Ho Yeon Jung became the only actor from Korea to be chosen as one of the “Phenoms” of the US “TIME100 NEXT”.
The list of the “TIME100 NEXT,” an expansion of the “Time 100,” the most influential people in the world, was released on the 28th by one of the top US weekly news magazines, “TIME.” 100 next-generation leaders who are influencing the future in a variety of industries, including business, entertainment, sports, politics, health, science, and activism, have been chosen for the “TIME100 NEXT” list.
Jeong Ho-yeon was selected as a “Phenoms,” a label given to newbies who have attained a syndrome-like level of fame in a certain field. “Squid Game” director Hwang Dong-hyeok stated, “Ho-Yeon Jung, in my opinion, battles daily with her popularity, expectations, jealously over her achievement, and personal ambitions. I make fun of her calling her “Warrior” frequently. She engages in a lot of combat. She definitely possesses the abilities and courage to play. And I hope his acting will become a place of rest, not a battlefield.
Ho-Yeon Jeong was included in the list of “Phenoms” together with well-known Hollywood actors, Simon Ashley, Za Morant, and Sydney Sweeney. In addition, the Estonian Prime Minister Kaya Callas, the internationally renowned music star Caesar and the actress Lily Collins were included.

She also made history by becoming the first Asian woman to grace the cover of “Vogue US” and winning the Best Actress Award at the “American SAG” for her first acting role in “Squid Game.” Jung Ho-yeon breaks the record for the first time as she continues the rare global syndrome around the globe.
She is best known for her parts in the Joe Talbot film “The Governesses” for “Gravity” and “Rome,” as well as the new Apple TV+ thriller series “Disclaimer” from Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón. She has announced that she will play the lead in his upcoming project, which is garnering international attention.
