Tall women have an elegance and grace of their own that is truly unbeatable. They exude power and command unlike any other and we can't help but gush over them.  In South Korea, a woman over 170 cm is considered the standard for being tall. When these tall women are also our favourite K-Drama actresses, the swoon quotient just keeps going higher and higher. They're the very definition of "girl crush" or more simply, just plain old crushes that you know are so unattainable that you can only admire them from afar.

The confidence in their model-like strut, the way they carry themselves, the way they look amazing in whatever they wear and even better when they're wearing heels, it is hard not to have heart-eyes over these actresses. Action to romance, thrillers to comedies, they can do it all!

Here are 7 of the tallest Korean actresses that we cannot help but admire.
