Looks pretty close to 6'2 with 5'11 Lee Jung Jae. He's wearing pretty flat dress shoes, so maybe 0.75 inch advantage to Lee Jung jae shoe wise, but still.

Isn't average in SK like near 5'8" though? Depending on whether it's anywhere from 5'7" or 5'8", he'd be borderline "very tall" in my book.

I think he could be 6ft1½ earlier in the day and that's where the 187cm on his agency listing comes from. Strong 6ft1 is likelier than weak, IMO

In South Korea he'd be considered very tall
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Apr/22
Rob, maybe 186cm like he claims?
Editor Rob
Maybe he got measured near it earlier in the day.
Dom5'11.5 said on 24/May/21
He is 186cm, 6’1 flat seems too Low for him even at his lowest night height. Lee Kwang Soo is 192cm and Kim woo him whom appears along side lmh in the heirs show is 187cm. They often tower over other Korean actors

Hey Rob.

What do you think of Song Joong ki?

He is listed 178 cm on Google.

In Rob, we trust.
Editor Rob
I'm not as sure on Song just now

I believe minho is 6ft1, but if his real height is actually 6ft1 1/4in, i can see kwang-soo being a 6ft3 1/2in or 6ft3 3/4in.

He once confirmed on TV show that he is 1m86, so at least we know he is not 1m87 :v (source: Click Here)

He is lefit 186cm guy need upgrade

I still have faith on 186cm measurement for Min-ho. Def not a morning height for him. He really don't look just flat 185cm or 6'1, have already consider different occasion and type of footwear he wore its more on comparison with well-known height actors, 186cm stay deep in impression. 6'1 5/8 is def his morning height probably 6'2 out of bed.

Most of the time, yeah haha. But sometimes i do encouter some dude that close to my height, especially the younger generation are really tall. I already see 3-4 guys near or my height in my uni.
FIONA WILSON said on 11/Nov/20
Lee Min-ho had an extremely bad car accident in 2006, resulting in 6 months in hospital. A long pin was put in the upper part of one of his legs, leaving it shorter than the other. It may well be that his shoes have been adjusted to even his gait.
PYoo810 said on 4/Nov/20
See his pictures, specifically his ankles. The bulge on the inner side, it's noticeably high in suspicious shoes. Lol.

And in most premieres, he wears obvious high heeled dress shoes. Which btw are pretty common there, nothing out of the blue.


At 185cm in Vietnam, you just be a giant? I went, and at 179/180, I felt very very tall haha
185vietnamese said on 11/Oct/20
He wearing lifts at 185cm? That’s wild. I’m actually encountered many koreans in my country, the tallest i have met is probably around my height.
PYoo810 said on 4/Oct/20
@Chris Hernandez,
Notice their shoes and ankles, mate. South Korean actors. More often than not, they're wearing shoes with lifts, or insoles. It's pretty common there. Min-ho does, too. He's a 185 guy, nothing more.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Aug/20
Min-ho deserved 1/4 upgrade. He claim 186cm in different occasion get described as 187cm in some k-pop news. It's not that i just believe his words also he looks it alot more than just 6'1.

Hey Big Rob,

if Lee is 185cm, how tall is the guy next to him? (the one that wears tie)
Editor Rob
could be 180cm range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jul/20
187cm he could have got early morning. Definitely think he looks a solid 6ft1 guy more often than not...
Mone Kamishiraishi said on 24/Jul/20
I reckon he is about 185-186 cm tall. Definitely not more than that.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Jul/20
In City Hunter Kwang-Soo look 8cm taller than Min-ho.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/May/20

To be honest through out the full clip on running man i can see a more solid 4cm between Ryan and Lee Kwang Soo, some better camera adjustment also seem bigger than 4cm gap but Reynolds look to be slouching a little.


Impossible that Kim Jong Kook can fully tell they're exactly the same height. Remember that Pogba had a better posture than Lee Kwang Soo and it look more convincing that Lee Sung Kyung did not lie about Lee Kwang Soo real height of 6'4. I've watch many episode of Running Man and came to certain point that i have long ago suspect Kwang-soo is over his initially 190cm claim next to 5'10 Yoo Jae Soo. Kim Jong Kook also claim 5'10 but we can always tell there is a solid half inch between Yoo and Kim's height. Some people round down and most people round up their height, an asian celebrity who was as tall as Kwang-soo would usually downplay a little lower than the true height doesn't strike people as impossible.
BB9 said on 7/Apr/20
@Chris Junior Hernandez1990 jong kook kim met paul pogba and he mentioned it in one of the episodes of runningman that paul pogba and kwang soo lee are the exact same height. Rob listings are reliable enough. Here? Paul Pogba’s height is 6’ 3”. Lee can hit the 6’ 4” look when wearing thick shoes nonetheless.

