In 2017, Elordi played the role of the Rooster in Swinging Safari, an Australian comedy-drama film. He then booked the role for the role of Noah Flynn in The Kissing Booth. The shooting took place in South Africa, after which the film was released with great success.
The success of the film was crucial for Elordi’s career. Before and after the release of the film, he had barely 15,000 followers on Instagram and his number rose to 4.4 million. Jacob Elordi became famous not only in Australia but also in America.

The relationship between Jacob Elordi and Joey King is without a doubt the main topic of conversation when it comes to The Kissing Booth.

They started out as friends before they realized that there was a chance to achieve something more between them.
