The success of “Squid Game” has taken a toll on at least one of its stars.
In an interview with Korean outlet Star News, actress Hoyeon Jung addressed fan concerns about her apparent weight loss since the premiere of the show.
Jung explained, as translated by allkpop, that she “didn’t even have any time to eat” amid her busy schedule promoting the show in the United States.
“So, I lost way too much weight,” she said. “All the clothes that used to fit me when I first came here [to America] are too loose now.”
Earlier this month, speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Jung said, “I lost six pounds in a week when it became successful. I couldn’t eat — it wasn’t stress, I just didn’t know this feeling. ‘What’s going on out there, who am I?’ I was kind of losing myself.”
