K-Pop group’s most lovable idols are often their adorable maknaes, who everyone spoils and dotes on. While some maknaes look like total babies, some tower over the rest of their group, and shock fans with their mature visuals! Here are 10 K-Pop groups who have the tallest maknaes, but despite their staggering height, are still loved as the smol babies they are!
1. ITZY’s Yuna
ITZY debuted in 2019, and Yuna instantly became notable for her gorgeous visuals and towering height! The group’s visual maknae stands at a height of 170 cm (5 ft. 6 in.), which makes her the tallest in her group!
2. PENTAGON’s Wooseok
PENTAGON‘s Wooseok debuted as the group’s main rapper and maknae, and instantly became known among fans as the group’s giant maknae! Wooseok stands at a staggering height of 188.6 cm (6 ft. 2 in.) and especially towers over the group’s oldest (and shortest) member Jinho, who stands at the smol height of 168 cm (5 ft. 6 in.)!
3. NCT Dream’s Jisung
NCT Dream‘s Jisung is the maknae of the entirety of NCT, and when he debuted, he even looked like the smol tiny maknae. But as the years have gone by, he’s blossomed into a young man, and now holds the title of tallest in the group! Jisung stands at 180 cm (5 ft. 10 in), and absolutely towers over the rest of his members!
4. TWICE’s Tzuyu
TWICE‘s Tzuyu was introduced in SIXTEEN as a member with “perfect proportions”, and its all true! She debuted as the maknae and tallest member of TWICE, standing at 172 cm (5 ft. 8 in)! Fans often hilariously compare her height to same-age member Chaeyoung, who, as the shortest member in the group, stands at 160 cm (5 ft. 3 in). They find the difference in height quite adorable, and love the dynamics the two share despite of it!
5. BLACKPINK’s Lisa
BLACKPINK‘s Lisa may not be the tallest in her group, but she comes in at a close second! Standing at a tall 166.5 cm (5 ft. 5.35 in.), Lisa looks taller than she is because of her long arms and legs, and also due to her immense stage presence onstage!
6. CLC’s Eunbin
CLC‘s Eunbin was added to the group in 2016, and thereby became the group’s official new maknae! She stands at a height of 171 cm (5 ft. 7 in.), and towers over the rest of her members! The members themselves gave her the nickname of “giant maknae“, and is very fitting for Eunbin as the tallest member!
7. GOT7’s Yugyeom
GOT7‘s Yugyeom is the group’s adorable main dancer and maknae, but he’s also the group’s gigantic adorable maknae! Standing at the staggering height of 183 cm (6 ft. 0 in.), he completely towers over the rest of his members, but is still loved as the group’s cute maknae!
