LOS ANGELES – The creator of Netflix’s “Squid Game” has said the hit TV series will be back for a season two, even though most TV shows in South Korea only last one season. Due to the show’s worldwide success, Hwang Dong-hyuk said, “I almost feel like you don’t give us a choice.”
“There has been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season,” he said during a red carpet celebration on the show Monday night.
“It’s in my head right now. I am currently in the planning process. But I think it is too early to say when and how this will happen. So I promise you this, Gi-hun will be back and he will do something for the world, ”Hwang explained.
Netflix has not officially announced a second season. The series, starring Lee Jung-jae as Seong Gi-hun and other cast members, centers on people who are so desperate for money that they agree to participate in a series of games in the schoolyard with a deadly twist.
South Korea’s dystopian survival drama is said to have become Netflix’s biggest TV show. This success was accompanied by worldwide recognition of its stars.
Model turned actress Jung Ho-yeon is used to traveling for the fashion world. But this time, as she was flying from Korea to Los Angeles, she met her first fan at the airport, an immigration officer who asked for her autograph.
Actor Park Hae-soo, who plays Jo Sang-woo on the show, said he “made the big decision” to create an Instagram account.
“Now I really wanted to connect with the world and everyone, so I created my Instagram account,” Park said.
Lead actor Lee Jung-jae has worked in Korea for over 25 years. Now his life has changed because he is also recognized on the streets of America.
“It’s amazing, isn’t it? People walk around and say hello, ”Lee said. “So I really don’t know how to respond to all the love. It’s so great to be able to meet the fans who have loved and watched the show so much.
The cast and creator all dream of someday working in a Hollywood production, with Jung jokingly calling, “Hey guys, call our agent!”
