Korean dramas are synonyms for handsome men, bubbly heroines, intense romance and intriguing screenplay. 2017 kickoff with a great pace for K-town with record-smashing hits like Goblin and Legend of the Blue Sea dominating the ratings. However, the high graph couldn't live up to the expectations. Eventually, the pace stumbled and until the end of 2017, K-town could produce only dramas with medium to average ratings. Amidst all the ups and down, the Korean filmdom never compromises on the number of hot-looking men. So here we take a look at some of the hottest K-drama lead from 2017.

Well, anything about 2017 is incomplete without the handsome Gong Yoo and his record-smashing drama Goblin. Fresh from the success of Train to Busan, Yoo instantly stole the hearts of fans with his amazing performance in this fantasy-romance. However, what stood out was his epic bromance with costar Lee Dong Wook. Be it the oversized coats (that became a fashion icon in Korea after the drama) or his amazing humour-laced dialogue delivery, Gong Yoo is the best and there is no doubt about it.
