Squid Game actress Jung Ho-yeon has a legion of new fans keen to know about her love life after the Netflix show catapulted her into the spotlight – so, does she have a boyfriend?
Netflix fans are keen to find out more about the 27-year-old, including whether she has a husband, boyfriend, or if she’s dating anyone.
It’s recently emerged Ho-yeon does have a boyfriend, and they’ve reportedly been dating since 2016.
The model told a Korean publication her partner's “very proud of the success.”
Ho-yeon is dating fellow actor Lee Dong Hwi, who she sees as a key mentor in her rise to fame, given Squid Game is her first on-screen acting gig.
She told Herald Pop: “Since he’s also an actor, he’s a good senior, a good friend, and a good person. He cheers me on a lot, and he worries for me as well. He’s sort of like a dad.”
Dong Hwi, 36 years old, is a famous actor in South Korea, starring in films such as The Handmaiden and Extreme Job.
He rose to fame on a popular TV show called Reply between 2015 and 2016.
While Ho-yeon’s boyfriend hasn’t made an appearance on her Instagram profile, where she mostly posts her modelling shoots and the odd selfie.
