Thanks to the expertise of K-netizens we have another fun “pick your fave” topic – height differential. K-drama casting probably doesn’t take it into account but as viewers it’s definitely something that adds or detracts from the watch experience. I don’t mind same height leads if they have great body language chemistry and sometimes a super big height difference crosses the line from swoony to cartoonish. My fave is probably that sweet spot of 23-25 cm (see above), and follow by a still nice gap of 20 cm. Check out the visual layout below ranging from no height difference (after the female lead wears heels) to slowly increasing all the up to a 30 cm height difference. The last one is so ridiculous it’s comical, the K-drama Abyss wasn’t just a terrible story it also gave us the zero chemistry and freakish height difference between Park Bo Young and Ahn Hyo Seob, a triple whammy if ever there was one.
