Weak 5'11 at worst, 5'11.25 at the absolute max imho. I'll go between 180-180.5 for him.

@Editor Rob,

But is BoA worth a page tho?

Should definitely get a page because She's just as famous as PSY, IU & other K-pop singers etc.
Regarding her height, maybe she did measure "157.8cm" on Carpet & is actually a legit 5'2.5" person, It's quite a distinct possibility that she under-measured herself as do some ppl.

What do u think Rob?

@Editor Rob,

Is “BoA” Korean Singer worth a page?

She shockingly claims at a specific “157.8cm” in the vid! But She can’t be under 5’2.5” tho IMO!! BTW She’s quite Famous Korean singer for the past 2 decades, and has so many hit songs then & now! My personal favourite of hers is "Girls on Top" & “Bump!”.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
To come out with such a figure suggests she maybe measured it...or was joking.

Any ideas on Wi Ha Joon, the guy who plays the detective (Hwang Jim Ho)?

He’s listed as 180cm, and I think he can look 5’10 1/2, maybe 5’11. His Instagram pictures proportions though looks like he’s 6’1.

Editor Rob
I can see from skimming his Instagram, that he has the look of a taller guy like 6ft range. Not exactly sure if he's 179 flat though.

Rob, how tall do you think Park Hae-Soo is, the guy who played Sang-Woo in Squid Game? He sometimes looks 6 foot with Jung-jae Lee but is it a greater possibility that he is 5’ 11 1/2”, considering the fact that Lee had poorer posture in their scenes together?
Editor Rob
5ft 11.5 is a possibility, more-so than 6ft.

@Editor Rob,

How tall is Famous Kpop Singer “BoA”?
Click Here

Best known for songs like “No. 1’, “Hurricane Venus”, “Copy & Paste”, “Moto” & “Shout It Out” etc. & Actress known in films like “Make Your Move” & “Big Match”.
She claims 160-162cm, But some profiles list her as 158cm? I would’ve said 5’2.5” is fair.
BTW It’s mentioned around the media that BoA is unhappy with her height LOL!

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
Very likely under 5ft 3, whether just 158? In some of the photos it looks possible actually.
Jackie Lee said on 20/Mar/22
Yeah he certainly looks taller than every one of them except for mingyu. I also doubt woozi is the 5'5 he's listed as, he looks too small to be that height. He's probably around 5'3, if that.

@Editor Rob,

What convinced u that he’s 5’11” flat?

With ppl like Byung Hun Lee, Liam Nesson, Steven Colbert, Dong-Seok Ma & Ho Yeon Jung (especially), He’s clearly a Strong 5’11” (if not 11.5” arguably). In addition, He’s similar to Jang Dong-Gun and Kwon Sang Woo (Both strong 5’11”) & taller than Bong Joon-Ho (who’s also clearly taller than Jake Gyllenhaal). 5’11” flat doesn’t make any sense from what I’m seeing.
He’s Listed 181-2cm on his Korean profiles & wouldn’t surprise me if he claims that.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure he really looked 5ft 11.5, although you could say 11.25 has a better chance than under 5ft 11
FE said on 12/Feb/22
@Editor Rob,

How tall does “Kwon Sang Woo” look w/ Jung Jae?
Click Here

At least 5’11.5” is a fair shout overall.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
5ft 11.25 maybe 11.5
Psuedo said on 2/Feb/22
Hey Rob, assuming equal footwear, how tall do you estimate the guy on the right? If Lee Jung jae is the actual 5'11

Click Here
Editor Rob
Maybe half inch difference
FE said on 1/Jan/22
@Editor Rob,

Then 181cm is a better shout?

From all I’ve seen, he looks a good 5’11-11.5” guy to me. Certainly taller than just 180cm!

Do u agree Rob?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't go much beyond 5ft 11
FE said on 1/Jan/22
@Editor Rob,

5’11.25-11.5” is a very fair shout?

