HoYeon Jung is mostly known for her brilliant performance in Netflix‘s hit show, Squid Games and luckily for us, we got to see her hang up her tracksuit for a glam gown at the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
It was a winning evening all round for the 27-year-old as not only did she take home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, but she seriously impressed on the red carpet.
The South Korean model, who was runner up in the fourth season of Korea’s Next Top Model, went high fashion for her first SAG Awards in a beautifully embellished Louis Vuitton dress.

The actress looked worlds apart from her character Kang Sae-byeok who we’re used to seeing sporting not only the iconic green tracksuit but also a choppy short bob.
HoYeon stunned in a crystal embellished black gown which came with a thigh-high split and very subtle jewels.
The look left her radiating natural beauty as she swept back her jet black hair into a very chic low plait that was styled with a traditional Daenggi hair tie in matching fabric to her dress.
The use of this particular bow was important as it pays homage to the star’s heritage as it is an accessory that has been used to decorate braided hair for centuries.
Many fans took to social media to compliment the young actress on her transformation as one commented: “breathtakingly beautiful.”
A second followed with: “HoYeon looked spectacular tonight. Gorgeous girl in a beautiful @LouisVuitton gown,”

“Stunning the best dressed at the #SAGAwards Stylish classic & elegant, this is how everyone should dress,” said another.
As part of her winning her very well deserved award, HoYeon and her fellow cast member Lee Jung-Jae made history together as they became the first actors from a non-English-language series to win two acting prizes.
The 27-year-old triumphed over the the likes of Hollywood royalty such as Jennifer Anniston and Reese Witherspoon.
Stepping up to accept her win, the star said: “First and foremost, thank you so much. I have sat many times watching you on the big screen dreaming of one day becoming an actor. I just want to say thank you so much.”
There is no question that this was a complete winning evening for the young actress and we can’t wait to see what else she goes on to achieve.
