Jung Ho Yeon has become the 8th followed celebrity in South Korea eclipsing IU! The 'Squid Game' star has amassed 23.73 million followers on Instagram, pushing IU to ninth place. Owing to the popularity of 'Squid Game', Jung Ho Yeon rose to stardom overnight and became the most followed South Korean actress, beating Lee Sung Kyung previously.

The most followed Korean celebrity in South Korea is Jung Ho Yeon's best friend and BLACKPINK member Jennie with 57.40 million followers, followed by BTS, then BLACKPINK's Jisoo, Rose, followed by BLACKPINK's official Instagram, actor Lee Min Ho, and Cha Eun Woo in the 7th place and now Jung Ho Yeon at the 8th place. 

Earlier this month, Jung Ho Yeon signed an exclusive contract with the American talent management Creative Artists Agency (CAA). SM entertainment artists NCT 127, Super M, as well as aespa, are part of the agency’s talent as well as GOT7’s Mark, who also signed with the American label in April this year. The label boasts of some amazing American artists as well - Beyonce, Justin Bieber and Cardi B to name a few. Great going, Jung Ho Yeon.
