon!
3. SoWon of GFRIEND – 172 cm (5’6.7)
As one of the tallest female idols out there, it should be no surprise that SoWon used to study as a member of Hanlim Multi Art School’s Fashion Model department. The girl’s got legs for days!
2. SungAh of Nine Muses – 173 cm (5’6.8)
SungAh has the honor of being the tallest member of the tallest female idol group out there! The current line-up of Nine Muses averages to be about 169 cm (approximately 5’5).
1. SuBin of Dal Shabet – 175 cm (5’7.4)
Despite being the tallest female idol in K-Pop right now, height isn’t that big of a deal to Dal Shabet’s SuBin. “Height, face, and body don’t really matter,” she commented when asked about her ideal type. “I like someone with charisma.”
And now for the gentlemen!
5. TVXQ’s ChangMin – 186 cm (6’1)
We Are T With TVXQ!
“To be honest, Changmin is too tall and he’s also too good looking, so I feel very burdened,” TVXQ’s YunHo once joked on a variety show. “So I wear cushion insoles whenever I stand next to him.”
4. CNBLUE’s JungShin – 187 cm (6’1.4)
JungShin has long received attention from K-Pop fans for his model-like height and masculine charm. A photo of a stylist struggling to reach up and fix his hair during a photo shoot went viral in Korea.
3. CROSS GENE’s Takuya – 188 cm (6’1.7)
Takuya has a reputation of being one of the fastest CROSS GENE members to get ready in the morning, something fellow member Casper accredits to his height. “It’s faster for the water from the shower head to reach [Takuya’s] body,” he joked in a recent interview.
2. KNK’s SeungJun – 189 cm (6’2)
At an average height of 165 cm (6’1), KNK is easily the tallest idol group in K-Pop, making SeungJun the giantest of the KNK giants. So how’d he get so tall? On an episode of “Weekly Idol,” the idol swore by the benefits of drinking worm juice.
1. SF9’s RoWoon – 189 cm (6’2)
Since debuting late last year, SF9’s RoWoon has become a popular variety show fixture thanks to his height and handsome charm. The idol was also given the opportunity to try his hand at runway modeling for Sewing Boundaries at this year’s Seoul Fashion Week.
