Lots of Korean celebrities stand tall at 6 feet or more, which makes us wonder: How do they appear in the same frame with people who aren’t as tall as they are?
It turns out, they do what is pegged as “Korean Manner Legs,” which is stretching one’s legs sideways or standing with a wider stance than usual—just think of when you’re in the process of doing a split!
They do this in order to appear shorter for certain camera shots or to adjust for their makeup artists, stylists, interviewers, fellow actors, and even fans.
Here are some photos of your fave Korean stars doing the “Manner Legs”:
