Good things come in small packages, and that is certainly true for these young musicians in the K-pop music industry. These petite popstars are shorter than the average female height in South Korea – around 5’3” (around 160cm) – but they stand tall in the music world.
Their small stature might make you think of them as ‘cute’ or ‘adorable’, but don’t forget they are talented performers. They’ve managed to win the hearts of fans all around the world thanks to their cheery personalities and down-to-earth natures.
Here are our favourite fun-sized K-pop idols, as well as the reasons why we love them.
