The Netflix Korean drama Squid Game is not the only thing that gained an unexpected influx of followers and fans. The main cast of Squid Game was astounded as fans flooded their Instagram pages with follows. Overnight, their Instagram pages hit the millions and even led Park Hae-soo and Lee Jung-jae to open their first accounts.
The cast of Squid Game has become global sensations because of Netflix, but their social media accounts have become a hot topic. Actors like HoYoeon Jung broke the record, possibly becoming the most followed South Korean model. Who ranks the lowest in the cast, and who takes home the gold as the “most followed”?

South Korean Hollywood actor Lee Byung-hun has the lowest number of followers compared to the rest of the main cast. Lee has been in the industry for some time and is one of the most recognized actors who transitioned to Hollywood. Even Wi Ha-joon was starstruck working with his senior.
In Squid Game, Lee plays the supporting main role as the Front Man. The Front Man is a secretive character who oversees the brutal childhood games with a fatal twist. Lee’s Instagram account has a post showing off his Squid Game care package with his own green tracksuit and the head of the “Red Light, Green Light” doll.

Heo Sung-tae could not stop posting behind-the-scenes photos on Instagram of him and his cast members on the set of Squid Game. The actor plays the least liked character, gang member Jang Deok-su. According to LadBible, the pandemic had Heo lose a lot of weight. When contacted to play the role of Deok-su, director Hwang Dong-Hyuk needed him to look bulkier.
“I gained 15 – 17 kg in one month. I think this is the first time I gained so much weight in such a short period of time,” explained Heo. Fans disliked his on-screen character, but fans can not forget Deok-su’s steamy intercourse scene in the bathroom. In a cast interview with The Swoon, Heo admits to getting many direct messages (DM) from fans asking him to take them to the bathroom.
