Jung Ho-yeon is still proving her unwavering popularity with her outstanding global moves in the syndrome of Netflix’s series “Squid Game” (written and directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk), which ranked No.1 in 83 countries and became the most popular film in Netflix’s history. After her acting debut, she appeared on NBC’s talk show “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and was selected as a global ambassador for luxury brand Louis Vuitton. However, Jung Ho-yeon‘s global moves did not stop there. Jung Ho-yeon was nominated at the SAG Awards for her acting debut and is continuing her unprecedented steps around the world.
Next to Jung Ho-yeon‘s name, there are always modifiers “first”, “best” and “maximum”.
