The most-followed Korean actress on Instagram is now Squid Game star HoYeon Jung. 

Following Squid Game’s rapid success – which has actually lead Netflix to be sued due to the traffic surge that was caused by users flocking to watch the new hit series – actress and model HoYeon Jun’s Instagram follower count leapt from 400,000 to 1.4 million, just days after the nine-episode series first launched on September 17, according to Korean media.


As of today, October 4, the star has an even more colossal number of followers.
