Jimin, also known as Park Ji-min, is a famous South Korean dancer and singer, and has gained international fame and popularity as a result of his talents. He is a member of BTS, and a lot of fans are very curious about how tall he is, especially compared with his fellow band members.
Jimin is one of the shortest members of BTS, and stands at around 5 foot 9 inches (1.75 meters) tall. That’s not short, but does mean that next to the other members, he can look small, especially as he is also very slim. He was at one point the shortest member of the group.
We’re going to check out more about Jimin’s height, age, and weight, so you know everything you want to know about this talented singer!
How Tall Is Jimin?
According to ARMY, Jimin is 5 foot 9 inches, which is about the average height for a South Korean man, and slightly taller than the average height for an American man – which is 5 foot 8 inches (1.73 meters).
That means that Jimin isn’t short by the national standards, but a lot of people think of him as short, partly because most of the other members of the band are taller than he is. Let’s check out how that comparison works next.
Is Jimin The Shortest Member Of BTS?
Some people say that Jimin is the shortest person in BTS, but this isn’t the case; he’s actually tied for the shortest. Both Suga and Jimin are 5 foot 9 inches tall, which means they’re 1 to 2 inches shorter than the other members of the group.
Originally, Jimin was listed as shorter than Suga by about 0.4 cm, but between 2019 and 2020, he gained that 0.4 cm, and made an excited tweet about it.
The tallest person in BTS is RM, who is 5 foot 11 inches (1.80 meters). That’s only a couple of inches taller than Jimin and Suga, which tells us that overall, there isn’t a lot of height variation in the band – which you’ll see if you look at them in pictures together.
The other band members, perhaps surprisingly, are all about the same height! Jin, J-Hope, V, and Jungkook are all close to 5 foot 10 inches (1.78 meters). If you’re interested in the intricacies, Jin is the tallest of these 4, with an extra ½ inch of height over the others. V is about the same, while J-Hope is closer to a true 5 foot 10, as is Jungkook.
That means that these 4 are approximately 1 inch to 1.5 inches taller than Jimin. That’s not a lot, but it is visible in some pictures – although in others, they look very close in height, since this depends on angles, footwear, and other factors.
How Old Is Jimin?
Jimin is 27 years old, and was born in 1995. He made his debut with BTS as a vocalist in 2013, when he was about 18 years old. He released 3 solo songs, called “Lie,” “Serendipity,” and “Filter,” and they are very diverse pieces, but all enjoyed popularity.
“Lie” and “Serendipity” both did well, and by 2018, they had upward of 50 million streams on Spotify. In 2019, his music video of “Serendipity” surpassed 100 million views on YouTube. He was the first BTS member to achieve this.
“Filter” also brought him success. It earned him an entry on the Billboard Hot 100, and gave him his first number one on the World Digital Song Sales chart. It did immensely well, and in 2020, it became the longest-charting Korean song.
He has done some solo work as well as work with his bandmate Jungkook. Together, they produced a cover of Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe.” They also created a cover of Charlie Puth’s “We Don’t Talk Anymore” in 2017. This enjoyed enormous success, and was praised by various outlets, including Teen Vogue and Elite Daily.
Jimin has appeared in variety shows, including Please Take Care of My Refrigerator and Hello Counselor. At the 2016 KBS Song Festival, he appeared in a dance duet with Taemin.
He has continued to produce solo music that has enjoyed widespread popularity, including “Christmas Love” and “With You.” His solo album Face was released in March 2023, and it has already set some records and debuted as the number one in Japan and South Korea, as well as number two in the US.
His single “Like Crazy” debuted at number one on the Hot 100, which made him the first South Korean solo artist to hit the top of the charts.
He has been described as having a sweet, delicate voice, and he is praised for his incredible dance moves too. He is a self-described perfectionist, and has said that he has a strong need to get things right on stage, otherwise he feels stressed.
How Much Does Jimin Weigh?
Jimin is said to be around 134 lb (61 kg), which means he’s one of the lightest members in BTS – unsurprising since he’s also one of the smallest. Suga is a little lighter than him, weighing about 130 lb (59 kg), but they are very close.
Interestingly, all of the band members are under 160 lb. RM, the tallest, weighs about 148 lb (67 kg), while Jin weighs around 139 lb (63 kg). J-Hope is about 143 lb (65 kg), and Jungkook is the heaviest, at 154 lb (70 kg).
V is around 141 lb (64 kg), although some sources say he’s lighter, around 137 lb (62 kg). As you can see, all the band members are very light, and that includes Jimin. A lot of people are surprised by how similar their heights and weights are.
Jimin is one of the shortest members of BTS, although he’s now tied for shortest with Suga, rather than being actually the shortest. He has done extremely well in the world of music, with international success, and he’s considered a talented singer and dancer by fans and critics across the globe.
