Ravi of boy band VIXX explained how he grew up -- literally -- in a live broadcast held via Naver’s V app Sunday.

According to his official profile, the singer is 183 centimeters tall, about 9 cm taller than the average Korean male.

“I was 176 cm tall when I was in 7th grade. I was 167 cm when I was in sixth grade, but I suddenly grew 9 cm taller,” he said. “When I saw photos from my middle school years, I was the tallest (among my friends).”

He said, however, he didn’t grow much the following year. “I grew only 1 cm the next year because I played soccer a lot.”

“I wanted to be Chris Brown -- not just become like him but be him myself -- so I copied what he did a lot. I grew more doing so and reached the height as I am now,” he said. American singer-songwriter Chris Brown is 185 cm tall.

“Well, the height doesn’t really matter actually, but how it must hurt when (bandmate) Hyuk scolds me and hits me if I were shorter than now -- I can’t imagine,” he said.

Naver’s real-time broadcasting app V allows fans to interact with their favorite K-pop stars through live broadcasts. The app is available for Android and iOS. For more information, visit
