As a short woman myself, I always love my fellow short-ies who see the world at the same height I do. While many of the K-pop females have spider legs and most of the K-pop males reach over 5'9", there are a handful of singers who always need to make sure they meet the height requirements before getting on a rollercoaster. Here are some of the shortest idols in K-pop!
Girls Generation's Sunny is only 5'1", 155cm, which makes her even more adorable than she was before. Her official profile states that she's 158cm, but she admitted on a variety show that she only stands at a whopping 5 foot and 1 inch from the group. How cute is she?
Minzy could be 3'2" and she'd still have more talent in her pinky finger tham most other idols in K-pop

For TEEN TOP, who debuted in July of 2010 with their first single ‘Clap‘, the achievement took them exactly 564 days after their debut.

Because this week is going to be Sunny!
Sunny Sunny Sunny! I love you, I need you(r strength)?
As the shortest member in SNSD, Sunny holds a special place in our hearts (and special shoes for amusement park rides). Previously one of the most underrated members, she’s quickly gained the attention of many; thanks to her cheerful personality, caring nature, and do-it-all capabilities displayed on Invincible Youth. But it’s more than just.. attention. It’s love.
