For genetic reasons there are differences between men and women when taking into account different values of the human body such as height, so to analyze whether the height of a person is around the average, you must take into account the racial factors or origin (country of origin, in this case North Korea) and the gender:

  • Male: 172 cm
  • Female: 159 cm

If a person from North Korea is not 165.5 cm tall, is he/she short?

Not necessarily, as 165.5 centimeters is an average height of people from North Korea. In order to have a correct assessment of whether a height is suitable for a person, family history and some medical variables such as possible diseases, for example, must be taken into account.

Therefore, a person from 165.5 cannot be defined as tall or short by reaching a body size above or below 165.5, this assessment should be made by a medical professional.
