Korean Netizens notice that Arashi is short

A recent picture of Tohoshinki's Changmin with Japanese idols has gathered much attention. The picture, taken at Kouhaku Uta Gassen, was posted on an online community website on January 1 and shows the difference in the heights between Changmin and the Japanese idol group, Arashi.

The most obvious difference is between Changmin and Arashi’s member Ninomiya Kazunari. According to the profile information of both idols, the difference between the two men is supposedly 17cm (Changmin’s height is 185cm, while Ninomiya’s height is 168cm.)

Netizens who had seen this interesting photo left comments like, “Whenever our (Korean) idols go to Japan, they turn into giants,” “Superior Changmin” and “I feel content while looking at this photo."

I can't believe they just realized that. SMH at the netizens comments. How does being tall make you superior?

Love both groups though!! <33

Well when you compare one of Arashi's shortest to freaking Changmin, what do you expect. I must say I had a good laugh at this.

why does height matter? i love arashi, and from a couple songs that i've heard, tohoshinki is really talented. :)

if kpop fans and jpop argue, should'nt the argument be about talent and not who's taller? i'm just sayin'. it's not meant to insult anyone.

this is a stupid article. I love my giants and Nino is goddamn adorable! xD

but man, pressed Arashi fans are pressed.

I have the same height as Ohno Satoshi and I think that's a benefit for me. I'll be easier to kiss him, right? xDDD

This is because Uncle Johnny Kitagawa starves and overworks his Jr's in hopes of making them look 16 forever. XD

What a random thing to notice xD
Kind of interesting to see how different the standards are for things like height depending on the country.

I'm really short though, so regardless of the difference between their heights, they're both really tall to me xP

yep, they are taller... so now what?
I think it's well-known that in general Koreans are taller than Japanese so I don't get the point of this article. lol
it's not like height says anything about the success anyway.

I like my chibi old Arashi members the way they are ♥
(and don't get me wrong. i actually like THSK too... used to be their stan a few years ago XD)

Hm...Hasn't it always been this case ?
Lol, it sure took them a pretty long time to realize this fact ? :)

They still make more money than the Koreans did lol
peachie_ego 3rd-Jan-2012 05:10 am (UTC)

tiffa666 3rd-Jan-2012 04:32 am (UTC)

i think it's OK with their short body, so they're always cute and always look younger than #oopss!!
matsuyaney 3rd-Jan-2012 04:37 am (UTC)
i don't care about the height issues~ i love both groups so im not affected at all~
i like Arashi being shorties and I like Tohoshinki being giants. LOL
