Hey rob, I measure around 181.7cm in the mornings and usually end at 180-179.7cm before bed depending on how active the day was. I'm currently 17 with short parents (both 160-ish), you think I can hit 6ft?


It's definitely possible, I was 5'10 flat at 17, and I am now bang on the same height as you (5'11 flat) at nearly 19 and a half, so you growing to 6'0-6'0.5 or taller is very possible tbh.

181.5-182 out of bed
180-180.2 in the afternoon
179.5-179.8 before bed

I've seen him in person and he is 180cm at most. I'd peg him at 179-180 range.
FloJ said on 5/Sep/23
Watched many matches of his.
The Tottenham Captain is 181 cm before bed. At worst 180.5 before bed.

I think he’d measure taller than 5”11 flat. Maybe not the full 6 foot as listed, but 181-182cm range

5'11 and a half or 3/4 1.82m much like I measure

I feel he is a bit taller than 5”11 flat. Might not be the full 6”0, but thought he was a 181-182cm guy. People claiming he is 5”10 is are delusional.

Rob there Twitter pic of both of them ,he looks similer height to 6ft richarlison ,both standing side by side both in football boots, could it be son's hair that gives the illusion hes taller rob??
SannaMarinlove said on 7/Oct/22
I would say 1,78 m or 5'10
He ismuch shorter than Kane
FloJ said on 3/Oct/22
It will be interesting to know his exact weight.
Always thought he looked 73kg maximum, but now may be the 75-76 kg range is also a possibility because he has very muscular legs
Charles Griffith said on 19/Aug/22
Rob he looks significantly taller than david beckham , you sure he’s 5’11 flat he looks more 182.5 cm ?
Kanefan said on 21/Jul/22
@ Man United Fan that guy is not 185 - look at the pic of him with Kane

6ft just over said on 10/Jun/22
rob, which is most reasonable for son?

A. 183.0 / 181.0 (before bed)
B. 182.5 / 180.5
C. 182.0 / 180.0
Editor Rob
At the moment I think B is ok
FloJ said on 10/Jun/22
Rob how likely is 181 cm before bed for Son Heung Min?
Editor Rob
There is a chance of it, maybe more so than shy of 5ft 11.

Sonny and Kane broke Premier League's all time scoring/assist duo today. The height difference between them does seem around 7 cm when they were doing the interview and celebrating together.
5'11 1/4 guy said on 6/Feb/22

We have the same measurements xD
FloJ said on 7/Jan/22
He is definitely not under 5’11 at any point of the day. I think he wakes up 183 and goes to bed at 181. Or at worst 180.5 cm before bed. I just can’t see him as a flat 5’11.

With shoes he should measure over 6’0.
HRA10222 said on 7/Jan/22
Rob, what about Lucas Moura who is listed 172?
Editor Rob
Yeah he looks somewhere in 5ft 7 range
ViridianForest said on 1/Jan/22
Rob is spot on with Son's height. Son is definitely in the 5'11" range - my guess is 181/180cm if you take away Son's hair volume.

Harry Winks is listed at 178cm on multiple sources, that means Son is only a few centimetres taller than Winks. Take a look at this:

Pause at 0:08, 0:24

I think this is rock solid evidence, do you agree, Rob?
Editor Rob
Son sometimes seems more a strong 5ft 11 than a weak one.
about 6ft 1.5in said on 9/Sep/21
hi rob, how about 0.25in upgrade? i think 181cm is possible
Lava said on 31/May/21
Son: 180 cm. before bed. 182 cm. out of bed.
Sung Yong-Gi: 189 cm. before bed. 191 cm. out of bed.
Dom5'11.5 said on 19/May/21
He is the exact same height range as me.
First thing in the Morning 182.5cm-183cm
Night/after a long game-181cm-181.5cm
Danny batba said on 2/May/21
Hey Rob , what is the highest and what is the lowest you would estimate on Son?
Editor Rob
5ft 11.5 to 5ft 11
Lanky bu not tall said on 26/Apr/21
Need downgrade to 5'9. Below picture of him with Tottenham's new coach Ryan Mason' who's listed 5'9. Notice that Ryan is slightly slouching.

Click Here

Below picture of him with Tottenham's former coach Mourinho, who's also listed 5'9

Click Here

Again Mourinho is slightly slouching and still same height as Son
Danny batba said on 24/Apr/21
Hey Rob how tall do you think Son would wake up straight out of bed if he stood really tall?
Editor Rob
Not far off 6ft
Danny.Batba said on 28/Feb/21
He’s listed as 76kg , do you think this is accurate Rob? What do you think son’s weight range is?
Editor Rob
I don't think that range seems outrageous, plus or minus a kg or so is believable.

Need downgrade to 5'10 1/2

Hey @Rob, how tall do you think Son really is with 176 cm (5'9") tall Van de Vaart here ?

