While Netflix’s ‘Squid Game’ is gaining popularity around the world, rookie actress Jung Ho-yeon is also attracting attention.
Jung Ho-yeon played the role of ‘Kang Sae-Byeok’ from North Korea in ‘Squid Game’. She is a person who has lived a rough life as a pickpocket in a desperate situation where she needs a lot of money for her brother and mother. She showed a strong presence among veteran actors such as Lee Jung-jae and Park Hae-soo by fighting with anger-filled eyes and hand-to-hand combat.
Since the release of ‘Squid Game’, Jung Ho-yeon’s SNS followers surged more than 5 times compared to before, surpassing 2.3 million followers, and even YouTube videos are running backwards.
In particular, on the YouTube video operated by Sara Entertainment, Jung Ho-yeon’s agency, comments such as “I came all the way here by the squid game” and “I got something from watching the squid game, Jeong Ho-yeon” are continuing.
Jeong Ho-yeon, a former model, has been in a public relationship with actor Lee Dong-hwi 9 years older than him for 6 years.
Meanwhile, ‘Squid Game’ is the first Korean drama on Netflix in the United States to top the charts in 14 countries including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, UAE and Kuwait, creating a syndrome with unprecedented results.
