Well, they are getting taller, due to a better diet. Personally, I'm still short....

The average height now for 20 yr olds in Japan (male) and Korea (male) is 5' 7" now.
In China it's shorter, but still growing...

Be happy, I'm 17 and am 5'5" as well....be very happy....although you will probably be tall, the average Caucasian woman in the US is like 5'5" or 5'6" at their peak height.

So am I....well I'm half-asian half-white....
You'll still probably be tall, I have a friend who's Japanese and she's 5'11". Sadly, I probably won't grow much taller, but you probably will.

Were Asians actually short in the first place? I mean, wasn't that just a huge stereotypical assumption? I'm glad that you realize that we can be tall, but...I feel slightly offended when you put the word "actually" in your reaction.

Says who, for a girl yeah for a guy no, especially when all your friends and school mates are all 5' 8" plus, with a handful of exceptions. As a short guy, I for one a) cause I look young have to deal with always getting the kids menu b) dealing with the DMV is a nightmare cause they don't take you seriously c) having to look up at everyone and d) having girls look down at by the girls cause they're all taller than you....

Yeah unfortunately. Being 5'5" and a guy isn't such a great thing, but when you look young, it's worse. C) Yeah well when everyone is taller, then it kinda looses something. D) no one said girls out here were smart, their suburban girls too involved in their cliques....
