Song Joong Ki’s height received a lot of suspicions in the past. However, these suspicions died down after the actor’s latest dating news
The real height of Song Joong Ki has always been a topic of discussion on Korean forums, with many people accusing the actor of marking up his height by 10 cm.
However, the “Reborn Rich” star recently announced his relationship with a British woman, who is believed to be former actress Katy Louise Saunders. Katy’s height is 171 cm, so if she is truly Song Joong Ki’s girlfriend, the actor was never lying about his height.
Song Joong Ki marked his height up by 10 cm?
In his personal profile, Song Joong Ki’s height was listed at 178 cm. However, the height gap between him and male colleagues led to suspicions.
An article on the Korean blogging platform tistory even proposed that the actor is actually 173 cm tall. Judging from behind the scenes and even photos of the actor, some even said that he barely reached 171 cm.
If Song Joong Ki is actually 171 cm, that means the actor’s actual height is shorter than his listed one by 7cm.
Fake height controversy debunked thanks to dating news
After photos of Song Joong Ki and his girlfriend were published, however, netizens seem to have changed their mind. In particular, he is taller than her, while Katy Louise Saunders’ height is reportedly 171 cm.
In all of the photos, the girlfriend never wears heels, so judging by the height gap, Song Joong Ki’s height should fall around the range of 175 cm – 176 cm. If this is true, then the actor is only 2-3 cm shorter than his profile, instead of 10 cm shorter like in the rumors.
Of course, this deduction is only correct if Katy Louise Saunders is truly Song Joong Ki’s girlfriend and 171 cm is truly her height. At the same time, it is impossible to tell if any of them use shoe insoles to look taller.
