K-pop and Korean entertainment from Korean fans' perspective

Five body types of boy groups?

The average height & weight of Korean men in their 20's is 174cm & 73kg.


1) Skinny
Groups that can wear female clothes and weigh +50kg. 'Skinny' is a standardized expression to describe them. Usually, groups with fast and stylistic choreographies tend to have this body type.



2) Slim
They're not entirely skinny but slim. Their manliness is just between 'boy' and 'man'. This body type is suited for showy performances.



3) Tall
It applies to groups with an average height of +180cm. Just by standing, they fill up the stage. The unique aura of tall groups can't be copied by other groups.



4) Solid
It's not like they have excellent abs or huge muscles but they have enough arm muscles. Their concept is manliness and charisma.



5) Muscular & healthy
The ultimate healthiness. They're the ones that get called 'beast-dols'. Showing off their abs on a variety show is a must. This body type is suited for groups with extreme manliness and energy. This body type finally reaches the average weight of men.
