Not only is the storyline itself intriguing, but the characters are relatable. Yet, we know none of it would have been possible without a fantastic cast. Model, now actress Jung Ho Yeon particularly became a favorite of many.
Honestly, if you don’t want to be with her, you want to be her. And, well, one fan kind of did literally become her…
Content creator JJ (@jooshica on social media) recently uploaded a makeup tutorial inspired by Jung Ho Yeon’s Squid Game character Sae Byeok. Shortly after uploading, it went viral!
At first, it appeared like an average makeup tutorial. She began with some concealer and naturally lifted her eyelids.
Additionally, she did some light eyeshadow, including some for fake eyebags. She thinly added eyeliner to mimic the actress’s eyes too.
The serious transformation began when she added some freckles like the character as well as a small mole by her mouth. Already, we could start seeing more resemblance…
After filling in her eyebrows, JJ literally did magic by first applying foundation to her lip, followed by lipstick. Lastly, she countered around her chin.
It seems all simple enough, but all together, her makeup literally transformed her. She looks so much like Jung Ho Yeon in Squid Game!
Viewers couldn’t believe what JJ was capable of doing with just makeup. It’s no wonder the video went viral! As of today, her makeup tutorial has 22.7 million views with 4.2 million likes.
JJ regularly posts content, especially makeup tutorials in which she recreates iconic celebrity looks, including K-Pop idols. In addition to the character of Sae Byeok, she created a makeup tutorial for Ji Young, played by Lee Yoo Mi, which has 2 million views.
