From the 2004 Olympics announcer:
Kim Dong Moon 6' 0.5"
Ha Tae Kwan 6' 2"
They always looked about the same height to me, but I guess Kim's thinner frame makes him look taller.
Didn't know Peter Gade was 6'1", he's taller than KDM.
And Lee Choong Wei is only 5'8"?
He's shorter than Zhang Ning?

As for Korean players, this link gives you some of them:
Jung Jae-sung: 168cm
Im Bang-eun: 186cm
Kim Dong-moon: 184cm
Ha Tae-kwun: 187cm
Shon Seung-mo: 182cm
Park Sung-hwan: 186cm
Jeon Jun-beom: 187cm
Lee Jae-jin: 178cm
Hwang Ji-man: 175cm
Hwang Hye-youn: 169cm
Seo Yoon-hee: 162cm
Lee Kyung-won: 160cm
Lee Hyo-jung: 178cm
Ha Jung-eun: 173cm
Hwang Yumi: 165cm
Elsewhere, Lee Hyo-jung is listed as 180cm which makes her taller than her mixed partner. 18-year-old Kim Mun-hee is also 180cm.

Actually this link has a few European players such as...
Nathan Robertson: 188cm
Robert Blair: 185cm
but it is hard to believe some of them. They list Mia Audina as 161cm and Zhang Ning as 168cm or the same as Pi Hongyan! I think they meant "7" instead of "6" for Mia and Zhang.

Yes, the reason the MVP Cup data is wrong is that they mixed up Zhang Ning and Pi Hongyan. They have the two of them with not only the same height but also the same world ranking and even the same date of birth!
Maybe everything else is right but isn't Mia Audina taller than 161cm?
