For the first time in the magazine’s 130 year old history, actress Jung Ho-yeon has become the publications first ever East Asian person to feature as solo on the cover. You probably recognize her as one of the breakout stars from the global Netflix sensation, “Squid Games”. She acted as player 067, a North Korean defector who participated in the games to help raise money to try and reunite her family members. Released as Vogue’s 2022 February issue, the headline reads, “Supernova; the Rise of Hoyeon Jung from Model to Squid Game Megastar”. The talented actress started her career as a model in 2010 while participating in the TV competition show Korea’s “Next Top Model”. She later would find success as a model even walking at New York Fashion Week in 2016. What many may find as an interesting fact, Ms. Jung’s role in “Squid Games” was actually her debut-acting role.
