Sure their stage presence may be enormous, but up close, these K-pop idols aren't exactly the tallest people in the world!

On the stage, K-pop idols seem like giants that dwarf over everyone. Off the stage however, some are just as short as everyone else (or even shorter)!

So keeping in mind that this is an unranked list, here are 10 popular K-pop idols who are surprisingly short.

10. BIGBANG's Taeyang

He may not be the tallest guy in the business, but Taeyang's decidedly-average height of 174cm is dwarfed by his enormous stage presence!

9. Miss A's Min

Everyone in Miss A is pretty short, but Min is the shortest at just a mere 161cm (5'3)!

8. SHINee's Jonghyun

Jonghyun is a little on the short side at 173cm (5'6), but he has the voice of a giant! 

7. T-ara's Boram

Standing at just 155cm (5'1), Boram is known as the smallest member if T-ara. But what she lacks in height she makes up for in charm! 

6. Beast's Yoseob & Gikwang

We're bending the rules a bit, but seeing as how both Yoseob and Gikwang are both 170cm (5'6), we had to have both on this list!

5. Akdong Musician

Seeing how Sooyhun's 158cm (5'2) is only 1cm shorter than her brother's height of 159cm (5'2), it seems fitting to include both! 

4. EXO's D.O.

EXO's D.O. isn't exactly a dwarf, but when you're only 173cm (5'6) tall in a group where every other member is between 180-188cm, you're going to look way shorter by comparison!

3. Lee Hi

She's amongst the youngest idols out there, so it's not too big of a surprise that Lee Hi is only 156cm (5'1) tall!

2. Block B's Taeil

Standing at 167cm (5'5), Block B's Taeil is probably amongst the shortest male idols around. But no matter, what he lacks in height, he makes up for with his voice! 

1. Girls' Generation's Taeyeon & Sunny

We had to include Taeyeon and Sunny since they're both in the same group and they're both the same height - a statuesque 155cm (5'1)!
