Model-actress Jung Ho-yeon shared photos of her with Blackpink’s Jennie on the set of Squid Game on her Instagram on Monday (Sept 27).

Jung – who stars in the hit Korean series – is good friends with the K-pop singer.

It was recently reported that the Blackpink member had also sent the Squid Game cast and crew members a coffee truck during filming.

Squid Game marks Jung’s debut as an actress.

Since the show’s premiere on Netflix, Sept 17, Jung has uploaded a number of photos from her participation in the nine-episode series.

The Korean model got the role after sending director Hwang Dong-hyuk an audition tape, which she did when she was in the United States for New York Fashion Week.

Squid Game centres on a group of financially desperate people who are recruited to participate in a deadly survival game.

While the winner gets to take it all – cash prize of 45.6 billion won (RM162mil) – the loser doesn’t get to go home forever.

During a virtual press conference, the successful model was asked what she would do if she were to receive that much money in real life.

The 27-year-old said: “I really don't know what I would do, because it's such an unimaginable amount of money.

“I think the first thing I would do is to eat Tteokbokki.

“Then I’d go visit a nice hotel, take some time off work, and buy a nice house for my family.

“After that, I'd save up for my later years. And the rest I would donate.”
