Squid Game star Jung Hu-Yeon has become the most popular Korean actress on Instagram today. She has amassed approximately 15 million followers in less than a month.

Jung Hu-Yeon’s Career

The actress began her career as a model at the age of 16, almost 11 years ago. She participated in season 4 of Korea’s Next Top Model in 2013 but was eliminated in the second episode. Her wild card entry led her to become one of the runner ups of the competition.

Later, she became a full-time runway model and dyed her hair red, which became her signature look. She even worked for labels such as Opening Ceremony, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Versace and Louis Vuitton. Jung Hu-Yeon made her acting debut with Netflix’s Squid Game which is on its way to become the most watched Netflix show of all times.


Jung Hu-Yeon has been dating Korean actor Lee Dong Hwi since 2016. During an interview with a Korean daily, Jung said her boyfriend Lee is “very proud of the success of Squid Game.”

She added, “Since he’s also an actor, he’s a good senior, a good friend, and a good person. He cheers me on a lot, and he worries for me as well. He’s sort of like a dad.”

Jung Hu-Yeon’s Net Worth

Her estimated net worth is approximately $1-5 million. Her income is under the wraps but since she has worked for multiple luxury brands and was recently declared the face of Louis Vuitton Korea, she must easily earn $500k per annum.
