The Time 100 Next list recognises emerging leaders from around the world who are shaping the future and defining the next generation of leadership in five categories – artists, phenoms, innovators, leaders and advocates, according to the magazine. Jung was the only Korean actor to be on the list.

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk gave a reference to the model-actress, who made her acting debut with the 2021 global sensation survival drama. “I-think Ho-yeon is still fighting every day against her fame, the expectations and the jealousy of her success, as well as her own desires. I often joke around and call her a ‘warrior,'” Hwang said.

“There’s no doubt that she has the skill and courage to fight her numerous battles. And I hope her acting career can become a true resting area, not her battleground.” Jung rose to global stardom for her role in Squid GameDisclaimer: HoYeon Jung Aka Jung Ho-yeon Comes Onboard for Alfonso Cuarón’s Upcoming Thriller Series.
