do you think he wears lifts rob? he manages to appear 5'9 range a lot
Editor Rob: I think at times he just is standing at his best posture. He's also a guy who doesn't exactly have a flat hairstyle, so has volume to add to it.

Andrea the reason yeun looked 5'7 in the beginning of the walking dead was because he was wearing red converse and andrew lincoln was wearing cowboy boots which essentially put steven yeun at an inch disadvantage.
datguy said on 16/Mar/16
130 is believable i pretty much have the same build as him and I'm 130 lbs. what would you say his weight is rob?
Editor Rob: 150-60 range maybe

Steven is a legit 5'8". Met him at Walker Stalker Con San Francisco and he was an inch taller than me and I am 5'7".

I get to meet him in a few weeks , i'll take a pic and get a better estimate.
cam said on 2/Nov/15
saw him in la last year and im 5'9 (on a generous day) and i agree that he is closer to 5'7. maybe 5'8 on a very generous day
the shredder said on 15/Oct/15
He sure did pass for 5 ft 9 to me , very minimum he appeared was 5'8.5 , I did not see his waist down though but he was standing.
Ken said on 10/Oct/15
Here he is with hulk hogan who is 6'3. Can't see footwear but I think Yeun can pass as 5'9 or 5'8.5
The shredder said on 6/Jul/15
He looks strong 5'8 there , I thought he was 5'7 range but in person he looks no shorter than 5'8.5 , 5'9

Looks somewhere in the 5'7 range. I think 5'8 is pushing it.
the shredder said on 8/Mar/15
5 9 is what I saw , but could not see his shoes
Josh said on 5/Mar/15
Maybe 5'8.5-.75. He's definitely close to 5'9. Saw him on Conan O'Brien when they went to a spa together and he looked like a weak 5'9.
174cm? said on 13/Feb/15
Hm, this one is a bit tricky, he can look 5'9" at times, on recent Conan sketch, both (probably) bare feet at a korean spa, he wasn't necessarily "dwarfed" by Conan O'Brien. Have you considered that he might be a possible 174 cm? 5'8.5" ??
[Editor Rob: that's what big Shredder thought he could look in person, I am hoping he comes to the UK so I could get him.]
Adamz said on 15/Dec/14
Wtd he was 172cm here b4??
the shredder said on 12/Nov/14
I did not see his footwear to be fair , but believe me I saw 5 '9 and this was not a case where I took a under 5'8 guy as 5 '9 , I really saw him at 5 '9 as he looked taller next to me than Rooker did and was closer to Reedus.
Andrea said on 12/Nov/14
I doubt he found the time to do that with all those zombies around... Anyway, yeah, you should meet him and then maybe change him... I guess he'll keep his 5'8 listing, for now, and be in the same boat of guys like Glenn or Giancarlo Esposito, waiting for their destiny :)
[Editor Rob: I don't know how many more WD names the organiser will get. Remember I mentioned they didn't want to pay Rooker (who was in London at the time and came along as an attendee) the fee, I won't get my hopes up for many others!]
Andrea said on 12/Nov/14
With Vincent, it's not a surprise at all... I said he wasn't a big 6'4 guy but you obviously didn't listen to me xD Steven, i repeat, he can look easily 5'8 (or a bit over) but the fact he used to look barely over 5'7 at times, at the beginning of TWD, puts a red flag next to his listing... I doubt he's grown, so i think he could really have helped himself in a way, if you know what i mean...
[Editor Rob: maybe he done grow taller stretches...]
Andrea said on 11/Nov/14
Well, next to a guy like Jon Bernthal, he can really look not over 5'7.5 but then i do agree he can look at least 5'8 other times... I mean, i wouldn't be surprised at all if he measured more 5'7-5'7.5 barefoot!!!
[Editor Rob: shame a few of these guys like Steven never done a uk one, it would be interesting to see what he really looked up close, sometimes you can get a surprise, maybe one guy is a cm taller or shorter than you really thought they were.

for instance vincent ward you just seen, that guy really isn't 6ft 4 barefoot...bernthal I think pretty much could look what I thought, 5ft 11.]
Andrea said on 8/Nov/14
Rob, why did you decide to give him the full 5'8 mark? He certainly can look it (and sometimes even over 5'8) but he didn't look that mark at the beginning of The Walking Dead! I think it's quite likely he's decided to boost his height last few years and maybe started to wear some lifts...
[Editor Rob: a few months ago, I think he can pass for it generally, I'm not sure his shoes really look suspicious though.]
the shredder said on 7/Nov/14
I stand by the 5'9 range I saw.

Rob, please take a look at that picture and tell me, what´s wrong?
Yeah, Rob Feinstein is leaning a bit with Steve Yeun.
But what need Yeun to wear here? Elavator Shoes?

