Showrunner Teased Plot For Squid Game Season 2!
Squid game director Hwang Dong-Hyuk recently appeared at an online event. While talking about the second season, he said that it is not the right place to discuss it. “Gi-hun is a character whose humanity is shown through or exposed in certain situations,” He continued, “what Gi Hun has learned from the games and his experience in the first season, they will all be put to use in a more active manner.”
Further, he mentioned that the Front Man [Byung-hun] was also a past winner but became a Front Man. “It’s like Darth Vader. Some end up Jedi and some become Darth Vader, right?” he added. So he thinks that maybe Gi-hun will go through a specific critical point where he will be tested in Squid Game Season 2. These statements from the directors have sparked anticipation among the fans. And now, they are hitting their theories all over the internet about the fate of Gi Hun.
What Happened To Gi Hun?
The first season of Squid Game ended with Seong Gi-hun eventually winning the final game. After his childhood friend, Sang-woo killed himself. However, the guilt of fellow participants was heavier for him than the price money. Gi Hun then returned home to find his mother dead. He also completed his promises to Sang Woo and Sae-byeok.
Meanwhile, his daughter has also moved to America with her mother and stepfather. Gi Hun learned about the reality of the games from his ‘Gnabu’ Ill Nam ( Player 1). And he was heartbroken after finding out the truth. While at the airport, Gi Hun saw the same man recruiting a new member for the following games. He decided to expose him so that others do not face what he did. Indicating that, he might try to stand up against the syndicate that organizes games every year in Squid Game Season 2.
