Squid Game Star, Jung Ho-Yeon's Hot Debut Makes Her The Most Followed South Korean Actress!
Jung Ho-Yeon - Modeling Career
After her success on Top Model, Jung’s life changed. All of a sudden she became busy with booking for many jobs, appearing in several top fashion magazines, and hitting the runway for labels such as Louis Vuitton and in 2016 she debuted on the international runways. At this early point in her career, the actress had even dyed her hair red which ended up becoming her signature look. Her career gained such momentum that in 2015 Vogue had dubbed her as Korea’s Next Top Model. At the time the publication had dubbed her as the next Korean girl to “make a splash stateside”, which given the fact that she spent a long time outside of her native country working on her modeling career, could be argued that it came true.

What was the script in question? Squid Game. But it wasn’t all easy so read on to find out what the star had struggled with.
