BLINKs aren’t the only ones who know how angelic BLACKPINK‘s Jennie is. Even Jung Ho Yeon, who plays Kang Sae Byeok in Netflix‘s hit new K-Drama Squid Game, deemed her “a literal angel” in a new interview with TenAsia—here’s why.
If you haven’t heard already, BLACKPINK’s Jennie and Jung Ho Yeon are actually the best of friends. While Squid Game was Jung Ho Yeon’s first job as an actress, the two have been BFFs since her model days. Over the years, they’ve snapped photos of themselves hanging out together, cooking together, and more.
When BLACKPINK were on tour prior to the pandemic, Jung Ho Yeon was there to show Jennie love and support.
So, perhaps it should come as little surprise that Jennie returned the favor while Jung Ho Yeon was shooting Squid Game—and she was so supportive that the actress deemed her idol bestie an “angel.”
“Jennie has been extremely excited for me since I told her that I got the role for ‘Squid Game,’” said Jung Ho Yeon, expressing her deep appreciation for her friend. “She sent me a coffee truck and hyped me up in her Instagram stories,” she continued, referencing the truck Jennie sent to her way back in July 2020.
