I searched my name every day, and I read all the comments, one by one, even if eight people loved me and only two people hated me, I always cried, at home alone. Even now, I struggle with low self-esteem. – Hoyeon
I have always wanted to go to Hollywood and to act in America, and I still do, But Squid Game changed my mindset. It doesn’t have to be an American movie or a European movie, it’s the story and the message that are more important. – Hoyeon
