The belief that a person has to be over 180 centimeters tall to look like models is indeed a misperception. There’s one thing that’s more important than height, and that’s body proportions.
Here are 6 idols who are closer to being 170 centimeters tall but end up looking a lot taller thanks to their long limbs and small faces:
Kwanghee recently posted photos of himself flaunting his small face and long legs that made him look taller than 180 centimeters despite being 175 centimeters tall.
In a past variety show, Kwanghee was in the middle of talking about top idols of various categories when he added, “I have the best proportions. I’m short, but my proportions help.”

In a group full of members over 180 centimeters, Suho still manages to fit in thanks to his outstanding proportions. It also helps that he’s very good-looking.
