Fans of Kpop idols under SM Entertainment are joking about an alternate universe where the shortest members become the tallest.
Recently, a photo of EXO Chanyeol next to Korean actor Jang Ki Young, in which the male idol looked unrealistically short, has gone viral across the net. The image, which is not at all edited, reminds fans of the alternate universe Kwangya, where Chanyeol may be actually that short.
First glance at the photo, many people felt perplexed at Chanyeol’s tiny frame, especially when the male idol is 6 foot tall (185cm). Therefore, he couldn’t have been much shorter than Jang Ki Young, who is 6’1 (187cm). Turns out, it’s just an optical illusion.
Squint at the photo and you’d be able to detect the odd detail: Chanyeol actually took off his shoes and was kneeling down. The simple trick was able to make a lot of fans giggle.
Another case where fans suddenly saw their short idols become gigantic is via Irene’s unique album photocard. In particular, the female idol took a picture of her shadow, which greatly lengthened her legs, making Irene look like she is 5’9 (180cm). This is a complete contrast to the real height of Red Velvet’s tiniest member, who stands at only 5’1 (158cm).
Red Velvet Wendy is 5’2 (159cm), just as tiny as her older groupmate Irene. However, the female idol would often edit her photo on Instagram to look like she’s actually 6’5 feet tall (200cm).
In contrast to the tiny Chanyeol is the gigantic EXO Baekhyun who stands at 6’2 (190cm). Previously, Baekhyung actually cracked fans up with a badly edited photo where his legs are surrealistically long. Unfortunately, this is not Kwangya, so Baekhyun’s actually only 5’7 (174cm).
