Lee Minho's & Kim Soohyun's Chinese fans argue online

Posted: 22 Jun 2014 04:00 AM PDT



It's natural for avid fans to want what's best for their idol. Some fight, at least online and not physically, if they see an inappropriate representation or description of their idol.

One example is the Chinese fans of the equally handsome and talented Korean actors Lee Minho, who is celebrating his 27th (international age) birthday today, and Kim Soohyun. Their fans had an online fight that rooted from a printed advertisement for a Chinese clothing brand. To be specific, they are arguing because Lee Minho and Kim Soohyun seemed to have same height and face size on the print.

Lee Minho's fans are pointing out why the two looked to have the same height when in fact Lee Minho (1.87 m or 6 ft 1 1⁄2 in) is taller than Kim Soohyun (1.80 m or 5 ft 11 in). Kim's fans are also asking why Lee Minho's face size is smaller than its actual and looked the same as Kim's face size.

For others, will it matter if Lee Minho and Kim Soohyun seem to have the same height and face size?
