Well, this scene is awkward, but still adorably cute. When the F4 of the new Meteor Garden 流星花園 was first announced, Dylan Wang, Darren Chen, Caesar Wu and Connor Leung were reported to have an average height of 185 cm (6 feet), which leaves a staggering height difference between then and leading lady Shen Yue who is known to be quite petite.
Shen Yue’s height ranges rom 155-160 cm on various online sources though it looks like the crew has devised a way to add a few inches since they have her standing on the same wooden stool in some behind-the-scenes shots where she’s acting opposite Darren Chen (plays Hua Ze Lei) and Caesar Wu (plays Ximen).
The cast seem to have no qualms making fun of themselves as they crack up over how Shen Yue manages to look taller than Dylan Wang (plays Dao Ming Si) after his legs were buried in the sand. For all the efforts to make Shen Yue appear taller, it’s amusing that her breakout role in A Love So Beautiful actually highlights her height difference with leading man Hu Yi Tian who stands at 188cm.
