Squid Game actor HoYeon Jung has opened up about the possibility of a second season of the hit Netflix show.
The wildly popular Korean drama series currently sits at number one on Netflix UK, and many viewers are keen to learn more about this brutal and utterly engrossing world.
Ever since the nine episode show hit Netflix last month, rumours have circulated about the possibility of a second season, which could perhaps even see the return of some surviving characters.
In what marked her first major TV role, Jung played Kang Sae-byeok, also known as Player 067, a North Korean defector who plays the deadly game with the hopes of paying for a broker to bring her family across the border.
Although a firm fan favourite, it’s unlikely – spoilers ahead – that we’ll see Sae-byeok return to the show unless in flashbacks, given her brutal demise in the penultimate episode.
To be honest, I have never thought about [participating in] the next season, because I am dead. We should all wait for brilliant imagination and ideas from the director and Netflix. Let’s wait together.
During a recent interview with Variety, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk said that while he currently doesn’t have any plans for a second season, any sequel would involve a more collaborative process.
‘If I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone. I’d consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors,’ Dong-hyuk said.
