As South-Korean cinema continues to rise, "Squid Game" is at the forefront of the pack. It left us all in suspense after the cliffhanger drew our collective breath away.


To fans' delight, "Squid Game" is officially returning to Netflix. The streaming service announced the beloved South Korean series' second season on June 12, 2022.

Hwang Dong-hyuk, the writer, executive producer, and director of "Squid Game," took his time to write a letter to his fans.

In the letter, he expressed, "And now, Gi-hun returns. The Front Man returns." In October 2021, Netflix informed CNN that this show was their biggest launch on their platform.



The protagonist Seong Gi-Hun has a daughter Ga-yeong. Due to money issues, he finds it challenging to visit his daughter, with who he has a strained relationship.

So, at the end of season one of "Squid Game" and the possible end of the series, he walks to the plane, finally able to visit his child residing in the United States.


Suddenly, he turns back and walks toward the camera. This massive twist hinted that there would likely be a second season. Dong-hyuk commented that they were not sure if they should have let their protagonist step on the flight after all, saying to EW:

"We constantly asked ourselves, is it really right for Gi-hun to make the decision to leave and go see his family, to pursue his own happiness?"

Ultimately, this creator felt they made the correct choice for the series because it is in line with the show's message. He said, "The question that we want to answer — why has the world come to what it is now?"



The protagonist Gi-hun is played by Jung-Jae Lee. Lee made his screen debut in 1993 when he played a role in his first movie. However, it was only in 1998 when he found himself acting in "An Affair" by E-J Yong – an award-winning production.

He then received Best Actor for "City of the Rising Sun" at the Chungryong Awards ceremony. Beyond his on-screen performances, he works as a fashion model, gaining significant success in this field.


We wait with bated breath to see what happens in the second season of "Squid Game." But, we face a different type of question for an upcoming popular movie series – "Fantastic Beasts 4."

The question does not involve the character or plot but rather if a core actor from the magical universe who is embroiled in a scandal will be returning. This time, it's Ezra Miller who is facing another legal allegation involving a minor.
