How tall is Simu Liu
Photo by Sushi /
Top of the morning, straight out of bed, with a nice platform on the shoe I could hit about six feet, but probably, usually walking around I'm a lot closer to Five-Eleven. Which is really, it's not great. It's not great. The difference between Five-Eleven and six foot, it's so disheartening feeling like you're right on the cusp.

179 is too low for this guy after seeing him in barbie. 180 or 180.5 more likely
Mipha said on 12/Sep/23
Simu looked slightly shorter or taller than Ryan Gosling depending on the angle in Barbie. Same footwear. Ground could be uneven.

Hey, Rob, who would you think would edge out the other, Simu or BTS RM?
Editor Rob
RM leaves me with a taller impression.

Standing next to 5’9.5 Ewan McGregor. Looks about the same or less than 1” taller
FloJ said on 14/Jan/23
He can claim 180 and nobody would question it. 182-183 would be quite noticeably off.
Malcolm Oliver said on 2/Oct/22
I’ve noticed a lot of people this height like to claim 6ft. 5’10.5 seems to be the minimum to “pass” for that mark.

With Jon Batiste, who you agreed with me is 5'10"(ish):

Definitely not a thing over currently listed, and I think he's shorter, honestly. He also obviously wears some kind of small lifts during certain appearances.
TheDutchGuy said on 20/Aug/22
Straight out of bed he must be 5'9.5" at best and 5'9" in the rest of the day. Needs downgrade. Look at his pictures with Wong.
Kalind said on 7/Aug/22
This listing sounds about right since he’s visibly taller near the 5’6 Hayley Atwell. Click Here
Ineedsleep said on 27/Jul/22
I honestly think he is 5’10.5, in two different links below standing side by side with Benedict Wong, it clearly shows Simu is a little taller by a quarter or half. Benedict Wong is already listed as 5’10 and quarter
Phastest said on 22/Jul/22
Steph Curry is 6’2 and towered over him during the espy awards. He’s 5’10 max.

I think the 5ft 10.75 was closer.
5'10 1/4 Asian guy said on 12/Apr/22
On his instagram when he is standing right next to 5'10 Benedict wong, he really looked 5'7-5'8 range rob, how do you think??
172 SEA Guy said on 19/Jan/22
I believe that Simu Liu wakes up at 181 and walks around comfortably between 179-180 for most of the day. I don't see him dropping below 178. He can look shorter at times in pictures due to posture. Definitely in the average range in Western Countries when it comes to younger men.
FloJ said on 10/Jan/22
Adding to the below comments. His 6’0 in shoes morning height claim is really interesting. He said he is 5’11 morning and with a pair of shoes he hits 6’0.
Matt N said on 8/Jan/22
Out of interest, Rob, how tall do you think Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, the actor who plays Mr Kim in Kim’s Convenience, might be? He’s listed in a few places at 5’10”, and if Simu is as listed, then I could personally see that sort of figure or slightly below (perhaps 177cm, a similar height to myself?), but I wasn’t sure what your thoughts were?

I’m not really sure, to hear honest, as it seems to vary; sometimes, I find he can look very close in height to Simu, yet other times he can look more noticeably shorter. For instance, when he stood next to a “life size” cardboard cutout of Simu’s character in one episode, he was noticeably shorter and even commented “was Jung really this tall?” and cut off a section of the cutout to make it closer to his own height…

What are your thoughts, Rob?

claims 5'11 here, says 6 ft is with shoes on
SD172 said on 14/Dec/21
According to this intreview:Click Here @0:26 How tall is Simu Liu? He says that right out of bed with the right platform on the shoe...He could hit 6'0 but admits he's closer to 5'11 and he admits it' weird being that close to 6'0 and playfully teases what so many 5'11 guys feel.

Hey Rob, how tall do you think Destin Daniel Cretton is? I thought I saw some people throwing around 6'1 for him. He looks to have anywhere from 1.5 inches+ over Simu, although unlike you I feel like Simu is at least 5'11. Also, Destin holds up extremely well with Florian Munteanu.

Has he listed his height somewhere like Taika Waititi?
Editor Rob
Yeah he can look a couple of inches taller than Simu, so likely clears 6ft
Alejandro Regalaldo said on 12/Sep/21
He says he’s 5’11 1/2 on the latest GQ Video.
Jjj177 said on 3/Sep/21
This is a baffling picture: Click Here

Simu doesn’t look above 5ft 10 with Benedict Wong, how is this possible?
Editor Rob
can look a 5ft 9 guy there, though in other shots not quite that short.
Cooper Chance said on 7/Jun/21
Is there a page for Andrea Bang, another actress who was on Kim's Convenience? I ask because shes barely taller then her on screen mom who is 5'1", yet shes listed as 5'8"! :o
Editor Rob
Nicole Power claimed 5ft 6...if that's true then Andrea may be 5ft 2 at most and beside Simu, she does look short
Dom5'11.5 said on 24/Apr/21
Close to 180cm, his proportion makes him look 5’9/5’10. just goes to show going from 5’11 to 6’0 where you start to look tall
Walle said on 19/Apr/21
Liu with 6'2 Jeremy Lin Click Here What do you think about this picture, Mr. Rob ?
Editor Rob
could be 5ft 10.5 there.
BluSkies59 said on 2/Feb/21
He's probably 5'10 and a bit. Check out this pic with him and Benedict Wong.

