This 26-year-old Korean model turned actress, Lee Sung Kyung, is bagging everyone's hearts lately. With her gorgeous face and likable personality, how can we not notice her? But she's not just a pretty face and that's why we love her so much! Here are 9 reasons why we can't stop fangirling over this world's Chubs. She's just simply #GOALS!

  1. She can act as bida and kontrabida.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo may be Lee Sung Kyung's first starring role. But we've seen this pretty face in a ton of dramas where she mostly acted as a kontrabida, like Cheese in the Trap, It's Okay That's Love, Doctors, and Queen's Flower. She also starred in music videos with different artists like Akdong Musician, Winner's Kang Seung-yoon, and Urban Zakapa. This just proves how good an actress she is!

  1. She's playful.

She's a Kim Bok Joo in real life! With her busy schedule, this girl still continues being the adorable girl that she is—playing around the set, making fun of her co-artists, and just simply having fun. We just can't help but wish we were friends with her!

  1. She can model, too!

She's not only an actress, but also a superb model! Her face is all over Korean fashion magazines, and she was part of the 2015 and 2016 S/S Seoul Fashion Week. In addition, she has a ton of endorsements like Laneige, Moonshot and Adidas.

  1. She can bust a move.

Gosh, is there anything she can't do? Watch her dance in the Adidas Originals commercial and fangirl with us!

  1. She can host.

Lee Sung Kyung co-hosted with Shin Dong Yup at the 2015 MBC Drama Awards. This girl is seriously everywhere!

  1. She can sing and rap.

An angelic face definitely comes with an angelic voice—and some mad rapping skills, too! We won't be surprised if one of these days, we see her performing with a girl group. With these many talents, she just fits in every field.

  1. She's one of the boys.

With her outgoing and friendly personality, it's no surprise that she gets along with the boys. Guys love being around her, including Lee Jong Suk who she has been friends with her for 10 years! In a recent interview, she admitted that she's more comfortable around guys.

"For some reason, I've always just been more comfortable around guy friends. I can be a little more free and less careful with guys. Conversation is a lot more comfortable and there's a back-and-forth quality that I think fits me better. On the flip side, since we're such close friends, they don't see me as a woman. I've had a lot of guy friends, but even in high school, I never had a real boyfriend." (via Soompi.com)

  1. She can play instruments, like piano and drums!

She is just so talented! ♥

  1. She's a Queen.


We declare it! We accept it! It's the truth! She's a Queen. #GOALS
