LOS ANGELES (AP). Netflix’s Squid Game will officially return in its second season, although most TV shows in South Korea only last one season. But due to the show’s global success, its creator and director said, “I almost feel like you’re leaving us no choice.”
“There was so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for the second season,” Hwang Dong Hyuk said on the red carpet of the show on Monday night.
“It’s in my head now. I am currently doing planning. But I think it is too early to say when and how this will happen. So I promise you this, Ki-hun will come back and do something for the world, ”Hwang explained.
The series, which stars Lee Jong Jae and Song Ki Hoon and the other cast members, focuses on people who are so desperate for money that they agree to take part in a series of schoolyard games with a fatal twist.
The South Korean dystopian survival drama is believed to have become Netflix’s biggest TV show. Thanks to this success, her stars have received worldwide recognition.
An actress-turned-model, Jung Ho Young is used to traveling for the fashion world. But this time, when she flew 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 series, said he “made an important decision” to start an Instagram account.
“Now I really wanted to connect with the whole world and everyone, so I started my Instagram account,” said Park.
Lead actor Lee Jong Jae has been working 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 just 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 loved and watched this show so much. ”
The actors and the filmmaker are dreaming of someday working in a Hollywood production, and Jung will jokingly shout, “Hey guys, call our agent!”