Those particular shoes he's wearing the photo have a decent lift to them too
Jake A said on 12/Jan/21
Looks 5'10 flat to me.
Xingran Peter Sun said on 8/Jan/21
This dude's at least 5'11, in some photos he does look 6 ft as he is listed
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Dec/20
Click Here Jamie Foxx look 5'11 1/2 from top of head with Simu but camera angle help Foxx a little more. Maybe Jamie Foxx had follow a young Sly step's of secretly fitting in a 3" hidden lift nowadays. Lol.
Matty ice said on 22/Dec/20
Looks 5'11 to me, maybe a little more. Good comedic chops
Eric W Tam said on 10/Dec/20
I guess he can have 179-180, 5'11 in the morning, 5'10 solid before bed, that's my bet. I saw someone mention Hudson Yang. Looks like Google has a lot of inches to update for the kid. He is listed as 5'10 but he's mentioned as being 6'2 on some article I read about the up and rising star, and I say 6'2 is closer to the truth than 5'10 for Hudson! What do you think Rob?
NotSimuLiu said on 20/Jul/20
Seems 6'4 to me
Mark Fez said on 5/May/20
Seems like 5'11 to me... Some dudes putting like 5'9 and I think they need their eyes checked
Joseph175 said on 25/Jan/20
He could be more of a strong 5’10.
MD said on 2/Jan/20
@Erm, here is the picture of him with Foxx:

Click Here

At least with this pic, it is hard to see 5'11" being an accurate listing. I could do 5'10" taking into account possible footwear differences and angles, but that's about it.
JN said on 23/Oct/19
Seems 5'11ish to me.
Erm said on 2/Oct/19
Very good looking guy and a really great role model, much needed for young Asian Americans who are underrepresented!

Looks about the same height as Jamie Fox (5’9) in a recent picture together. They are too close together (it actually seems Fox edges him by a little, to be honest, but there could be footwear differences and angles we can’t see) to be giving him a 2-inch edge over Foxx. A previous photo of him with Serena Williams (also 5’9 presumably) appears to give him an edge, although the camera angle and her posture could be deceiving the 1.5 inch gain he seemef to have over her.

I would downgrade his listing to 5’9 1/2 - 5’10. I think it’s unlikely that he’s 5’11.

@Legend Check out Click Here here look at 180-181cm Michael Vartan on pr photo look like a 5'8 guy standing alone.
Tall Sam said on 29/Jul/19
Be interesting to see how this guy would compare to someone like Leonardo DiCaprio. I don't think there's much credence in judging someones height in a photo by themselves.
Legend said on 25/Jul/19
Rob I'm not doubting that this guy is between 5 ft 10/11 with my guess being in the middle at 179cm, but why does he only look 5 ft 8/9 in the pic above is it his proportions.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Jul/19
Standing alone he does look 5'9 but in Taken he look over 5'10 close to 5'11.
Joseph175 said on 24/Jul/19
I think his lowest will be 179ish. However through out most of the day he should be 180. Good listing!
hi123 said on 24/Jul/19
How tall do you think the kid from fresh off the boat. He seems taller than this guy his name is Hudson Yang. As far as this guy Im surprised with 180 I think hes shorter tbh
Animus said on 23/Jul/19
Yeah, he's not close to six feet. In fact he seems to struggle with 5'11 in that picture.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Jul/19
He can only look 6'0 with his leather shoes on.
JoJoke said on 22/Jul/19
180 cm? Are you serious, Rob? He looks way shorter than that.
Editor Rob
Standing alone, he has a frame that suggests he could be 5ft 9-10 range, but I'm not sure he really looks that short.
Piers said on 22/Jul/19
Yeah he's definitely not 6ft. He has a lot of pictures with Jeremy Lin, and there's always at least 3 inches between them. Sometimes 4 inches.

He also had a picture with Benedict Cumberbatch yesterday at San Diego Comic Con, and looked shorter than him too.

I've seen interviews of him over the years, and he's a bit cocky to the point where I think him inflating his height is possible haha.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 22/Jul/19
Oh, so another star from 'Taken' has crossed my path today, the other being Terence Stamp, who celebrates his Birthday today. I have a copy upstairs which I still haven't seen, but I do know the film very well.

At 5ft11, Simu is tall enough to be manacing, but in all honesty, I've seen MUCH smaller guys do menacing just spot-on perfecto 👌!

Anyway, I'm sure that Simu's part in 'Taken' does take the scary, creeped-out route! I'll just have to watch it when my new telly arrives! 📺😋

I'm loving the colour of his suit! ⚡🐦

Seems to be true.

I think six feet for this chap looks too high.
