HoYeon wore a gold embroidered dress from @NicolasGhesquiere’s Spring-Summer 2022 Collection paired with Maison’s High Jewelry Collection pieces. The avant-garde sculptured bustle skirt with crystals and beads stole the show as she walked onto the red carpet.

She styled her black hair in a sleek wave and wore subtle nude makeup to allow her dress to shine as it was intended.

Possible Return For Season 2

HoYeon was an instant fan favorite, and Spoiler Alert viewers were sad to see her die in the series. While the show closed with an open ending, the creator intended it as a single installment. However, due to popular demand, the director Hwang Dong-Hyuk admitted to Deadline that he's working on a possible sequel.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but he hinted at a possible return of HoYeon Jung. But how's that possible since she died? He then laughed and said,

"Let's say maybe she has a twin sister, you'll see."
