We, along with the other 7.7 billion people on this planet, devoured the South Korean drama “The Squid Game” as soon as it premiered last September. And we are almost sure that you, like all of us, will join the screens again when this unusual dystopia premieres again.
There have been rumors about a sequel to The Squid Game for a long time, and the recent news from Netflix is sure to stir up an army of fans. The second South Korean dystopian drama has been officially confirmed. As a film director and screenwriter Hwang Dong-Hyuk said, “It took 12 years to bring the first season of The Squid Game to life. But it only took 12 days for the film to become the highest-rated Netflix series ever.” In his statement, Hwang hinted that Song Ki Hoon and the MC will return for the new season. Also, maybe we will see a man in a ddakji suit again. Let’s return to the first season and collect all the questions that we and millions of viewers around the world would like to receive answers to in the second season.
What will Song Ki Hoon do: will he register again for the competition or will he try to interfere with the game from the outside?
At the end of the first season of the drama, when we see Ki Hoon on the phone with the Game representative, he said that he cannot forgive the Game organizers for what they did to him and his fellow Game members. The person he is talking to urges him not to go crazy, to get on his flight, stating that it will be better for him. But Ki Hong does not get on the plane but goes to take revenge. As it is already clear, we will see all this in the second season.
Notably, he is clearly being followed, as the person he calls knows he is about to board the plane, as he knows that the winner of the Game has decided to destroy the competition that almost destroyed him. I wonder if they’ll let him play the game again? After all, it is clear to the organizers that he is a threat to the competition. Or will the main character have to find some other way to get to the Games, for example, by pretending to be on the side of the organizers and have nothing against the host?
Did Police Officer Jun Ho Die In The Squid Game?
Okay, this is not so much a question as our theory. Maybe in the new season of the South Korean drama, the writers will use a favorite method of resurrecting movie characters, making it so that a police officer, for example, was shot in the shoulder and fell off a cliff into the water? After all, after the scene where the host shoots him, the audience was not shown his body, and we also did not see some creepy doctor saying that “he has no pulse.”
It is quite possible that the South Korean filmmakers will return Jun Ho for the second season. After all, let’s admit that this character has unfinished business with his older brother, worthy of an entire spin-off. And if so, we believe that we will see Jun Ho again.
Can anyone explain how a policeman’s phone didn’t run out of power during a few days of secret investigation?
By the way, this dystopian drama is not only an almost direct accusation of capitalism in the exploitation of people but also an excellent free advertisement for the power-saving mode of Korean smartphones.
Are the Games of The Squid Game guards prisoners, and if so, why?
While Joon Ho poses as one of them, he sees firsthand how the guards who keep the Squid Games running are not completely crazy about their job. Every second of their day is highly regulated, they are executed if they show their face to the player or interfere with the Game, and when they are not working, they are kept in tiny cells under surveillance by cameras. It doesn’t look like the good life they have volunteered for. Maybe their job is just another way to pay off their debt?
Are all the guards as young as the one that Player 119 exposes?
He is understandably horrified when he realizes how young the guard is and asks the exact question that I hope season 2 will answer: what are they doing here?
Will the second season of The Squid Game have the same games as the first?
In the first season, the characters played red-light-green-light (slower, slower), sugar honeycomb, tug-of-war, a ball game (kganbu), a glass bridge, and a game of squid. . Some fans of the series are joking, humorously wondering what games viewers will see in the new season. Maybe new players will have to solve a Rubik’s Cube or, for example, keep the Tamagotchi alive?
Will we get to know more about the wealthy spectators whose faces are hidden behind masks?
The VIPs at the Games are wealthy foreign guests for whom the Games serve as a distraction from their daily routine. I wonder if sponsorship is exactly what keeps the Games going? If not, then how did they find out about the Games?
Will we see Song Ki Hoon’s younger brother and his mother again?
Song Ki-hoon leaves Kang-chul, Sae-byuk’s younger brother, in the care of Sang-woo’s mother, who soon discovers that the suitcase Ki-hoon gave her is filled with an exorbitant amount of money. Will we see these people again? And will the organizers of the Games contact them, for example, in order to stop Ki Hong, who wants to destroy the Games?
Will the next group of participants understand that all the Games are, in fact, printed on the walls?
We still have a question for the writers: why in the first season, the remaining players did not pay attention to the walls when all the beds were removed from the room where they spent the night? The fact is that on the walls you can see drawings of all the Games. Also interesting: will the next group of people who will participate in the new Games pay attention, of course, if in the new season South Korean filmmakers put the same icons on the walls?
