**NOTE: As you know, usually the K-pop companies adjust the idols’ official profiles, so it looks better. For example, Chaeyoung‘s official height is 163 cm (5’4″), but during Twice Private Life show, when she measured her height, it could be easily seen she’s actually 158.9 cm (5’3″). From there, the fans did the math and approximated their real height. So, we posted both versions.

**NOTE 2: Dahyun was also measured on Real Men and she was 158,6 cm, though she usually looks taller than Chaeyoung.

**NOTE 3: Tzuyu was confirmed to be 170 cm tall on her birthday V Live (14 June 2020). Momo was confirmed to be 163 cm on Twice Star Road (Episode 14)

**NOTE 4: The current listed positions have been published in the Official Kcon Book 2018, so the profile has been updated accordingly. We may have a different opinion on the positions but we are respecting the official published positions. When any updates regarding the positions will appear, we’ll update the profile again.
