In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the model revealed she lost six pounds a week after the series was released on the social media platform.

"I think [I knew] a week after it opened," she said. "I couldn't follow the speed of the growth of the 'Squid Game' success because, since COVID, I think everything is faster and even online, it happens just so quick."

She added that she could not eat since she could not follow when the series became successful. Despite the positive news, Jung Ho Yeon reportedly started losing herself and questioned how she could cope with her recent growth.

It surely has been overwhelming for her since officially becoming an actress, but Jung Ho Yeon's fans could not help but feel worried about her well-being.
