Of course, actors are paid well, but for a brand new series, you can’t immediately expect a South Korean actor to catch millions for his performance. So what does Heo Sung-tae mean in his post where he poses with a bunch of flowers and writes: “Thanks for making me a millionaire ♡”?

A few weeks ago, Heo Sung-tae still had a relatively small number of followers. With his cat photos he sometimes got a few thousand likes, but that was all. However, due to the worldwide popularity of Squid Game, his number of followers has risen to over 1.8 million. So now he has become a “millionaire” because of the series.

His followers can appreciate the funny caption. With just this one post, he has already managed to rack up over 1.2 million likes. That is definitely well played!