Click Here

Click Here

Son doesn't really look more than 2cm taller than Van de Vaart in most pics imo. I think he should be downgraded to 177-178 cm at most
Editor Rob
I don't think he looks under 5ft 11 really the more I see of him.
Jeevehs said on 2/Aug/20
I saw Ronaldo and son walking together after their match against each other and son looked an inch shorter than Ronaldo who is 6’1.
Mone Kamishiraishi said on 24/Jul/20
Well, I have always thought that he is a legit 6 ft (183cm) guy. But when I saw him standing next to Harry Kane (Weak 6 ft 2 guy) that day, he was clearly about 3 inches shorter than him. Quite disappointed that he claimed his height in shoes.
Charlie Park said on 6/Jul/20
Was on the same flight with him back to Seoul. 180 or thereabouts.

To the commenter who asked, the young generation in S Korea is around 173-174.The average has never exceeded 174 (national military service records) and has plateaued.
Dom5'11.5 said on 15/May/20
I think he is 5'11.5, He is noticeably taller than david beckham in this video

J182 said on 14/May/20
180 is harsh imo. 182 for me.
Amadeus said on 3/Feb/20
Rob why do you think he was listed as a 6ft? As a 5 11 guy myself I don't think I could measure 6 barefoot even in the earliest time. Do you think they list some footballers height with shoes on?
Editor Rob
Some players might well measure in sneakers

Buahaha said on 24/Jan/20
It's laughable how some websites measure him as 6ft, let alone 5ft11. This guy is same height or barely taller than his coach Mourinho who's listed 5ft9. Given that his coach has any footwear advantage (which I doubt, cause it would be super obvious) in the photo taken, I'd give Son extra 1 inch max. That being said, he should more less be the same height as his team mate Ericsen (5ft10).
Nik Ashton said on 20/Jan/20
@ Rob - That’s interesting, I wouldn’t have guessed this!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Jan/20
David Beckon? - That has much amused me! Thanks Chris! 😂😂😂

Son can have 5ft11.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Jan/20
I would have pick Heung Min strong fraction taller than David Beckon and Sean Patrick Flanery. Closer to 5'11 1/4.
Anon11 said on 18/Jan/20
5'10" for Son.
Blake said on 17/Jan/20
Rob, what do you think about this photo with mourinho who has footwear advantage and won’t have exerted himself as much as son as it looks like a photo taken after a game? I think 179cm range suits son for me from looking at photos of him. Click Here
Editor Rob
I can see how at times Sun looks 179...
Calum said on 17/Jan/20
I’ve been waiting for this listing for a while to see what Rob thought, after seeing the Christian Eriksen listing I thought that Son couldn’t possibly be the 6ft that he’s listed at pretty much everywhere. After looking at more and more photos of Son with teammates I find it hard to believe he’s even over 5ft11 now, I’d 5ft10 3/4 at best.
Aaron Rosales said on 16/Jan/20
Rob any thoughts on wolves player raul Jiménez? I think he's 6'2, Napoli Player Chucky Lozano 5'7
Editor Rob
If you see him with Patrick Kluivert, then 6ft 2 could be possible
Nik Ashton said on 16/Jan/20
@ Rob - What is the average height for men in South Korea?
Editor Rob
Younger guys are getting on average closer to 174-5 range I believe.
AndrewV said on 15/Jan/20
Doesn’t look like a flat 5’11”, I’d give him around 181cm. He’s about 88th percentile around Korean men ages 18-24, always looks solid tall in every group photo or video of him among Koreans.
Andrew fletcher said on 14/Jan/20
Thanks rob you do listen to your followers on YouTube
Charlie Hurris said on 14/Jan/20
Can confirm a weak 5ft11 here. Bordering on a 5ft10 but would push the rating slightly
King7 said on 12/Jan/20
lol i used to believe his 183 cm listing wtf . still 180 cm is a very good height to me

but yes he did look more than 8 cm shorter next to Eric Dier in an interview
Abey said on 12/Jan/20
Strong 5'11. Can definitely see Son at 5'11 ½. Has usually taller hairstyles with some thick hair which makes him look extra tall. Good player with a good height.
Joseph175 said on 12/Jan/20
He looks taller than 5’11 flat. I always thought he is 181-182 cm.
Rory said on 12/Jan/20
Is he really 3 inches shorter than Dele Alli though ? Never seemed that much to me, looked more a 2-2.5 inch difference.
ron swanson said on 12/Jan/20
There is a video with him and Jack Whitehall where he looks 6ft
Adrian Mac said on 12/Jan/20
Rob, do you think within the next century, the averages for the taller Asians (Northern Chinese & South Korean) will reach 5'11?
Editor Rob
The South Korean average has increased and hasn't plateuad like America for instance. I believe the young 18-20 year old South Koreans are nearer 5ft 9 on average now. It would take a lot longer for a country to reach average 5ft 11 though.
FiveEightJake said on 12/Jan/20
Yesssss Heung Min Don, great addition Rob he could look in the weak 5’11 range when I’ve looked at him.
Editor Rob
It's arguable 5ft 11 is really the most I'd go with.
