“I’ve seen many reactions from people about the show, but I don’t want to make season two as a response to those reactions.

“The philosophies I put in season one all naturally extend to season two. Instead of trying to meet the expectations of viewers, I just thought about the last moment when Gi-hun turned away from boarding the plane, and I thought about what he will do next.

“There will naturally be a flow of events that will lead all the way to the end of the season. I can’t share any details yet, but you know that Seong Gi-hun has become a totally new person by the end of season one, so season two is going to be about what that new Gi-hun is going to do and how things will unfold with this new kind of character”, Dong-hyuk said.

Released in 2021, ‘Squid Game’ hit 1.65 billons views hours after its release. The creators have since then promised a season two.
