“Squid Game” Jung Ho-yeon was recently in trouble because of an Instagram post.
On March 9th, Jung Ho-yeon uploaded a photo of her stepping on a sign on the floor that marks number 1 on her Instagram without leaving any special comment in the caption.
The post seems to mean Jung Ho-yeon’s first stage at the Women’s collection fashion show held at the Orsay Museum in Paris, France at 10:30 p.m on March 7th (Korean Standard Time). However, some Korean netizens interpreted the actress’s post as a supportive message for a specific presidential candidate because it was published exactly on the day of the 20th presidential election and criticized her.
Jung Ho-yeon’s post was spread on various online communities, such as clien, fmkorea, etc., and drew divided responses from Internet users. Some said, “You should be careful on days like this”, “You can’t post these things on the election day”, etc. Meanwhile, others commented, “She posted it out of joy. Please don’t overinterpret it”, “Don’t take everything politically”. Acknowledging the controversy, Jung Ho-yeon deleted her Instagram post.
Meanwhile, thanks to her performance in “Squid Game”, Jung Ho-yeon won the Best Actress for TV/ Drama Series at the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards, which was held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Los Angeles on the morning of February 27th (local time).
