The resounding success of 'Squid Game' has transformed Jung Ho Yeon into an international star. The actor recently appeared alongside Jim Carrey in The Weeknd's music video ‘Out Of Time.’ She also signed a series alongside Cate Blanchett and Sacha Baron Cohen called ‘Disclaimer.’ And now, she has been cast in Joe Talbot's film ‘The Governesses.’

On April 7, 2022, Jung Ho Yeon’s agency Saram Entertainment announced, “Jung Ho Yeon has been cast to play a lead role in ‘The Governesses,’ which will be directed by Joe Talbot.” The film, set to be shot in Spain, will be based on Anne Serre's novel of the same name. The book that has been described as a feminist fantasy is centered around three rebellious governesses who shake up the family in which they work by inspiring the minds of the boys in their care. On the back of Talbot's success with ‘The Last Black Man in San Francisco,’ 'The Governesses' will be one of the most awaited films of the year.
