Without a doubt, Netflix's Squid Game has picked some of the best actors in the K-entertainment industry. There's veteran star Lee Jung Jae, the chameleon Park Hae Soo, plus the model-turned-actress Jung Ho Yeon. ICYDK, the psychological thriller is her first acting project and wow, she has already shown so much potential! 

In Squid Game, Ho Yeon plays Kang Sae Byeok, a North Korean defector who picks pockets for a living so she can bring her family together. Did you know that she was in New York preparing for fashion week when her agency called her about the casting? Ho Yeon then sent an audition tape and flew to South Korea straight from the Big Apple. During Squid Game's press con, director Hwang Dong Hyuk said that he immediately felt Ho Yeon is perfect for the role because of her "tone, glare, and aura." We couldn't agree more!
