Squid Game actor Lee Jung-jae has swopped his green tracksuit for something a lot more glamorous.
His agency announced that the South Korean star was appointed Italian luxury house Gucci‘s global ambassador on Thursday (Nov 11). Lee also shared a few photos of himself in sharp suits on his one-month-old Instagram account.
Just last month (Oct), his co-star Jung Ho-yeon, 27, was named the global ambassador of another luxury brand, Louis Vuitton.
After the smashing success of the Netflix K-drama which took the world by storm after it premiered in September, members of the ensemble cast have been catapulted to global fame.

Gucci also announced another addition to its global ambassadors list on Thursday.
