South Korean Netflix series Squid Game is the hottest show to binge-watch right now, and for a good reason.
The show revolves around a ragtag group of cash-strapped individuals, who participate in a series of deadly childhood games to win a huge cash prize, and well, there’s basically a new twist every episode.
The show stars established actors Lee Jung Jae and Park Hae Soo, as well as new faces like Jung Ho Yeon.
The 27-year-old is no stranger to showbiz, having got her start as a model at the age of 16. However, Squid Game is her first acting role.
In the drama, Ho Yeon stars as Player 067 aka North Korean defector Kang Sae Byeok. And it’s safe to say that the role has pretty much catapulted her to international fame.
According to social media statistics website Socialblade, the model-actress now has 7.2mil followers on Instagram, having gained a whopping 5.3mil followers since the show was released on Netflix on September 17.
Ho Yeon’s Instagram game is super strong, with her feed consisting of her modelling shoots, bare-faced selfies and OOTDs.
