Prior to the Squid Game, Lee Jung Jae was a prominent actor in South Korea. He made his debut in 1993, close to three decades ago! On the other hand, Jung Ho Yeon was a famous model in the industry.

Furthermore, Jung Ho Yeon has been known to flaunt great english skills, so she may have directly understood the question. She’s handled multiple interviews fully in English. Check out one from i-D below,

The interviewer met with criticism about the question.
