‘Squid Game’ Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk Reveals Which Characters Are Returning For Season 2
This is the director’s first official confirmation of season 2
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Hwang Dong-hyuk, the creator of the most famous South Korean series, Squid Game, which debuted last year, stated that two significant personalities from the survival drama series will return for the second season.
According to Deadline, Hwang and actor Park Hae-soo, who played Cho Sang-woo in the series, joined TV editor Peter White at the magazine’s annual Contenders Television at Paramount Studios to discuss some of the things fans can expect for Season 2. The writer and director said during the event that two characters from the series will be returning: the protagonist and one of the key antagonists. “Without a doubt, Gi-hun.” “He will be returning,” Hwang said, “and I believe the Front Man will be back as well.”
Gi-hun, the lone survivor and winner of the series of lethal children’s games, was this year’s recipient of the Screen Actors Guild Award for best actor for his portrayal in the dystopian series, Lee Jung-jae. At the end of the season, Gi-hun is seen deciding against visiting his daughter in the United States, instead opting to terminate the gruelling annual games in which he participated. The Front Man, on the other hand, is the antagonist who pushed the game’s organisation, controlling everything while the 456 destitute participants risked their lives for the incredible reward of over 45 billion won. He is played by Korean celebrity Lee Byung-hun beneath the mask.
These characters’ reappearance should come as no surprise, given that they were among the few who made it to the conclusion of the series. Nonetheless, this was Hwang’s first formal assurance that the show will return for Season 2. Around mid-March, the author also hinted at the possibility of HoYeon Jung, who played player 67, Kang Sae-byeok, returning as a twin sister at the PGA Awards, although this may have been a prank.
“For this project and future initiatives, it’s hard not to consider political divisions, cultural differences and problems, as well as the climatic changes that have been happening,” Hwang added. I’ll be compelled to watch and critique, and I’ll have to deal with these issues in future projects.”
Squid Game has been the most-watched Netflix series since its debut in September of last year. Fans all across the world are now waiting for further information about Season 2.
