The average height back in 2005 was a mere 160 CM, fast forward 6 years, and what’s the average height now? Well, let’s just say it’ll put even male idols to shame!

The tall idol group of the past was definitely LPG, whom had stunned the audience with their heights. Their tallest member had been 180 CM, with the next tallest following at a close 175 CM, with the average height of all existing idols to be 160 CM. However, it’s been 6 years since then, and the average has increased quite fairly.

Already in 2007, the average height of debuting girl groups was 163 CM; (Wonder Girls), 164cm (SNSD) and 161cm (Kara), succeeding in breaking the 160cm average.

However this year in 2011, the debuting rookies seem to have had a major growth spurt, for the girl groups Nine Muses, LPG 2, April Kiss, After School, Dal Shabet and RaNia have managed to get the average height up to 170cm with their average heights of 172cm, 170cm, 173cm, 168cm, 169cm, and 170cm, respectively.

Most of the girls end up as tall as 180 CM when wearing their heels. And it’s safe to say that male idols would definitely feel weak in height when it comes to these rookies!
