At 192 cm (6’3″), SF9‘s Rowoon has a tendency to stand out no matter where he goes which comes with its ups and downs and because of this, Rowoon came up with a creative way to hide his height while on vacation with his family.

 

During an episode of Happy Together 4, Rowoon talked about the trip his family had taken to Jeju Island at the very beginning of the year. This particular trip was to get in some rest and relaxation time together as a family after Rowoon’s busy schedule.

While talking about the trip, Yoo Jae Suk curiously asked whether or not a lot of people had recognized him. After Rowoon revealed that he often gets recognized even when he wears a mask, Yoo Jae Suk pointed out that perhaps his height was one of the biggest factors in catching everyone’s attention.
