IVE‘s Wonyoung and Yujin are famous for their tall heights, both measuring above 170cm. Because of their long legs, they are frequently praised for looking like models, and they instantly grab attention whenever they show up. Clearly, there are a lot advantages to it!
However, there is one noticeable disadvantage. Because they don’t match the heights of their fellow members, they have to make some adjustments to their choreographies. This was obvious in the dance of their recent comeback song “After LIKE,” which was inspired by disco sounds.
Eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that in one part of the choreography, they bend their knees significantly lower than the other members to match Gaeul‘s height.
The extra strain on their knees can’t be pleasant, but they’re complete professionals and make it look easy!
Thanks to their efforts, the heights of all members are consistent in the move.
Fans, however, had differing opinions on the way Wonyoung and Yujin bend their knees. Some noticed it immediately, others could tell that something was wrong but weren’t able to pinpoint it exactly, and still others only learned about it from fellow fans!
Several also voiced their worry that the girls may injure themselves—if not now, then eventually. Here’s to hoping the company will give the members choreographies that won’t hurt them in the short and long run.
