A Tall Korean Man Visits Netherlands

Korean YouTuber 아픈 니가 청춘 is 193 centimeters tall, or 6' 4". All his life, he's been the odd man out, with people staring at him and asking if he plays basketball. In this video, he goes to Netherlands, where the average man's height is the tallest on earth, just over six feet. Suddenly, for the first time in his life, he is surrounded by men taller than he is. Many are two meters tall, which is 6' 6". He also discovers what normal accommodations for tall people are like. For example, he doesn't have to bend over to use a sink, and he can see his face in a bathroom mirror. He can stand up straight on a bus! For contrast, he talks to an average-sized Korean women who is also visiting Netherlands, and how she struggles with a world built for tall people. Those of us who are fairly average don't realize how much difference that makes. (via reddit)
