Squid Game star Jung Ho-yeon, who recently won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series at the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards, talked about working hard and gave advice to women in the April issue of Elle Korea magazine.

“It is true that I try to do my best in everything. It’s because I have respect for the time and effort that the people I work with have made,” Jung said.

She reflected on her success so far, “I think the experiences I have accumulated as a model have been helpful to a majority of the good things that have happened to me recently. The same goes for becoming a global ambassador for Louis Vuitton. That’s why I think I should do my best every moment more often these days.”

Prior to being an actress, Jung has been active as a model since 2010 — she was only 16 then. She was an exclusive model for Louis Vuitton in 2016, and later became the brand’s global ambassador in 2021.

When asked if she has any advice for women her age or younger than her, she was embarrassed at first but later gave a sincere opinion, “I want to tell them to look around their surroundings more. When you are young, you tend to focus only on yourself. I think it would be nice if they paid more attention to their family, friends, and other people around them.”
