Jung Ho Yeon received another perk following Squid Game’s success.

Fans who have seen Squid Game recently got worried about Jung Ho Yeon’s health as the model-turned-actress showed worrying body transformation. Though she always had that slim physique, she exhibited a thinner appearance due to the stress the overnight fame caused.

She famously played the role of Player 067, whose real name in the series is Kang Sae Byeok. Her character is a North Korean defector who joins the bloody game in pursuit of winning the prize to get her brother out of the orphanage and save their mother in their home country.

In an interview with Vogue’s Monica Kim, Jung Ho Yeon noted how crazy it was that her whole life changed in just one month following Squid Game’s reign on Netflix.

The hit Korean series beat Bridgerton on the streaming giant’s most-watched series before another Korean series, Hellbound, took over. Squid Game, to be exact, earned the title after 142 million households watched the flick in its first four series.

But while its success skyrocketed the cast members’ statuses, Jung Ho Yeon faced a negative effect that led him to skip her meals. According to the actress, she was confused when Squid Game and her character earned a huge amount of attention. Since she could not eat while trying to process the “unbelievable” thing, she reportedly lost eight pounds immediately.

Amid her health struggles, fans assured her she will always feel loved and cared for as she embarks on her new journey in the TV and film industry.

As Squid Game plans to release seasons 2 and 3 soon, fans could not help but hope she would appear on the screen once more.
