Ho-yeon catapulted to global fame after she starred in Netflix's Squid Game in 2021. She played the role of Kang Sae-byeok, a North Korean defector who enters the game to pay for a broker who can rescue her loved ones across the border and to purchase a house for her family.

The Korean star bagged several awards following her portrayal in Squid Game including the Most Outstanding Performance by a female lead in a drama series at the Screen Actors Guild Awards back in March.

"First and foremost, thank you so much. I have sat many of times watching you on the big screen dreaming of one day becoming an actor. I just want to say thank you so much. Thank you... made me dream and open the door for me. And I love you my Squid Game crew!" she said in her speech at the awarding ceremony.

In an episode of Actors on Actors by Variety in June, Ho-yeon talked to Sandra Oh about her experience achieving worldwide popularity after starring in Squid Game.

"When the Squid Game came out it was just going like suddenly, 'We know who you are.' And then people recognize me. Even like you (Sandra), for me I was like a little child in Korea and Grey's Anatomy was like a huge thing in Korea because of you and you're kind of an icon and when I met you at SAG Awards you know me and that was like wow and there was like a bunch of people that already know me and that feeling was weird but also like oh wow," she said.

The actress admitted that though it is such an exciting time, she also has some fears of being in the spotlight.

"But at the same time I'm getting scared, like people are watching me, things that I'm saying or where I'm going. It's like people starting to pay attention," she confessed.
