There are a lot of K-pop stars out there who dwarf everyone whilst on stage, but it's a completely different story once offstage (i.e. they're quite short!).

Of course, you have the exceptions, and there are those K-pop idols who are as large as their stage presence - height-wise that is!

So without further ado, here are 10(ish) K-pop idols who are taller than one may expect.


Depending on his hairstyle, T.O.P's height can range from 182cm to 188cm!

9. EXO's Chanyeol

At 185cm, Chanyeol is comfortably the tallest member in EXO!

8. Girls' Generation's Sooyoung

At 170cm, Sooyoung may be considered short compared to the other idols on this list, but she still towers over all her fellow Girls' Generation members!

7. TVXQ's Changmin & 2AM's Seulong

Since both are 186cm, we had to include the two of them on this list!

6. After School's Nana

Beyond her looks, her acting, and her musical talent, Nana's 171cm height is another one of her many notable features!

5. CNBLUE's Jungshin

All of CNBLUE are quite tall, but Jungshin especially stands out with his 187cm height!

4. Various Nine Muses members

It's tough to keep track on who is still in Nine Muses, but one thing is for sure, the group has had its share of tall members, such as Euaerin (174cm), Hyuna (172cm) and Lee Sem (174cm).

3. Former EXO member Kris

Kris may no longer be part of EXO, but he has carved out a successful career since, no doubt in part to his statuesque 187cm height!

2. Dal Shabet's Subin

Standing at 175cm, Subin is one of - if not the - tallest female K-pop star at the moment!

1. All of KNK

Given that the shortest member is a towering 180cm and the average height of the group is 185cm, we just had to include every KNK member on this list!

(From 1:50 onwards)
