When BTS debuted, Jungkook was a fifteen-year-old rookie ready to make his mark on the world. He grew up in front of our eyes, both emotionally and physically. These photos show how his height (and his members’) have changed.
RM is the tallest member of BTS at 181 cm (5’11”) and Jungkook is the 4th tallest at 178 cm (5’10”).
Back in 2013, Jungkook looked younger and smoler next to role model RM because, well, he was.
Jungkook is still shorter than RM, but both these stars have become broader and more muscular since their debut.
In their rookie days, Jungkook and V were close in height, just like they are today.
In 2020, V is 179 cm (5’10.5″), just a centimeter taller than Jungkook.
Jin loves to brag about “raising up” Jungkook, who was very much a kid when they were trainees.
Nowadays, Jin is the third-tallest BTS member at 178.3 cm (5’10.2″), making him 0.3 cm taller than the Golden Maknae.
There was a time when J-Hope was a bit taller than Jungkook, but now it’s reversed.
J-Hope is a centimeter shorter than Jungkook, standing at 177 cm (5’10”).
Suga still remembers the days when Jungkook was shorter than him, way back when they joined Big Hit Entertainment.
Now, at 174 cm (5’8.5″), Jungkook is a few centimeters taller than his hyung.
In BTS’s early days, Jungkook loved to make fun of Jimin’s “short” height, but in 2012 and at least part of 2013, there wasn’t a huge difference. The gap became much more noticeable by 2014.
This year, Jimin experienced a tiny growth spurt, bringing him to 174 cm (5’8.5″), so who knows? Maybe he’ll catch up!
