Actor Heo Sung Tae Can’t Seem To Escape His “Squid Game” Character, Even On A Plane Journey

Even co-star Jung Ho Yeon couldn’t stop LOL’ing!

Back in 2021, it seemed as if all the world could talk about was Netflix’s series Squid Game. Despite the gruesome and sensitive storylines, everyone became obsessed with the series. The success was reflected in its rising popularity and impact on a global audience, including winning huge awards.

One of the characters that stood out *for all the wrong reasons* was Jang Deok Su with his evil and manipulative ways.

Or went viral for THAT sexy dance.


Recently, Heo Sung Tae caught the attention of netizens when he posted some hilarious content on his Instagram.

On May 12 (KST), Heo Sung Tae posted some videos and photos of him on a plane. Of course, on any kind of flight, the plane has a lot of things to keep passengers entertained, including a wide variety of shows and movies.

Well, it seems like by fate, the actor managed to sit behind someone watching none other than Squid Game. Of course, Heo Sung Tae had to post the moment he appeared on the screen with the caption, “I’m behind you, Mister. Have a nice trip♡ #Deoksoo”.

Netizens in the comments couldn’t get enough and joked that the actor should say something to the passenger to see if he recognized him.

It seems as if it wasn’t just netizens who couldn’t get enough. After the post was shared, co-star Jung Ho Yeon (who played Kang Sae Byeok) commented, “ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ” which shows she’s laughing.

Later on, Heo Sung Tae posted a story of another scene with him in it and once again showcased why he’s so loved on Instagram, as he used the caption “Hey look at me! I’m behind you.”

Considering how mean and scary Heo Sung Tae looks in the series, it would be interesting to see the passenger’s reaction to what he’s actually like IRL. Anyone would have a mixture of confusion, excitement, and happiness. Hopefully, Heo Sung Tae will update netizens with more soon.
