South Korean Netflix series Squid Game is at the top of the charts since it was first released on the streaming service. The show not only became fan favourites, but it is currently a global phenomenon. Each cast member, especially, Lee Jung-Jae aka player 456, has been getting all the appreciation for portraying his character with great loyalty and innocence. However, netizens are now slamming an American entertainment channel for asking him silly questions.

The director, Hwang Dong-hyuk along with the other cast members, Park Hae-soo and Jung HoYeon, attended the special screening of their dystopian show in California.

During the red carpet, NBC’s Extra TV asked Squid Game star Lee Jung-Jae, “I’m sure you can’t leave the house anymore without people recognizing you. What has been the biggest life change for you since the series came out?”

Answering the reporter’s question, Lee Jung-Jae responded saying, “Yeah, you’re right; indeed the biggest change is how I’m so recognized by everybody everywhere, even in the united states at that. So when I would go to restaurants, out in the streets I get recognized by so many people and sometimes when they’re staring at me I get startled and think myself, ‘Wait! Why are they looking at me like that?’ But then I lock eyes with them, they instantly talk about Squid Game. Those are the moment when I truly feel like we really did make it big.”

Although netizens have applauded Lee for his answer but many are losing their minds over the question. The actor is among the top celebs in South Korea since the ’90s and at the age of 26, he received the best actor award for ‘City Of The Rising Sun’ making him the youngest actor to get this feat. His other projects have also been critically acclaimed.

Slamming the reporter, a user wrote, “IN AMERICA Super cringe. Lee Jung Jae has been a star for over two decades in Korea. Just because he is Hollywood famous now, does not mean he was not uber famous before,” another wrote, “lmaoooo he’s THE lee jungjae..he’s been a top star since 90s…he experienced all that way before squid game,” a third user wrote, “America is mad local. Lee Jung Jae has been in the public eye since 1993 and been winning awards for his craft since 1995. The audacity.”
