SHINee’s Jonghyun proves he is as tall as written in his online profile

SHINee‘s Jonghyun confirmed that the height revealed in his online profile matched his real height.

On a recent episode of MBC Everyone‘s ‘Weekly Idol‘, SHINee member Jonghyun revealed he had a lot to say about his height.

The singer remarked that his height was recorded as 173cm (5’8″) in his online profile. “There is talk amongst the fans that I am under 170cm (5’7)“,” he said. “NO! But I am definitely 173cm.”

Jonghyun stood next to MC Jung Hyung Don who is also 173cm to prove he was telling the truth. He clearly stood taller than Jung Hyung Don, but the MC was wearing flat shoes.

The segment begins around the 5:46 mark below!
