In an interview with Vogue, Jung stated, "My entire life changed in just one month." The actress is February 2022 cover star for the magazine.

She also shared her thoughts about acting in Hollywood in the future. She said, “I have always wanted to go to Hollywood and to act in America, and I still do... But Squid Game changed my mindset. It doesn’t have to be an American movie or a European movie, it’s the story and the message that are more important. The feeling, there's a limit to what words can express," she added.

According to People tabloid, getting the role in the show was not an easy affair for her. During the audition process, Jung left her New York City residence at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic to participate in a callback. "I didn't even have time to pack my things," she recalled. "I had to leave my Balmuda oven and a brand-new naembi [pot]."

As of now, Squid Game creator and Netflix are in conversation for season 2 and possible season 3.
