Jung Ho Yeon plays the role of Kang Sae Byeok, a North Korean defector, and wowed audiences with her incredible acting skills. A model-turned-actress, Squid Game was Jung Ho Yeon’s debut as an actress, and it’s safe to say that she absolutely crushed it!
In a recent interview, Jung Ho Yeon talked about the show and the character, and revealed that before taking on the persona of Sae Byeok, she was a much different person, and had nothing in common with her character!
Before meeting Sae Byeok, I was more of a self-centered person. This might have been the biggest hurdle for me to overcome when playing the character. I tried many ways to become the real Sae Byeok, and writing a diary was one of them.
