Towards the later half of 2021, you must be hiding under a rock to miss out on the absolute phenomenon that was Netflix’s Korean series, Squid Game.
The to-the-death battle of wits captured the imagination of the whole world – and finally brought to certain individuals’ attention the stream of amazing Korean content that is available to subscribers worldwide.
As madly famous as the show has become it’s hard to accept that we almost nearly missed out on Squid Game altogether.
Squid Game season 2 potential release date: When will it air?
“On your marks. Set. Greenlight.” Get your green trackies prepared, in light of the fact that Squid Game has officially been given the thumbs up for a second season.
The uplifting news – – announced by Netflix via Twitter on June 12 2022 – was joined by a teaser video. Fans pretty much lost their minds demanding the arrival of some of their favourites regardless of their bloody deaths.
Hwang Dong-hyuk was kind enough to affirm the arrival of two season one alums. favorite gambler turned survivor Seong Gi-Hun (Lee Jung-jae) will be back for additional games and blood. In a real sense since when last we saw him he had fallen for the bait and signed himself up for a second round of the squid games!
Lee Byung-hun will repeat his job as Hwang In-ho, also known as The Front Man. We doubt he will be carrying much remorse over killing his brother Hwang Jun-ho. He appears to be a cold and heartless individual however face retribution? Can’t wait to find out.
Of his Squid Game journey Hwang Dong-hyuk said:
“It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year but it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever.
“As the writer, director and producer of Squid Game, a huge shout out to the fans around the world. Thank you for watching and loving our show.”
Squid Game season 2 cast: Who’s in it?
Taking into account the nature of the Squid Game itself, don’t anticipate many familiar faces in the forthcoming season two.
Be that as it may, the one individual we realize we can depend on to return is Seong Gi-hun who, after surviving the game, found himself tempted back in the wake of seeing another person selected for the mega-millions life/death game.
Another significant name that fans would be quick to see return is Gong Yoo, the Korean icon who’s generally recognisable to international audiences as the star of Train To Busan.
However, we should simply hope any returning VIPs improve this time Back when season one released, many fans criticised the Western cast’s acting while playing the evil, decadent men who watch these games unfold from behind the scenes.
John D Michaels, the actor who portrays VIP One, defended his work in an interaction with The Guardian where he talked about why English-language scenes might come across as unnatural in Korean shows.
“I think the first thing to dispel is this myth that they just pick us up off the street,” he said. “It’s different for every show, but non-Korean performers often act with dialogue that is translated by a non-native – sometimes even by Google Translate – so it can sound unnatural.
“And often we don’t have the scripts for the rest of the show. We are only given our scenes, so we have no idea of the tone. If I was editing a Russian actor speaking Russian, I wouldn’t have any idea if he was saying his lines correctly or if his intonation was natural.
“There might be two takes,” he adds. “One of them could be perfect, the other wooden. If I’m editing it, the wooden one might move faster or cut more smoothly or the continuity might be better, so I’d just go with that.”
Squid Game season 2 plot: What will happen?
Toward the end of Squid Game’s first season, Gi-hun has figured out how to win the game against all odds. Be that as it may, the game’s not finished at this point. Following the demise of the Squid Game’s creator, Gi-hun finds that the competition is still going with new recruits.
Considering this, it would be not difficult to proceed with the story with Gi-hun center stage again, giving his very best to stop the game, just as he vows to do in those last moments.
Squid Game is now available to watch on Netflix.
