The AsiaN Editor
Chinese men are shorter than their South Korean and Japanese counterparts, according to recent data. The average height for a Chinese male is 1.70 meters, while South Korea is 1.74 meters and Japan 1.71 meters. Younger men in China, aged from 7 to 17, are also 2.52 centimeters shorter than their Japanese counterparts. Experts say that the common problem is a lack of proper physical education programs in many schools.
