Director Hwang, "It's currently all in my head. I'm still conceptualizing everything so it's too early to say when or how it will come out. I will promise this, though. Gihoon will come back, and he will do something for the world." 


1. [+572, -41] Doing something to save the world.... well this sounds like a flop

2. [+349, -7] Please don't disappoint like 'Train to Busan 2' and perfect it even if it takes longer.... 

3. [+201, -26] Perhaps it's best to leave it be while people are still applauding

4. [+158, -4] The show will flop if they rush it too fast. It's going to be even harder if they drop spoilers like this before it's even released. The charm of 'Squid Game' was in not knowing what the twists and turns would be. If the second season doesn't have the same impact, you may as well not produce it.

5. [+26, -0] This will flop ㅋㅋㅋ Sung Gihoon did not let himself surrender to the 45.6 billion won prize money but it seems the director himself already has ㅋㅋㅋㅋ He's going to turn Sung Gihoon into a red-haired super hero

6. [+27, -4] The best part about 'Squid Game' was their portrayal of human instinct. I didn't really care for all of the characters and their back stories, which is why I found the ninth episode the most boring. Sung Gihoon's character isn't realistic to me, but Cho Sangwoo was amazing. He wasn't a tryhard but stood his ground. The way he acted all crazy when he was at risk of dying. I liked that. It was realistic. I even liked the smaller details like how Gihyun always kept Sangwoo at a distance even though they grew up together because somewhere inside, he instinctively looked down on him for being a gambling addict. That was so realistically portrayed.

7. [+34, -16] I'm really looking forward to 'Squid Game 2'...

8. [+19, -1] Second seasons usually don't do well... and now I'm even more nervous with the spoiler about saving the world ㅋㅋ well, at least Lee Jung Jae doesn't have to worry about employment for a while

9. [+17, -1] I'd rather he just not...

10. [+13, -0] Please leave out anything about Lee Jung Jae saving the world. If you turn this into some superhero story, you're going to flop.

11. [+9, -1] I'd prefer if they just did a prequel and showed why the master joined the game and become the master 

12. [+8, -1] Considering the syndrome this show caused, it's impossible for them to not produce a second season, but I'm quite worried for it already ㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+1,146, -97] Season 2 is going to flop no matter what... there's just too high of an expectation for it.

2. [+246, -10] The expectations are too high for a second season to be successful... but I support them and hope they produce something good.

3. [+148, -1] They'll be alright if they base the season off of the year Lee Byung Hun won the game

4. [+55, -10] They have to go back in time for the next season. Lee Jung Jae is the only one left in the last season, how can they make more off of that? Tell us why Lee Byung Hun decided to wear the mask!!

5. [+30, -1] Gihoon was not anyone special. He's an average person who won the game off of luck. It's going to be so unrealistic to turn him into a hero next season and somehow infiltrate the system to take it down. The realism is what made the show successful and turning him into a hero would ruin that. Surely they wouldn't go this route, right?

6. [+27, -2] The reason 'Old Boy' is cited as work of art time and time again is that there was no sequel

7. [+20, -1] I really hated Lee Jung Jae's red hair... reminded me of Kim Jang Hoon. Please leave his hair alone in the second season..
