Let's meet the HanCinema nominees for best actress of 2017:

Kim Ha-neul for "Misbehavior" - For a gritty, heartfelt performance that dug deeply into the psyche of a woman who feels inferior and who lashes out in anger and jealousy.

Seo Ye-ji for "Another Way" - For portraying desolation with realism and respect, and invoking endless sadness at the plight of a woman who is trapped by her situation and her mental anguish.

Kim Tae-ri for "Moon Young" - For her ability to disappear as thoroughly as her character as well as the slow buildup of her re-entry into the world.

Choi Hee-seo for "Anarchist from Colony" - For capturing the film's unusual essence to perfection, while brightening the whole scene with her smile.

Kim Ok-vin for "The Villainess" - For acting like a caricature in the action scenes and a sensitive woman in the dramatic ones.

Yum Jung-ah for "The Mimic" - For embodying a woman on the brink of a nervous breakdown, who tries to replace her lost son with a newfound girl in an obsessive act that worsens her situation.

Chun Woo-hee for "One Day" - For portraying, adorably, a girl who appears happy, but is tormented inside.

Shin Eun-soo for "Vanishing Time: A Boy Who Returned" - For highlighting her character's determination in favor of love and against the whole world, and for her outbreak during the end, which is a truly memorable sequence and the highlight of her effort.

Na Moon-hee for "I Can Speak" - For her striking, double-edged performance as a nagging grandmother and a woman on a mission to expose the hurts of the past.

Moon So-ri for "The Running Actress" - For playing a woman who is an actress living a non-stop life, fighting sexism, and telling her own tale in cinematic form and convincingly stating her points about women in show business.
