O Yeong-su, the star of the Netflix blockbuster series Squid Game, has shared information about the now-officially-confirmed second season. In an interview with DiscussingFilm, O Yeong-su described how the second season of Squid Game will be overshadowed by the shadow of his character, the deceitful Oh Il-nam, before revealing that the show’s creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has several “new” and even more “dramatic” games planned.
“Well, I recall playing the games from season one when I was small, when I was a child. What else could I possibly think of? But I don’t believe Director Hwang [Dong-Hyuk] would have created new games [for the future season]. I believe he would have acquired some fresh games from his youth, and he admitted to having some that are more dramatic. As a result, I am anticipating it.
The first season of Squid Game, which was widely acclaimed when it was released in September 2021, is about a competition in which 456 participants—all from diverse backgrounds and heavily indebted—play a series of children’s games with potentially fatal results in an effort to win a 45.6 billion Won prize. Oh Il-nam, an elderly man with a brain tumour who appears to enjoy playing the violent adaptations of childhood games that make up the competition, is played by O Yeong-su in the first season of Squid Game.
The contest’s affluent inventor, Oh Il-nam, is identified after what initially looks to be a terrible conclusion. He created the competition to amuse other wealthy people like himself who were bored. One thing is certain, though: Oh Il-nam is passing away. O Yeong-su describes how the protagonist, Seong Gi-hun, will be impacted by his death in season 2.
“I think Seong Gi-hun will be deeply aware of Oh Il-nam right now. And I believe Il-nam helped Gi-hun grow personally. In Season 2, I believe that will have an effect on his outlook on life and his interpersonal interactions. The first season of Squid Game, in my opinion, was primarily about the events that transpired to Gi-Hun and the outside forces that influenced his life. However, the focus of Season 2 will be more on how he defines himself and views the world.
O Yeong-performance su’s in Squid Game has subsequently earned him a Golden Globe and an Emmy nomination, and it’s safe to assume that Hwang Dong-hyuk is racking his brains for a means to bring him back. A flashback or another fake-out might be forthcoming.
Netflix formally renewed Squid Game Season 2 last month.
Now that Netflix has renewed Squid Game for a second season, it is official that the game show will return. While the specifics of the plot are currently unknown (although it has been claimed that the series may centre on the enigmatic Front Man), creator Hwang Dong-hyuk is already hard at work developing another tale that will undoubtedly shock and thrill viewers in equal measure. And it will be a plot that naturally develops from Squid Game Season 1, with Dong-hyuk attempting to carry on Seong Gi-saga hun’s without regard to audience expectations.
