B.A.P’s Zelo receives attention for his impressive growth spurt

B.A.P‘s Zelo is being called the group’s “giant baby” with his tall height of 184 cm (~6 ft.).

Zelo shared on his Twitter on the 13th, “I measured my height. 184…hehe,” showing off his impressive growth spurt. Fellow member Youngjae then tweeted back, “Don’t do this… ㅠ You have to think of your hyungs too.”

17-year-old (Korean age) Zelo’s height is stated on his profile as 182 cm, but in a recent interview held in Japan, Zelo revealed his height at the time was 183 cm. He said, “I want to stop growing. But the hospital told me that my growth spurt is still going on.”

Fans commented, “184 cm is so tall compared to me”, “He’s cute and tall”, and “I still like you Youngjae”.

In related news, Zelo made headlines for making his fans swoon with his cute charms at the ‘Hope Concert for Multicultural Families’.

A teenage boy undergoing a growth spurt. Shocker of the century.

During their Warrior days, I always thought he was the tiniest because of his face. Then I saw group pictures and he was ridiculously tall... I think he can hit 190.
xredada 15th-Nov-2012 04:34 pm (UTC)
Omg I don't follow bap but to me he looks (from his face) as though he would be a shorty. I need to find some evidence of this 184cm.

This one's funny AND educational(?) lol


If you don't feel like watching, skip to 3:00. From 3:00 to 3:04, its either proof of his height or TS has really low lights/ceilings. (Don't mind Jongup, he's on the short end of BAP anyway. For reference, his profile says he's 176cm.)
avieyal 15th-Nov-2012 05:47 pm (UTC)
I noticed in the warrior days he kept his head at a low angle, so he was mostly "looking up" with his eyes, especially around Bbang, probably because of the age gap?

Or maybe I'm just making this up because that's what I want to see lol

Its likely he won't stop growing til 20 or so, so yeah, 190 is plausible. Probably more if he gets more sleep..

so who's currently the tallest male idol in kpop? was it someone from x-5?
921227 15th-Nov-2012 07:23 pm (UTC)
Most likely Jungshin from CN Blue, he's reportedly around 187cm. Exo M's Kris is basically that same height as well.
in_noctem 16th-Nov-2012 01:46 am (UTC)
I think so. Kyumin from Led Apple is also really tall, 188cm I think? And he's still growing.
phantomyume 16th-Nov-2012 08:50 pm (UTC)
X-5's maknae is 188cm tall officially, but he's grown since so I'd assume he's little over 190 by now. He was always taller than Zin and Zin was officially 189. They're extremely, crazily tall though :/

Apeace has a few 190cm members
asnindie 15th-Nov-2012 06:49 pm (UTC)
I bet he gives good piggy back rides.
charlotterhys 15th-Nov-2012 07:12 pm (UTC)
Unless Himchan is actually 176cm or something, Zelo has to be taller than that. O.o Just watch any of the recent Hajima performances. Boy is huge.
gray_fairy 15th-Nov-2012 07:36 pm (UTC)
Men usually grow until 18-21, so I think he could hit 190. That's huge, tbh. 185 is a perfect height imo.
staaan 15th-Nov-2012 08:12 pm (UTC)
not fair :/ i stopped growing at 15. i'm 170cm so i guess i can't complain, but i'd love to be ~175cm.

raviolikenshin 16th-Nov-2012 09:32 am (UTC)
he is around 72.4 inches tall, or six feet exactly on the dot. (6.033 feet)
sisterjune 16th-Nov-2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
According to my chart he's just shy of 6'1 which would be 185 cm. But it can be hard to exact approximations. I dont usually bother checking charts anymore cause I've been in non american fandoms and fashion so long that I just ended up teaching myself metric for heights, weight, body measurements etc lol. So I can ballpark it usually and yeah 6-6'1 is where Zelo is right now. But since most of BAP is short by western standards he looks even bigger lol.
___varying 15th-Nov-2012 09:41 pm (UTC)
Oh AKP; lol Youngjae. xD None of them are short, seriously. Even though they rag on Jongup about his height.
supplanter 16th-Nov-2012 06:20 am (UTC)
Seriously, they're all within 3-4in of each other and Zelo is 6ft (I feel like they definitely can't be lying about Zelo's height?) I don't think they're lying about anyone's heights, really, the others don't look short, and 5'9"ish is perfectly respectable for an asian dude.

(I think they only tease JU because he's the second youngest yet Zelo is so tall... and he doesn't get mad about anythingit.)
ruddens 15th-Nov-2012 10:28 pm (UTC)
"i still like you youngjae" is the best comment
supplanter 16th-Nov-2012 06:21 am (UTC)
I liked manager Kang's tweet to Zelo. XD;;

"Korean age"!???? Umm wtf is that supposed to mean?
strawberry_efeu 17th-Nov-2012 03:23 am (UTC)
They count age differently than the rest of the world. They say a baby is already 1 y/o when it's born, and you become another year older at the beginning of the year, not on your birthday. So, a person can be up to two years older in their Korean age than in their international age. Zelo's international age is 16, so there's only a difference of one year since his birthday already passed this year. idk why akp was using Zelo's Korean age in the first place though.
