Song Joong-ki Height

I like having conversations: you learn a lot about how other people think. If I'm myself and confident, I don't get nervous easily. I try not to make other people uncomfortable - I think that's a very arrogant thing to do.

Famous South Korean actor, Song Joong-ki is known for his role in TV series such as Sungkyunkwan Scandal and the variety show Running Man and in films such as A Werewolf Boy, The Battleship Island, and Space Sweepers.

About Song Joong-ki's Real Height

Song Joong-ki's height is a matter of suspicion and contention. You can find his height listed anywhere from 5’6” to 5’10” on the internet.

In his personal profile though, Song Joong Ki’s height was listed as 5 feet 10 inches (178 cm) However, the height gap between him and his co-actors led to suspicions that Song is actually a lot shorter than he claims to be.

An article on the Korean blogging platform history even proposed that the actor is actually 5'8" (173 cm) tall.

Judging from behind the scenes and even photos of the actor, some even said that he barely reached 171 cm. Like when Song is standing next to Jin Goo, who is  177 cm tall and towers over Song by several inches.

Anyway, from what we have seen of Song, like when he is standing next to his wife Katy Louise Saunders, who is 5 feet 6 inches tall, we think Song is around 5'7½" (172 cm), tall -- around 2.5 inches shorter than his official height.

Well, no one is surprised. For some reason, Korean celebrities take their heights a lot more seriously than their western counterparts -- they like to look taller than they really are. The use of hidden shoe lifts is actually quite common among them.

The height of Song Joong-ki is

5 ft 7½ in (171.5 cm)

Realistically, looks offer an advantage to an actor. I'm going to work hard to maintain my skin. I'm going to prevent aging as much as possible. And I will keep trying to become a better person on the inside as much as I spruce up the outside.
