Jung Ho-yeon, who became a global star at once with ‘Squid Game’, signed an exclusive contract with the main American agency and started her Hollywood activities in earnest.
Deadline, a leading American entertainment media, reported on November 16th that Jung Ho-yeon signed an exclusive contract with the largest agency in the United States, CAA (Creative Artists Agency).
According to Deadline‘s explanation, many agencies are trying to get in touch with all the actors, including director Hwang Dong-hyeok of the Netflix original series ‘Squid Game’, and Jung Ho-yeon is the first actor in the ‘Squid Game’ crew to sign a contract with an American agency.
Jung made her acting debut as Kang Sae-Byeok, a North Korean defector, in the hit South Korean Squid Game, which ranks as Netflix’s most watched series ever. In the weeks following the series premiere, Jung became the most followed Korean actress on Instagram; she currently has 23.5 million followers.
