Squid Game Season 2: Squid Game is rolling for the second season, confirmed news by its creator. Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed that they have already started the shooting of the second season of the biggest show on Netflix.
Netflix recently confirmed that Squid Game is very close to being the most-watched show on Netflix. Squid Game was created for a global audience and people are loving the show at its best.
Hwang shared many details about the second season of the show and we are really excited about the second season as the first season is amazing to watch, it take us to our childhood where we used to play all the games featured in the game.
Creator suggests that the first season of the show is very much cryptic about the characters of the show and needs to be explored more. So the idea of Squid Game Season 2 will be exploring the characters like, the Little cute salesman, Shang Woo, Il-Nam (player number 001), Ali is also a bit hidden and can be unveiled.
Hwang, in an interview, shared that these characters need some spotlight so that it’ll be more interesting to watch Squid Game.
Why they choose these games?
Creators chose games that we used to play in our childhood because the games kid play has the most simple rules which is easy to understand for anyone from anywhere. Creators doesn’t want to make the games complicated as it may take a while to understand the game to enjoy the show.
Here is what Hwang Dong-hyuk said about the games selected for the show, “Well, when I began making Squid Game, I actually did target a global audience. The children’s games that are featured in the show are those that will bring out nostalgia from adults who actually played them as a kid; but they’re also games that are really easy to understand. So anyone watching the show, from anywhere in the world, can understand the rules of the games very easily. And since the games are so simple, the viewers don’t need to focus on trying to understand the rules. They can instead focus on the inner feelings and the dynamics between the characters a lot more, and then they can get immersed into the whole experience, cheering for and empathising with the characters.”
“And personally, I wanted to create a story that is very entertaining — something really fun to watch. I mean, it may be ironic for me to say that because there are some terrible atrocities that happen in the story, but I really wanted to create a story that will be immersive. And I wanted the viewers who watch Squid Game to start questioning themselves. How am I living my life? Who am I among these characters, and what kind of world am I living in? I wanted these questions to be asked. As you start watching, I want you to think, “What kind of story is this? This is all too surreal.” But then as you watch more, you will get attached to the characters and starting cheering for some of them, and hating others. And then eventually, you should have the experience of connecting it all to the real world that we’re living in. In that way, you’ll be able to draw some of the messages from the series.”, he added.
Hwang Dong-hyuk, creator of squid game wanted to join a Real Death Game?
Hwang Dong-hyuk, in the same interview, said he would consider signing up for such a game if there would have any death game for a really big amount of money as a cash prize.
He said, “Well if I were in Il-nam’s shoes — the old man with the brain tumor who has only a year or two to live — I would probably seriously consider it.”
