After a successful first season, Netflix and the makers had confirmed Squid Game 2. The Korean thriller impressed and astounded a lot of fans with its storyline. Created by Hwang Dong-hyuk, the first season starred Lee Jung-jae as Seong Gi-hun, Park Hae-soo as Cho Sang-woo, Wi Ha-joon as Hwang Jun-ho, HoYeon Jung as Kang Sae-byeok, Lee Byung-hun as Hwang In-ho and Gong Yoo as a salesman (the one who plays ddakji).
The first season gave a conclusion to every character’s story. However, fans wanted more of the Korean thriller. Well, soon, they will get what they want with some popular characters returning. There is also going to be an addition of a new character.
Netflix shared a post in which director Hwang Dong-hyuk has revealed the details of the new season. He wrote, “It took 12 years to bring the first season of ‘Squid Game’ to life last year. But it took 12 days for ‘Squid Game’ to become the most popular Netflix series ever.”
