Collection of the Tallest K-actors in 2020 for Your Viewing Pleasure

I’ve watched K-dramas for so many years I’m almost inured to how insanely good looking the actors are and many who have equal talent to boot as well. Recently two dramas had me doing double takes and marveling at how those actors really filled up the screen with their height in ways that captivated my attention more than before. I’ve always dated tall guys and Mr. Koala is nearly 5’11” but I think anyone taller than me personally would be fine. As actors, I find any actor over 6′ really commanding onscreen and over 5’10” is plenty enough height to use that as an asset when acting. With that said, 6’2″ Nam Joo Hyuk went FULL VISUAL in Start-Up, it started when he dressed up to pretend to be letter Nam Do San and then the last four episodes his glow up after the time jump had me totally giggling like a school girl he was so ridiculously good looking.

On Kairos, Shin Sung Rok and Ahn Bo Hyun are killing it in their roles but their equal 6’2″ height makes their antagonist conflict so equally powerful onscreen that wouldn’t work nearly as well if they weren’t so tall together. So I decided to do a full assembly of the tallest K-actors working right now and capped it at 6’2″ because there is already over a dozen that height and taller, since there is like 2 dozen more in the 6’1″ and 6′ category. The tallest three are 6’4″ tall Kwang Soo, Lee Ki Woo, and Yoon Kyung Sang, then comes 6’3″ Ro Woon, and finally all those tall dudes below the jump. Among the group the only two I couldn’t believe were 6’2″ were Ahn Hyo Seop and Joo Ji Hoon, both are models when they debuted but for some reason (maybe because they are so skinny) they don’t seem that tall.
