Jung Ho Yeon Reveals her 'Terrifying Moment' Filming 'Squid Game'

The 27-year-old up-and-coming actress shares her thoughts and experience during the production of the Netflix series.

In one of her interviews, Jung Ho Yeon says that the glass stepping stone was one of her "most memorable" moments because the scene felt real to her.

"Filming Glass Stepping Stones was actually terrifying," she mentioned, adding, "The set was about one meter above the ground. We put real tempered glass there and ran around on it."

However, PD Hwang Dong Hyuk explained why the production team chose this kind of setup.

The "Squid Game" director revealed that the location is set in "a mere 1.5 meters," which can make the actors frightened and will allow them to "express the unnoticed rigidity and fear of the body."

Moreover, PD Hwang Dong Hyuk says that the set caused a "power of realism," showing the natural fear of the cast that translates into the screen.

As seen on "Squid game' episode 7, players only have 16 minutes to cross a bridge with either panel of tempered and regular glass.

If they step on the wrong glass, it will cause them to shatter into pieces leaving the participant to fall out of the bridge.

In this round, only Kang Sae Byeok, Seong Gi Hun (Lee Jung Jae), and Cho Sang Woo (Park Hae Soo) advance to the next game.