[Editor Rob: I wouldn't think there's anything wrong...He appears a couple inches taller than Steven, but I don't know if they have same or different posture and with Mads he looks (there's a 3 degree tilt) a bit shorter than him.]
the shredder said on 12/Aug/14
I saw him the same height or close as norman Reedus ,
KLM said on 7/Aug/14
I was friends with him in college so have stood next to him when he was barefoot many times. He is 5'9. On a side note, he is a great guy; very kind and funny.
the shredder said on 17/Jul/14
I really don't know what he is barefoot but the Steven Yeun I saw was not as short as 5'7.75.
the shredder said on 16/Apr/14
Rob , I met Sean Clark , I thought Him and Yeun looked the same height. Slightly shorter than reedus.
Andrea said on 14/Apr/14
He's gotta be Tom Cruise's son...
Same height, same tricks ;)
the shredder said on 14/Apr/14
Believe me , the version I saw of him was more than 5'7.75. Over 5'8. He is pulling some trick.
the shredder said on 13/Apr/14
rob , is it possibe he had bigger shoes and was really pulling off 5'8.5 with me?
[Editor Rob: yes it is possible, maybe with good posture he could look over 5ft 8...I really would be surprised if he was 174cm though!]
the shredder said on 7/Apr/14
Not saying he is 5'9 but he sure looked it to me , but take note " I did not see his feet". He could be 5'8 and was tip toeing or in big shoes. I actually think in pics he looks 5'7.5 ish , but in person 5'9 is what he faked me out with , I mean he looked taller than Rooker.
MD said on 7/Apr/14
Whatever he looks, it's pretty clear he's not 5'9" or even near 5'9".
Kendall said on 6/Apr/14
Barely 5'7
the shredder said on 5/Apr/14
Mamun does not mind if I post his pics , but here steve is leaning in and Mamun said he looked 5'9 when standing correct.

MD said on 4/Apr/14
Is that his stuntman or something?
[Editor Rob: just a bit of perspective knocking a few inches off.]
the shredder said on 3/Apr/14
Has to be doing something , even Mamun saw him taller than himself and He was taller than Rooker in person lol
Lorne said on 3/Apr/14
Lol, what the hell? He looks tiny in that pic! This guy has been hanging out with Sly...
the shredder said on 3/Apr/14
LOL Rob , Funny because I think he looks 5'7 , I was expecting a 5'7 guy , no . I saw a 5'9 er , Taller than Rooker , Even Mamun saw the freak illusion of 5'9 .
the shredder said on 2/Apr/14
The funny thing is in Person he looked taller than Rooker and Closer to Norman. I really wanted to see his footwear and get a pic , but He charged 75 , He must have been on standing on something behind his table or tip toeing or in lifts , He was 5'9 at the shortest.
[Editor Rob: you saw his taller twin, here is Real Yeun ;)
aned said on 17/Mar/14
This is correct.173 cm
the shredder said on 8/Mar/14
Anddrew is not that hunched and is standing in front , but I agree Steven looks5'8 max there , but I saw 5'9 . He was the shocker of height , he very well could have been tip toe but could not see his shoes.

Notice Andrew's loose, almost hunched posture, and Steve literally craning to get every centimeter out of this shot. lol This current listing is the absolute top of the scale for Steve.
the shredder said on 3/Mar/14
Did not see his shoes at all , he was the tallest looking under 5'8 I saw.
Freddy said on 25/Feb/14
5'8....if he sometimes appears 5'9 then lift pads inside his shoes are at work, even regular sneakers have enough space for them
Jacky said on 14/Feb/14
5'9 Rob. 5'9. His posture isn't that good but met him at Comic-Con and I'm 5'8 on the nose. He was a bit taller than me but when he stretched out at one point, he was at least an inch taller if he were standing up straight. Shoes looked similar.
the shredder said on 13/Feb/14
Rob , I was talking to Mamun and even he saw him at 5'9 at his Comic Con. Something is fishy here?
[Editor Rob: is there a possibility he slips something into his shoes? I wouldn't rule it out. I think on the show he can look near 5ft 8 mostly]
the shredder said on 11/Feb/14
I mean taller than Rooker , he really was the shocker as far as height. Did not see his shoes but no way did he appear even as short as 5'8.5 , he looked a good 5'9 guy.
the shredder said on 9/Feb/14
not sure on his footwear but he looked sockingly 5'9 , he even looked shorter than ROOKER.
Fouad said on 22/Dec/13
he is no more than 5'7 maybe even 5'6
lolzm8 said on 6/Dec/13
yeah, i was thinking 130lb aswell (60kg)
Adamz said on 2/Oct/13
possibly 173cm??
Adamz said on 5/Jan/13
172cm fits.
Silent d said on 5/Dec/12
I thought andrew lincoln was tall. I guess he plays an imposing character. Some scenes steve is shorter than lauren cohan and sarah wayne callies. He could be 172cm but i think 170cm is more likely.
Johnnyfive said on 2/Dec/12
Looking at photos of The Walking Dead cast on the red carpet this height sounds about right. He does look around 2 inches shorter than Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus. He can look 5'7 at times on the show.

Lo sgozzatore said on 25/Nov/12
Yeah, he can look anything in the 5'7-5' range! But i still dont know how he looked 2inches+ shorter than michael rooker. Maybe rooker wears lifts, rob?
