Height doesn't matter

Q: In South Korea, parents are so certain that height is crucial to success that they are taking their children to growth clinics. Do certain physical attributes give people an advantage as they strive for success in the workplace? Are short people at a disadvantage in business or politics or other endeavors?

I cannot think of an occupation outside of sports -- or perhaps a circus act -- that would be
impacted by a person's height.

Personally, I think cleanliness and personal appearance contribute more to success than height. I wonder if Korean Airlines still requires flight attendants to be of a certain height and weight, etc., that all airlines adhered to decades ago??
