Welcome to the continuation of last week’s appreciation of fun-sized idols! In this case, “idols” is going to cover both actors and pop stars. And since I’m a little regretful that I didn’t put D.O. in the actor section, you guys get bonus D.O.
Turns out it is much more difficult to find lists of short actors, and since I’m a relative drama newbie, I didn’t have a vast library of people to pull from in my head. When I asked Stephanie for suggestions of actors who’d be good for this list, her suggestion was Ryu Deok Hwan, from God’s Quiz and Faith.
I was unfamiliar with him, so I went and looked him up. “Well, helllllo there!” I obviously have some gaps to fill in my Khottie knowledge. According to various sources, he’s 167cm tall, or approximately 5’6″. Seriously, I need to go put a couple of his dramas on my list right now.
Unlike idols, its a little hard to find an actor’s height just laying around on a profile somewhere. I had to do some looking. From my list of dramas though, I pulled two fantastic specimens. The first, Lee Hyun Woo.His character, Cha Eun Gyeol, in To the Beautiful You, gave me the most epic case of Second-Lead Syndrome ever. According to his official profile, Hyunwoo is 172 cm tall. You can’t see, but I’m giving that number squinty, suspicious eyes.
The other gem? Im Siwan, singer for ZE:A, and one of the stars of Incomplete Life. If you’ve watched it, you’ll understand I’m emotionally bonded to him after his role as Jang Geu Rae.He admitted on Weekly Idol that the height of 175cm on his profile was not his real height He looks tiny next to EXO’s, Chanyeol.
Moving on… to another idol actor (because thats pretty much all I have on my list), is Lee Gikwang of Beast, who will forever be Pink Chicken (from Me too, Flower!) to me.Gikwang’s official height is listed as 170cm, but based on videos and screen shots of him standing next to fellow celebrities with similar heights, he’s believed to be around 165 cm, or 5’5”.
I enjoyed watching him in Ms. Cop. And while I don’t care for revenge dramas, I may have to go watch a cut of his scenes from Monster.It’s like he’s concentrated down his sexy to fit in a smaller package!
