Ho-yeon headlined her first project as an actress in the hit Netflix series Squid Game. 

She played the role of Kang Sae-byeok on the show, a North Korean defector who joins a group of people in a survival game to win billions in cash.

She added, "You make me dream and open the door for me. And I love you my 'Squid Game' crew."

"The feeling, there’s a limit to what words can express. I don’t know why, but I couldn’t eat," she told Vogue. 

"I was so confused, and it was so chaotic. I didn’t believe it. I didn’t trust it. My mom did joke that my acting was very realistic, like when I’m being mean to her," she further shared.
