This dataset contains 2002 entries. Scroll for more content  


Findings #19-28 - In this last page of our 1,903-idol compilation report, we dwell into our idols' BMIs, blood types and countries of origin. You may also wish to re-visit the previous page, covering Findings #9-18 (Birthdays and Weights).


Part 5: Let's dwell a little into the health of our K-Pop idols. A little worrying..

We will use W.H.O. (World Health Organization) 's body mass index (BMI) classification as a yardstick. BMI is calculated as weight / height2 (kg/m2).





Most (91.2%) of the female K-Pop idols are underweight, of which 9.2% are considered severely underweight! 

There are literally no overweight female K-Pop idols. Only 8.8% are considered to be in the normal BMI category (based on a BMI value of 18.5 to 25 kg/m2). A staggering (!) 91.2% of our female K-Pop idols are underweight (BMI value less than 18.5), of which 8% are severely underweight (BMI of 15 to 16) and 1.2% are very severely underweight (BMI of 15 or less).




On the other hand, the better news is that 75% of male K-Pop idols are considered to be in the normal BMI category.


However still, 25% of male K-Pop idols are considered underweight (BMI value less than 18.5) and only 2 K-pop idols are considered slightly overweight (BMI of 25 to 30). Thus, the remaining 75% are considered to be in the normal BMI category.




The average BMI value of a male K-Pop idol is 19.4 (normal category).


The BMI values of male K-Pop idols range from 15.26 (severely underweight) to 28.41 (slightly overweight).




The average BMI value of a female K-Pop idol is 17.16 (underweight category).


The BMI values of female K-Pop idols range from 14.19 (VERY severely underweight) to 21.34 (normal).

Part 6: It's in their blood.



The most common blood type is A.


The most common blood type among K-Pop idols is blood type A (35%). When accounted for male and female idols separately, the percentage is similar: 35% for male idols and 34% for female idols.




The least common blood type is AB.


The least common blood type among K-Pop idols is blood type AB (12%), which is the same percentage for male and female idols when accounted separately.




Our 1,903 K-Pop idols' blood type distribution mirrors that of South Korea's 50 million population.


For our 1,903 K-Pop idols, 35% of the idols have blood type A, 27% for blood type O, 26% for blood type B and 12% for type AB.

For South Korea's 50 million population, 34% of the population have blood type A, 28% for blood type O, 27% for type B and 11% for type AB.

Part 7: Well, where do they hail from?



96% of our K-Pop idols are from South Korea.


While K-Pop has spread successfully to almost every corner of the world with a strong international fan base, K-Pop idols are predominantly South Koreans at about 96%.




Most of the international K-Pop idols are from Japan, China and USA.


2.1% of the K-Pop idols are from China, followed by 1.9% from Japan and 0.7% from USA. NCT and Varsity have quite a number of Chinese members at 7 and 5 respectively, while Treasure13/Magnum has a good number of Japanese members.




Where the remaining 1% are from


The remaining 1% of our K-Pop idols hail  from Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines and India.




Yes, that sums up our 28 bite-sized findings from breaking down the stats of 1,903 K-Pop idols for the year of 2020.
