The popularity of the Netflix original series ‘Squid Game‘, which has shocked the world, is still on the rise. And because of it, the voices asking for season two are louder than ever.
So far, Netflix has produced more than one season for hit shows, such as Stranger Things and Orange Is the New Black. Among Korean content, season two and special episodes for Kingdom have already been unveiled. Therefore, there is a high possibility that Squid Game, too, will come out with season two.
Even in the interview done on the 4th with Variety, Squid Game director Hwang Dong Hyuk said that he wasn’t hurrying to make a new season. But in the latest interview with The Times, Hwang commented that he wants to explore “the issue with police officers” in season two.
He explained, “While I was writing season one, I thought about the stories that could be in season two if I get to do one—one would be the story of the Frontman [an ex-cop who is now one of the masterminds behind the game].”
“I think the issue with police officers is not just an issue in Korea. I see it on the global news that the police force can be very late on acting on things—there are more victims, or a situation gets worse because of them not acting fast enough. This was an issue that I wanted to raise. Maybe in season two, I can talk about this more,” he added.
Judging from his words, season two will be about just policeman In Ho turning into the black-masked Frontman. Maybe we’ll get to see another villain like Darth Vader, who used to be Anakin Skywalker, an innocent boy.
