Netflix original thriller series “Squid Game” (오징어 게임) has become the hot topic these days since its release. The suspenseful series garnered attention not only for its mysterious plot but also with the lineup of famous actors as the main lead. In particular, many viewers were enthralled by Jung Ho Yeon (정호연) performance as player No.67, Kang Sae Byeok in the series.
The details related to the cast of “Squid Game” are currently receiving a lot of attention from the audience. As some fans may already know, Jung Ho Yeon (정호연) who recently shot to stardom after her performance in the K-drama “Squid Game” is close friends with BLACKPINK’s Jennie.
Recently, Jung Ho Yeon excited fans by taking to Instagram and uploaded an adorable photo of her and Jennie during the BLACKPINK member’s visit on the set of the series. Fellow “Squid Game” star, Lee Jung Jae has previously revealed that the global K-pop idol Jennie not only sent a coffee truck to show her support for her best friend Jung Ho Yeon, but she actually paid a personal visit as well.
The lovely glimpse of Jennie’s visit to the filming set thrilled fans as the post shows Jennie and Jung Ho Yeon sitting on a bed with the actress still in her make-up and costume, posing in a friendly manner. The official account of Netflix Korea even commented on the adorable photo, writing, “I support this combination, very much indeed.”
Jung Ho Yeon even returned the favour to her close friend’s support in the most special way by featuring Jennie’s name in the show’s credits. Should we expect a Jennie’s cameo now in the second season of “Squid Game”? Fingers crossed hoping that it would happen if the second season is confirmed.
As an appreciation for Jennie’s support to Jung Ho Yeon and the “Squid Game” cast, Netflix sent Jennie a surprising and quite an interesting gift that gained attention from fans. She received the creepy doll as a gift from Netflix’s “Squid Game” team.
With a 2 year age difference, the two stars get along well as they often take photos and hang out together. Jung Ho Yeon is often seen supporting Jennie at BLACKPINK’s concerts to cheer her friend.
Aside from the lovable aforementioned connection between the celebrities, many were also surprised to know that “Squid Game” is Jung Ho Yeon’s debut as an actress. The model-turned-actress’s charismatic first-time performances are well appreciated especially when she acts alongside talented cast members.
While many have discovered her through the drama, the newly turned actress actually has a thriving career as a model that started before her “Squid Game” debut. Since the age of 16, Jung Ho Yeon began her journey as a model and was even the runner-up on “Korea’s Next Top Model”! The fashion icon also modelled for many global fashion brands and regularly appeared on various fashion magazines and catwalks.
