Director Hwang Dong-hyuk, “Lee Jung-jae and Lee Byung-hun will be back in ‘Squid Game 2’, Jung Ho-yeon might return as her own evil twin sister”

Director Hwang Dong-hyuk talked about the main characters in Season 2 of Netflix’s original series “Squid Game”.

Squid Game” director Hwang Dong-hyuk appeared on Deadline Contenders Television at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, California, the U.S on April 9th (local time).

According to Deadline, director Hwang said, “Sung Ki-hoon will be back for sure. I believe the Front Man will also return”.

Sung Ki-hoon played by Lee Jung-jae hinted at his comeback at the end of Season 1. However, this is the first time that Lee Byung-hun, who plays Front Man, is said to return to the story. In an interview in the past, actor Lee Jung-jae once said, “I want to act alongside Lee Byung-hun in Season 2”.

Earlier, when asked about the character Kang Sae-byeok of Jung Ho-yeon at the Red Carpet event of the U.S PGA Awards in March, director Hwang said, “How about making Kang Sae-byeok have a twin sister?”.

Although it was just a joke, considering Jung Ho-yeon’s global popularity, the possibility of her comeback is still high. The director himself teased to Deadline about Jung Ho-yeon’s reappearance as her own evil twin sister

Director Hwang said, “My hope is that a work like Squid Game in a little way has opened the door. I hope American audiences give the piece a chance and that you read the subtitles and watch without dubbing. We’re hoping that we open that opportunity”

Regarding his upcoming “Killing Old People Club”, he said, “For this project, it’s impossible not to consider the political polarization, the cultural differences and difficulties, as well as environmental climate changes that have been happening. I will be forced to observe and criticize and continue to handle these topics in future projects”.

Released as a Netflix series in late September last year, “Squid Game” swept various awards, including Oh Young-soo’s Best Supporting Actor in the Drama category at the 79th Golden Globe Awards, Lee Jung-jae and Jung Ho-yeon’s Best Actor – Actress and the drama’s Outstanding Action Performance as a Stunt Ensemble award at the 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards
