Squid Game's Jung Ho-yeon made history by being the first Asian model to appear alone on the cover of Vogue
Jung Ho-yeon, who made her acting debut in Netflix's original series 'Squid Game,' has been named the February cover model of Vogue magazine. In the 130 years since the inaugural issue of Vogue, Jung Ho-yeon is the first Asian model to be featured solo on the cover page.
"My life has been changed in a month since `Squid Game` was released," Jung Ho-yeon remarked in an interview with Vogue in the United States. She also stated that she has been putting in a lot of effort to learn English, improve her poses and voice, and broaden her horizons through other arts and films.
Regarding Jung Ho-yeon, the Vogue said, "If there is a Korean word to exactly describe Jung Ho-yeon, it is `yeol-shim,` which means something like diligence." Vogue also added, "To work hard, to put your heart and soul into everything, until it feels as though you might explode."
Jung Ho-yeon has been in the United States since the end of last year, when she came to promote her film 'Squid Game.'
She was a presenter at the Gotham Awards, as well as the LACMA Gala and the CFDA Fashion Awards.
At the Gotham Awards, 'Squid Game' was named best long-form TV series.
