Amid worry that she's losing too much weight too quickly, "Squid Game" star HoYeon Jung has admitted as much.
In recalling her visit to America to promote the Netflix hit series, the actress lost eight pounds within 10 days.
"There was no time to eat," she told Star News. "I lost way too much weight. All the clothes that used to fit me when I first came [to America] are too loose now."
Fans openly worried about the South Korean's weight loss after she posted a series of snaps to her Instagram.
"You are getting skinnier and skinnier," one person commented, adding, "hope you are happy and keeping well with your general health."
Others insisted that the 27-year-old looked "tired."
"Are you okay or eating well. Take care of yourself you and your health come first," one person said. Another fan wrote, "Please make sure you are eating well, working with a holistic dietician, and making sure your physical and mental health are well and energised through food."
Earlier this month, HoYeon addressed her weight loss with The Hollywood Reporter.
"I couldn't follow the speed of the growth of the 'Squid Game' success because since COVID, I think everything is faster and even online, it happens just so quick. It was hard to follow," she said. "I lost 6 pounds in a week when it became successful. I couldn't eat — it wasn't stress, I just didn't know this feeling. 'What's going on out there, who am I?' I was kind of losing myself."
