Did you know that Jung Hoyeon, who showed an impressive performance in Squid Game, has a lover? She is known to have a lover who is nine years older, who is also known to be a male actor.
Jung Hoyeon ‘s boyfriend is Lee Dong-hwi.
Jung Hoyeon, who received explosive attention from fans around the world with the release of ‘Squid Game’, has jumped from 400,000 to 16.8 million (as of the 8th) on Instagram.
At the time of the interview, Jung Hoyeon , who was on the verge of reaching 10 million followers, said, “I talked to Lee Yu-mi on the phone.
I said ‘Congratulations, big star,’ and Yumi said, ‘Congratulations, world big star’. We congratulated each other.”
He continued, “I was grateful for this kind of interest and love, but I was worried about whether we could receive such attention, and I wasn’t happy. The burden seems to be increasing. Senior Park Hae-soo also said that we should keep our feet on the ground. I am still remembering those words,” he said.
Jung Hoyeon also revealed the reaction of actor Lee Dong-hwi, who has been in a public relationship since 2016.
He revealed that he received advice and help from him, who is a long time senior as an actor, and said, “I asked for advice from not only Donghwi oppa, but also from my fellow actors and colleagues. I worked hard, auditioned and passed, but the pressure was greater than the excitement and joy. I tried to ask for advice to relieve that burden.” “During filming, I focused on the advice of my colleagues, seniors, and the director who I worked with while filming. Donghwi oppa is happy and proud of this kind of reaction right now, just like his job. I’m cheering you on.” He smiled.
How many points would he want to give himself after successfully completing his first acting challenge in ‘Squid Game’?
Jung Hoyeon said, “I want to give it 5 out of 10. If you’re trying to give me a better score than that, I don’t think I did it. “Then why I want to give it 5 points is because I want to raise my self-esteem. I worked really hard. did my best. Although the method was clumsy, I sincerely worked hard.”
As much as the popularity is, the pressure on the next work must be great. “There are a lot of shortcomings,” he said. There is also a burden. Although I am still young, there were times when my career as a model was good and there were times when I was bad. The only thing I have learned through that experience is to do my best every day and work hard. Things that are going to happen are meant to happen. I will do my best to the point of dying, but the idea is not to be intimidated by things that have not happened in advance.”
He continued, “No matter what works or characters come in the future, I will work really hard on the next one. I will do my best. I want to do it all. I am accumulating more acting and I want to study. I want to meet various characters, directors, and scenarios. Please call me.” He trembled softly.
“As a model, there is nothing I haven’t done before. There were times when I went abroad to grow my career. Anyway, now is the time to start as an actor. I am grateful that my first project went so well, but there is also pressure. As Park Hae-soo said, I want to put my feet on the ground and go step by step. Are you a role model? I am not someone who lives with a clear role model. I tend to motivate people to move forward with the words of people who think they are cool. This time, director Hwang Dong-hyuk once said that it is a process of realizing one’s own shortcomings, but that remains a big life quote for me. I want to be a person who constantly works hard. That’s my goal. (Laughs)”