At 11:20 Lee Kwang Soo look like 3-4 cm taller than Ryan.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Mar/20
@BB9 Nope. Lee Kwang Soo atually claim to be 190cm not 191 from the past but the 5'9-5'9 1/2 internet listed actress but honest self claim 5'8 1/2 Lee Sung Kyung have mention before filming with Kwang-soo she learned that he is atually 6'4 not 6'2 3/4. Lee Min-ho isn't below 3" on Kwang-soo, if he is only 6'1 that will be very legit. But i still think he look alot more on 6'1 1/4.
BB9 said on 29/Feb/20
Kpop stars are usually being encouraged by their agency to claim 2cm taller than their actual height (it is showbiz), most of them wear shoe lifts as well especially during live concerts. Kwang-soo Lee says he is 191cm tall, he seems to be a perfect example of a 6’3” (190.5cm) guy. Most people argue he is 6’4” so that they can claim a taller heights for their favourite stars. I do agree that South Korean are taller in average as compared to other Asian countries.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 4/Feb/20
@Dom5'11.5 Lee Min Ho is a decent 3" shorter than Lee Kwang Soo in City Hunter not 4.5cm. Kwang Soo is more like 6'4 1/4 than 6'2 3/4 downplaying listing. I agree Minho is 186cm i wouldn't argue lower but Rob def under list him.
Dom5'11.5 said on 9/Oct/19
Here are my height guesses for some famous korean actors
Lee Kwang Soo: 190.5cm
Kim Woo Bin:187cm
Lee min Ho:186cm
Kris: 185.5cm
lee jong suk: 185cm flat
Ok Taecyeon: 184cm
Tvxq Changmin: 183.5cm
Rain: 182cm
Tvxq Yunho: 181.6cm
song joong ki: 175.8cm
Dom5'11.5 said on 9/Oct/19
I reckon he is 186cm, he towers over most of his fellow actors/actress and he easily looks the tallest whenever he is on screen. One of the tallest korean actors. 186cm would be more accurate
michale lee said on 30/Sep/19
hey rob I see near min ho lee his list 187cm real height understand?
realy height 187cm
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Sep/19
21, Kim Woo Bin had say he is 6'2 on a tv show and seem legit i never heard of 6'1 1/2 for him and internet listing there are some 6'1 5/8 and mostly 6'2 and a few site given 6'2 1/2. Kim is more like 2cm taller than Lee Min Ho on their K drama i have watched, have consider Lee's shoes advantage. Kris had poorer posture than Kim can look 3cm shorter which is only 2cm if Kris stand better. Min Ho and Kris is potentially 6'1 1/4 guy.
rando182 said on 21/Aug/19
Korea and Northern China are the tallest among East/Southeast Asians. Average height of young men is around 5'9/175cm.
21 said on 21/Aug/19
@Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 I think the chances are higher for Lee Min Ho to be 186cm than Kris Wu. Lee seems to hold up better with Kim Woo Bin (South Korean actor) who is listed as 187cm, and I could only see a fraction of an inch between them at times. In the dramas they starred together I thought they were pretty equal in height at times but I think Kim would be the taller one by a shade.

Here is a pic of Kris Wu and Kim Woo Bin and I see at least an inch difference when looking at their eye and shoulder level so I think Kris looks 185 max here if Kim is 187cm. Of course, there are no pics of all three of them standing together so it's just my two cents.

IMO we are talking about a fraction of an inch difference here so it's still arguable.
Kris Wu: 6'1 (185cm)
Lee Min Ho: 6'1 1/4 (186cm)
Kim Woo Bin: 6'1 1/2 (187cm) (not added to the site yet but I reckon he would measure a fraction more than Lee Min Ho)
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Aug/19
I clearly see the potential of 186cm on Min-Ho not gotta measure under it just like Kris Wu.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Jun/19
Click Here Minho look at least 1.5" taller than weak 6'0 Wallace Chung. I still bet on 6'1.25" but not 6'1 5/8 from his agency. He look a bit too tall to fit in 6'1.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/May/19
Click Here People should see this guy, Lee Kwang Soo supposed downplay 6'2.75" in Running Man and look at least 6'3.75" with Min-ho and the picture atually had disadvantage tilt down from Kwang-soo side so he should be 6'4.25". He should be one of the tallest south korean actor. Click Here Another picture here can see he slouch a little talking to Min-ho and still look over 2" taller if push down Min-ho hair. Click Here i found a site listed him at 6'4 but written 194cm. I think he is at least 6'4.

