I always find it quite amusing when netizens start making a fuss about an idol’s or actor’s height on TV and how it doesn’t match the “official” height listed on the official website. Really, what’s the matter? Is it so bad that people want to be taller than they actually are? A lot of people would love to be taller and would want to find a way to grow an extra few inches. But you know, TV can always distort heights. There’s also the issue of the ground that they’re standing on. It doesn’t necessarily have to be flat ground - there could be a little incline that could change heights.
Say Idol A is listed at 6′. Idol B is listed at 5′9. The two appear on the same show and bam! They look the same height. Netizens will cry foul, but here’s some food for thought: netizens, have you ever thought that maybe Idol B doesn’t like their tall height and downgrades their height on their website/facts, making it seem like they’re shorter than their real height? Bet you didn’t think of that. I know some people who don’t like their tall height and would prefer to be a few inches shorter.
But honestly, I don’t see the harm in height differences. Do I love an idol for their height or for their personality and charms? Definitely the latter. Just because they’re “shorter” than they claim doesn’t make me love them less. They are who they are - to me, appearances don’t matter.
