Sometimes it can be hard to make out how tall someone is on television and in photos. Although they look petite on screen, some female celebrities boast unexpectedly impressive heights.

Here are 19 female stars who are much taller than what you might have expected:

1. Lee Na Young

Lee Na Young has such good body proportions that her height doesn’t stand out. But having debuted as a model, Lee Na Young is actually 5 feet and 8 inches (172cm) tall.

2. Han Hyo Joo

Han Hyo Joo’s small face overshadows her tallness. While many people expect her to be around 5 feet and 5 inches, her height is in fact 5 feet and 8 inches (172cm).

3. Choi Ji Woo

Choi Ji Woo, who recently got married, is also taller than what many people think. She is 5 feet and 8 inches (173cm) tall.

4. Lee Yeon Hee

It may be due to her roles in the dramas, but Lee Yeon Hee is rarely listed as a tall female celebrity. But Lee Yeon Hee is 5 feet and 9 inches (174cm) tall, tall enough to stand out among many crowds.

5. Jun Ji Hyun

Jun Ji Hyun is pretty well known for being tall, but she’s said to be much taller when seen in person. She is 5 feet and 8 inches (173cm) tall, and looks tall even when wearing flats.

6. Sulli

Just like her nickname “Giant Baby” suggests, Sulli is 5 feet and 7 inches (170cm) tall.

7. Shin Hye Sun

Having gained huge popularity after starring in “My Golden Life,” Shin Hye Sun is like a model in person. 5 feet and 8 inches (172cm) tall, a long padded coat that usually comes to people’s knees reportedly stops short at Shin Hye Sun’s thighs.

8. Kim Sun Ah

Kim Sun Ah recently starred in the romantic drama “Should We Kiss First.” The popular actress’s height is 5 feet and 8 inches (172cm).

15. Song Ji Hyo

Im Soo Jung has an adorable image that makes people think she’s shorter than she actually is, which is 5 feet and 5 inches (167cm).

17. EXID’s Solji

Solji, well-known for her great singing, has a round, cute face that leads many to simply assume she’ll be short. However, she’s the tallest in EXID with an impressive height of 5 feet and 8 inches (173cm).

18. Kim Go Eun

Kim Go Eun perfectly pulled off the role of a high school girl in “Goblin.” You might have thought that she’s relatively small as she stood between Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook, but keep in mind that they’re both over 5 feet and 10 inches tall.
