She continued by explaining why she felt so insecure about it.

Before, people used to look at me and ask me how I’m so tall. So I would cower in a corner. But now, I’m just thankful.

I haven’t measured myself recently, but last time, I was around 172 centimeters (5 foot 6 inches).

Actress Bae Jong Ok, who appeared on the show with her, also expressed her shock and explained why she didn’t know Shin Hye Sun was so tall.

Shin Hye Sun has an adorable look. So when I first met her in person, I was surprised by how tall she actually was.

In response, Shin Hye Sun added a few other reasons why people didn’t expect her to be so tall.

Normally, the camera only films me from the waist up. I think it’s also because my face is round.
