'Squid Game' Star Hoyeon Jung Becomes First Korean With Solo 'Vogue' Cover
Another milestone in her successful modeling and acting careers.
The February 2022 cover star sat down with the fashion publication to chat about her breakthrough career, in addition to her favorite Korean dishes, her love for New York City and more. “I didn’t even have time to pack my things. I had to leave my BALMUDA oven and a brand-new naembi (Korean for aluminum pot),” she recalls as she talks about her hectic schedule ever since the premiere of Squid Game. She proceeds to confess her love for the Big Apple: “Growing up, I thought I had so many shortcomings, and I always thought that I had to fix them. New York was the first place that told me that they were okay. I remember being so moved.”
Further in the interview, the star jokes about the possibility of her character Kang Sae-byeok returning to Squid Game. “I keep saying to do it like Penthouse,” she references a popular K-drama series where characters come back to life.