The younger generation of korea is really tall. The older generation of Korea seem short.
I see alot of aboard Idian and Korean in my city and i would say they are really tall, could be almost as tall as caucasian.
In ten guys there will be a guy above 6ft for sure.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Apr/19
I 100 percent sure Min-ho is an easy 6'1 1/4 not just 6'1.
AndrewV said on 20/Mar/19
Average for young Korean men is 173cm-174cm according to conscription data. Min-ho would be around the 97th or 98th percentile of height according to this chart: Click Here
Peter175 said on 18/Mar/19
Christian the younger guys are around my height.

They all do military service and probably have the most extensive height stats of any country. For the 18-24 age bracket they had 174cm and some of them might not be fully grown. I'll try to find the stat.

So 5'7 for a young korean male is on the shorter side, just like 5'8.5 is shorter side for a young american

average in North Korea is closer to 5’6 though.

Average for a Korean guy at 5'6" is a joke. I wouldn't be surprised if the average is almost 5'8", especially the younger generation.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/19
182cm is a joke
cmillzz said on 15/Mar/19
Maybe the average for South Korean males of all ages is under 5’8, but for the younger generation it’s definitely higher.
cmillzz said on 15/Mar/19
Koreans aren’t short, especially compared to other Asians. I’d say the average young South Korean male is at minimum 5’8, possibly near 5’9. Not really that uncommon to see young Korean guys over 6 feet tall these days. I doubt a 6 footer will feel very tall in Seoul.
Crush said on 15/Mar/19
He is 186cm
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 15/Mar/19
@Rampage Possible measure 6'1 1/2 range morning get round up 187 cm while Min Ho had ever claim 6'1 1/4 twice on some korean tv show from the past, should be his legit height. Rob might just under list him by a 1/4. Which is rare, like Caitlin Gerard being listed 172cm by agency and always look 171cm range but she only get listed 5'7 in this site.

@Miss Sandy Cowell

Yes he is. I'm 6'0 and half Korean. Never been to Korea, but when I visited Koreatown in LA it was rare to see anybody taller than me. I felt pretty dang tall. Same deal when walking around the various Korean supermarkets where I live near Seattle.


?? Koreans are known to be the tallest Asians, along with northern Chinese.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 15/Mar/19
@ Kevin - Hi! That comes as no undue surprise; do you think the average Korean male is about 5ft6?

What it must be like to stand out because of your height can't be an easy life unless you're super confident! It's probably a blessing to live in an area like Seattle, where there are plenty of different-heighted people walking about. To be conspicuous through no fault of your own can't be an easy life......

I live a stone's throw away from where Britain's one-time tallest man once lived and when I was at school (say 12 or 13), my Mum came home from work one evening all excitedly to tell us that she'd seen a man 'so tall that he could look into the top deck of a double decker bus!' She said that everyone had gathered round to gaze at him, and when some 7 or 8 years later, I saw him for myself, sure I followed him - into the supermarket and bought a tiny item (because I was broke!) just so that I could stand behind him in the queue, where I could take in the size of his feet and hands and clothes! I started seeing him regularly until we were on nodding terms, but the thought of being part of a thoughtless crowd of people staring at him as though he was an exhibit in a freak show is a pretty low- down thing to do. I thought that at the age of nearly 21 - it was New Year's Eve - and I thought there and then what a pain it must be to be stared at whenever and however you're feeling because you stand out must be AWFUL.

Imagine specially having to have your clothes made? That can't be much fun! You can't get a 'next day delivery' when you need something sharpish to wear!

I'm glad to say that the super-sized man, Christopher Greener, turned his height into celebrity status, and I think that he had every right to do that after years of being stared at inanely because of being so tall.

It can't be too bad to stand 6 or so inches above the average man of your nationality; in fact, most guys will envy you! For a Korean fellow, I'm assuming that you fall into the equivalent of a guy of 6ft3 for a Caucasian or African American, which is to many, male and female alike, a much-desired state of being!

I think if you are tall, it helps to be confident because you're always on show! Being under average gets you noticed too, but then anything even just a teeny bit out of the norm turns heads! It's part of the human condition, but with our superior brains, shouldn't we be a bit more understanding and exercise a touch more decorum?

Cheers Kevin!
Peter175 said on 14/Mar/19
Most young Korean males are around 5'9 so yes he is quite tall. Probably 95th percentile.

I don't think he's a giant or anything though, maybe the equal of a 6'2.5 american

At least 186cm not 185.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 12/Mar/19
Min-ho is particularly tall for a Korean. In fact, I'd say he's extremely tall. I don't know the average height for a person from South Korea, and it wouldn't half be interesting to find that one out!

Min-ho - here you go: 6ft1.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Mar/19
Rob, how about 6'1 1/4? He seem to claim 186cm twice on some korean show from the past.
Editor Rob
186 isn't an unreasonable estimate
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Mar/19
Rob, why not 187cm?
Editor Rob
From looking at him around 6ft 1 seemed ok, but I don't think he seemed a 187 range guy. His skinny frame certainly can help him look taller though.
