We are already loving http://dfvr.co/2BFUpWZ " target="_blank">our hottest leading men of 2017 list, and now it's time to reminisce about our girl crushes. K-drama leading ladies made recent productions even more special with their added beauty, strength, and ability to sway our emotions with each episode. Let's take a look at 13 of these lovely ladies now.

1. Kim Go Eun (Goblin)

Many Gong Yoo fans would love to be given the opportunity to go on a date with him. Kim's character Ji Eun Tak conjures him up and becomes his bride. K-drama magic for this 26-year-old star is incredible.


2. Lee Young Ae (Saimdang: Light's Diary)

It had been over a decade since K-drama fans had seen the brilliant Young Ae on television. After 14 long years, the 46-year-old icon returned in a dual role. I'd say she made up for lost time by playing a modern mom (Seo Ji Yoon) and a historical figure (Shin Saimdang) in one project.


3. Park Bo Young (Strong Woman Do Bong Soon)

The 27-year-old role model set all types of goals this past winter by playing the strongest woman in her country. Who didn't want her superpowers and the gorgeous guys who fell for her?


 4. Kim So Hyun (Ruler: Master of the Mask)

Her character Han Ga Eun had to undergo unfathomable hardships, but gaining the love of two hotties seemed to make things a little better. Kim So Hyun may only be 18, however, she knows how to land the picture perfect leading men.


5. Oh Yeon Seo (My Sassy Girl)

Royalty received a makeover when she portrayed Princess Hyemyeong this spring. The kingdom was turned upside down as soon as the 30-year-old actress put her hilarious spin on a person inspired by an historical figure.


6. Park Min Young (Queen for Seven Days)

The 31-year-old's acting skills were put to the test when she took on history to portray Shin Chae Kyung, who ascends to the throne as Queen Dangyeong. She impressed many with her royal performance. 


7. Lee Si Young (Lookout)

Playing a rebel fighting for justice was the perfect role for the 35-year-old actress and mom-to-be. Her character, Jo Soo Ji, instantly became everyone's role model. 


8. Kim Ji Won (Fight My Way)

Over a year after her role in the hit series Descendants of the Sun, the 25-year-old talent wowed us again as the strong and determined Choi Ae Ra. Her character was also a great role model we can all look up to. 


9. Ha Ji Won (Hospital Ship)

Many fell in love with Ha's portrayal of gifted surgeon Song Eun Jae. Her on-screen noona romance with co-star Kang Min Hyuk still makes some fans a little green with envy. The 38-year-old actress is on fire! 


10. Kim Jin Kyung (Andante)

The 20-year-old model-turned-actress is tugging at our heartstrings every week as she plays the ailing Kim Bom. Her amazing acting skills help viewers open their hearts to her broken on-screen character.


11. Jang Nara (Go Back Couple)

Jang's character, Ma Jin Joo, is given the opportunity of a lifetime when she gets to time travel to her college days. Who doesn't want the chance to redo things and have gorgeous people crush on you? Jang's already 36, and she's still scoring all the best roles.


12. Kang So Ra (Revolutionary Love)

Her portrayal of Baek Joon inspired all of us to work harder and go after our dreams. The 27-year-old actress transformed into the master of part-time jobs and positivity.


13. Chae Soo Bin (I'm Not a Robot)

The 23-year-old actress is taking on a dual role as Jo Ji Ah and humanoid robot Aji-3 in the hilarious new rom-com. She probably had more fun than any of the other leading ladies this year! Playing a robot is guaranteed to be hours of entertainment. 

Are there any other leading ladies you would add to this list?
