Few series today are as anticipated as the second season of the squid game. Netflix knows that it has a golden opportunity for this franchise to become its next banner, and they are not going to miss it. But beyond the enormous investment that the new episodes will surely receive, what can we expect in the narrative field? What will Seong Gi-hun do after the events of season 1?
Fortunately, Lee Jung-jae, the actor who rose to worldwide fame for his role in the squid gamehas come out to reveal new details of the second season.
But before continuing, it is necessary to remember how the story of 2021 ended. Seong Gi-hun, despite winning the games, was badly affected by what happened in the atrocious competitions. Most of them died, saving him and the old man 001, who in the end turned out to be the owner of the Squid Games.
Although everything indicated that Gi-hun would try to resume a normal life, the character’s plot took a turn—literally—at the last minute and, instead of taking a plane to visit his daughter, he decided to return. for what reason? take revenge, most likely. His annoyed face revealed his intention to make those who made him and hundreds of other players suffer. Let us also remember that the organizer of the competition is still alive.
In an interview with GCLee Jung-jae, anticipated that the second season of the squid game will show us a dark and completely unknown facet of his character. Seong Gi-hu, during the first chapters, was shown as an honest and nice person despite all the problems that surrounded him. But participating in the games changed his life forever.
Gi-hu not only has the steadfast conviction to destroy the games, but now also has the financial potential to navigate his way through some of the many obstacles that lie ahead. However, among those obstacles will also appear some moral dilemmas with which he will have to deal, and the second season of the squid game intends to delve deeper into them.
If he ultimately decides to annihilate everyone involved in the competition, he may not be much different from those unsavory millionaires who enjoyed watching them die. Will it be his thirst for revenge and money that will end up corrupting Gi-hu in the squid gameseason 2? Without a doubt, that possible turn of the character would be very interesting, since it would also cause a moral dilemma in the audience.
Regardless of the outcome of the protagonist, it is a fact that we will see him in a dark facet; maybe at some point turning from hero to villain.
Although the release date of the second season of the squid gameall eyes point to end of 2023 or during the first half of 2024. The reality is that the South Korean production, as well as Netflix, do not want to rush anything, as this could lead to content that does not meet the enormous expectations of the audience. The platform cannot afford to deal the squid game like any franchise.