Listed 181-2cm on Korean sites, Definitely over 5’11” for sure.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
I wasn't as convinced he'd be over 5ft 11...but if he was, a small fraction.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 1/Jan/22
i think he's a good 5'11, he can look like it easily with Liam Neeson, who i think today are just 6'3 with a little fraction, tho he can look like 5'10 guy with Leonardo DiCaprio, and in squid game, he slouch a lot, i used to think he was only 5'10 ish or maybe even my height.
Malcolm Oliver said on 12/Dec/21
@JHJ Fair enough. I think that range hovers around above average to tall in comparison to the general male population; with actors having a higher average in height compared to men overall. 5’11 is most likely above average for South Korean males.
JHJ said on 3/Dec/21
@Malcolm Oliver

Yeah I think 5'10-6'1 seems fair. I haven't done research but for all I know most Korean male actors are in 178-183cm range.
Malcolm Oliver said on 30/Nov/21
@JHJ What would you say the average height for actors is? Obviously it differs from country to country, but I would say the range between 5’10-6’1 is fair.
JHJ said on 26/Nov/21
@a 5'11.5
Actually Jung-jae is not tall considering he's an actor. In Korea, male actors are a bit taller than average men.
Andrea said on 17/Nov/21
Did you manage to find a claim/agency's listing, Rob?
Without having more known people to compare him with, I guess this is possible...
With Neeson he can actually look at least 6'-6'1 (assuming Neeson is near his 6'3.5 listing), but then the same Neeson doesn't even look 6'3 most of the time (in recent years at least)...
Editor Rob
I didn't see an obvious one
Crab said on 17/Nov/21
Huh, with Neeson I would have guessed 5ft 11 1/2, but that photo with DiCaprio he barely looks 5ft 10. It's possible since we can't see their feet, that Leo has some kind of offscreen advantage, or Lee is stooping slightly. He is definitely not sub 5ft 10 unless he has some crazy good lifts, so I assume that Leo photo is an anomaly.

5ft 11.
Malcolm Oliver said on 15/Nov/21
Seeing that photo with DiCaprio too makes me question 5’11, but in most other instances, he seems to maintain that height with others. Will give him the benefit of the doubt and say he’s at that mark.
Tall Sam said on 14/Nov/21
Yeah he really does look quite solid near Neeson, would’ve guessed him a six footer from those shots alone.
Jerry183 said on 11/Nov/21
I'm not quiet sure about his height, i've seen some recent pictures where he is next to Liam Neeson and hold ups pretty well. But there are other photos, like him next to Leonardo Dicaprio, where Jung jae looks considerably shorter, but it's hard to tell. Also there is another pic of Harry Shum Jr (listed at 5'11) next to squid game cast, and he looks taller than Jung-Jae and also Park Hae-Soo.
Dom5'11.5 said on 8/Nov/21
yep about 180.5cm
Timelessclassic said on 7/Nov/21
@Rob how tall do you think Park Hae-Soo is? He seems to have an inch on Jung-Jae
Editor Rob
He looked a bit taller, but only an inch I feel because of postural difference.

@Jackie Lee
If I'm not mistaken the average height of young men in northern and urban China is 5'9-5'10. You're right though it's really not surprising to see Asian guys that are in the 5'10-6'1 range. Very common actually
Jackie Lee said on 4/Nov/21
5'9 is definitely about average for East Asian men. The number of Chinese guys I see above that mark is insane.
FE said on 3/Nov/21
@Editor Rob,

Good Addition! How tall is Jang Dong-Gun then?
Click Here

Legit 181cm seems very fair, If Jung is 5’11” himself.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
They could look quite close, when Jung has better posture, so that 181 figure seems believable.
griana arande said on 3/Nov/21
at least 5'10.75. strong 5'11.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 3/Nov/21
Thanks, Rob! I didn't think I recognized him from the one I've got.
ppc said on 3/Nov/21
Average height of young Korean men is like 5'9. One of the tallest averages in Asia and not much lower than most Western countries.

179~180

Definitely not 6 feet and too tall to be 5’10 good listing

Could argue 5’11 1/4

He's a tallish actor considering he's Korean.

Looks about a 1 1/2 inches shorter than 184cm Gong Yoo so i say 180cm on the dot

@ Rob - How tall is the lady?
Editor Rob
On her agency she is given 165cm
Thorfinn said on 1/Nov/21
Spot on listing
Angle said on 1/Nov/21
Looks this listing and could even look taller at times in Squid Game IMO. The "taller" members of the male cast all looked 5'10-5'11 range. He slouches a lot during squid game, but still gave off a "Tall" impression compared to the majority of the cast.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Nov/21
Jung-jae looks quite tall, and I can believe 5ft11.

So he was in 'Deliver Us From Evil', was he? What a brilliant film, and very scary. I'll be looking out for him next time I see it.

5ft11. 😃👌
