Jung Ho-yeon Career

Jung started freelance modeling in 2010 at age 16, and walked in shows for Seoul Fashion Week without an agency for two years. While freelancing, she auditioned for the second season of the OnStyle reality competition series Korea’s Next Top Model, but quit after making it into the top 30. She signed with ESteem Models in 2012 and dyed her hair a “fiery” red color, which became her signature look. She then went on to compete on the show’s fourth season in 2013, where, after being eliminated in the second episode and returning in the fifth episode, she placed as a runner-up. She then appeared in spreads for the Korean editions of magazines such as Vogue, Elle, and W before signing with The Society Management and leaving South Korea in 2016 to pursue a career overseas.

She made her international runway debut in September 2016 at Opening Ceremony’s Spring 2017 show at New York Fashion Week. Shortly after, she walked in shows for Marc Jacobs, Alberta Ferretti, Max Mara, and Fendi; appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, Love, and W; and was featured in campaigns for Sephora and Gap. In 2017, she made her Paris Fashion Week runway debut as an exclusive model for Louis Vuitton. In September 2018, named Jung as on their list of the top 50 models. At the 2019 Asian Model Awards, she won the Asian Star Award. She walked in runways for Burberry, Miu Miu, Jason Wu, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Giambattista Valli, Bottega Veneta, Emilio Pucci, Prabal Gurung, Jacquemus, Gabriela Hearst, Moschino, Oscar de la Renta, Roberto Cavalli, Jeremy Scott, Tory Burch, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Acne Studios, Brandon Maxwell, and Lanvin. Jung also appeared on the covers of Vogue Korea, Vogue Japan, CR Fashion Book, and Harper’s Bazaar Korea.

While modeling overseas, Jung periodically returned to South Korea during holidays to take acting lessons, and took three months’ worth of acting lessons altogether. She also learned English in order to help her learn acting. In January 2020, Jung was signed to Korean talent agency Saram Entertainment. She made her acting debut in the 2021 Netflix K-drama in which she played Kang Sae-byeok, a North Korean defector and pickpocket who needs money to support her younger brother and track down her mother in North Korea. One month after signing with Saram, she was given three scenes from the show’s script, and auditioned for the role via video while in New York for New York Fashion Week. She was then asked by director Hwang Dong-hyuk to audition again in person in South Korea, where she was given the part immediately. She was paid only a few thousand dollars USD per episode.

She studied for the role of Sae-byeok by practicing her character’s Hamgyŏng dialect with real North Korean defectors, watching documentaries about North Korean defectors, and learning martial arts. She also drew upon her own feelings of loneliness after leaving South Korea to build the character, and wrote a daily diary from her character’s perspective. Sae-byeok became a fan favorite, and Jung was called ’s breakout star by critics.


In October 2021, she was named Louis Vuitton’s Global House Ambassador for fashion, watches, and jewelry. That same month, she partnered with Adidas Originals for their Adicolor campaign.
