So during the holiday season, I came to Korea and took acting classes.”

After finishing acting courses, she received her first-ever script for what turned out to be her first role:Squid Game. Now, after cinching an ambassadorship and one of the most talked-about roles of 2021, there's little chance the spotlight on Jung will flicker out anytime soon.
