Model and actor Jeong Ho-yeon (28, photo), who rose to stardom with her debut Netflix original series ‘Squid Game’, was selected as the only Korean actor to be selected as the ‘100 Rising People’ (TIME100 NEXT) selected by Time magazine in the US. Every year, Time announces the world’s most influential people as ‘Time 100’, and the 100 rising figures are an extended version. 100 next-generation leaders who shape the future in each field, including business, entertainment, sports, politics, health, science, and civil society, will be selected.

In the list of 100 people announced by Time on the 28th (local time), Ho-yeon Jung was named in the ‘phenoms’ category, which selects newcomers who caused a syndrome in a field. Along with him, American actors Sidney Sweeney and Simon Ashley, and NBA star Zamorant were honored.

Time introduced Jeong Ho-yeon through director Hwang Dong-hyuk, who wrote and directed the screenplay for the squid game.

According to Time, director Hwang said, “I think Jung Ho-yeon is fighting his own fame, expectations, jealousy and desire for success every day.

He added, “There is no doubt that Jeong Ho-yeon has the skills and courage to fight countless battles.

Previously, Jung Ho-yeon won the Best Actress Award at the American Actors Guild Awards (SAG) and Best Actress in an Action Series at the Critics’ Choice Super Awards in the United States last year. This year, she was also nominated for an Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress, one of the most prestigious awards in American broadcasting.

In addition, it has signed an exclusive contract with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), a large American entertainment agency to which director Steven Spielberg, actor Tom Hanks, singer and actor Zendaya Coleman belong, and will spur overseas activities in the future.

In fact, Jung Ho-yeon has confirmed her next work as the lead role in Alfonso Cuaron’s new thriller series ‘Disclaimer’ by Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron and Joe Talbot’s new movie ‘The Governance’.
