Passionate responses poured out as the plan for season 2 of “Squid Game” was unveiled.
According to overseas media outlets such as Forbes, when asked about season 2 of “Squid Game” in an interview on the same day, director Hwang Dong-hyuk replied, “It will happen.” Although he gave no other details, this is the first time that director Hwang has officially stated that he will produce season 2.
Director Hwang Dong-hyuk said, “We are receiving too much demand, attention and love for season 2, so we have no choice but to do it. Season 2 will definitely come out someday, but as for when I cannot tell you the details. I do have a basic storyline for season two – it’s all in my head – and I am currently in the brainstorming stage. What I can say is that Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) is going to be back, and he will do something for the world.”
Foreign media rushed to report Hwang Dong-hyuk‘s interview and announced the production of “Squid Game” season 2.
It is still unclear how season 2 of “Squid Game” will be made and when it will be released. Forbes predicted that “it will take more than a year and a half to produce season 2” over director Hwang’s announcement that he is planning season 2 of “Squid Game“.
In addition, by synthesizing several interviews conducted by director Hwang Dong-hyuk, they predicted what role Ki-hoon would play and that the frontman and his brother in “Squid Game” would return.
Not only Korean fans but also overseas fans and the film industry showed enthusiastic reactions towards the news of the production of “Squid Game” season 2. Dolby, a company specializing in movie sounds, announced on its official Twitter that the production of “Squid Game” season 2 has been confirmed. The post also showcased the gloomy expression of Il-nam (Oh Young-soo) when “finishing Squid Game S1” and his happy face when “S2 was announced today“.
“Squid Game” season 2 is expected to draw great attention for the time being although no one knows when it will be made or what contents it will contain.
