SAG-AFTRA gave the green light to SAG-AFTRA. Jung Ho-Yeon.

On Sunday, Feb. 27, the biggest names in Hollywood joined together at the Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar for the 2022 SAG Awards. During this televised celebration, the best performances in TV and film were honored, including those nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series category.

This is the final question: Who won this prize? None other than Jung Ho-Yeon, for her work as Kang Sae-byeok in Squid Game.

Although this performer is certainly the frontrunner in her field, she was not necessarily an automatic choice. She was also nominated beside Morning Show‘s Jennifer Aniston, The Handmaid’s Tale‘s Elisabeth Moss, Succession‘s Sarah SnookAnd Morning Show‘s Reese Witherspoon.

Thus, it’s no wonder that Jung was moved to tears by her big win Sunday. Jung, who speaks Korean as her first language, stated via her translator that she had sat for many hours watching your performance on television and dreamed of becoming an actor one day. I just wanted to thank you.”
