Following the success of MrBeast’s viral recreation of the hit Netflix show ‘Squid Game,’ Player #067 is channeling the energy of her original counterpart and is blowing up on Instagram.

Korean actress and model HoYeon Jung soared in popularity when the Netflix show first aired. The original Player #067 went from 400,000 followers prior to its launch on September 17 to over 22 million since.

And it seems like lightning has struck twice. Now, with MrBeast’s viral recreation of the show, a new Player #067 has taken the internet by storm and her social media has been quite the lightning rod.

In just five days since MrBeast’s Squid Game aired, it’s been viewed over 120 million times and as a result, Camilla Araujo has been quite the beneficiary.

Her success isn’t limited to just Instagram either. On TikTok she’s amassed a following of just under 400k, but has already hit the 2.9m like mark.
