Squid Game took over Netflix and caused millions to binge-watch the graphic, yet pleasing series. The South Korean series immediately rose to the top of Netflix’s most-watched list. People were so hooked with it that there have already been some real-life – and far less lethal – adaptations of the games.
The actors of “Squid Game” indicated a possible resurrection for some of the series’ characters in Season 2 on the red carpet at the SAG Awards. According to Variety, Lee Jung-jae (who portrayed the series protagonist, Seong Gi-hun) teased the remark through a translator at Variety On the Carpet presented by DIRECTV.
After we filmed Squid Game Season 1, we all got together brainstorming ideas for how to bring everybody back alive. My idea is the masked men carry all of them out as quickly as possible and do a surgery on them to keep them alive.
Netflix renewed the South Korean drama for a second season in late January, and it has already made history. The global smash became the first non-English and Korean show to gain a SAG Award nomination for outstanding ensemble in a drama series, in addition to becoming the streamer’s most-watched TV show of all time, with 1.65 billion streaming hours in the first 28 days of its premiere.
Lee won for male actor in a leading role, while Jung Ho-yeon (“Squid Game’s” Kang Sae-byeok) won for female actor in a leading role, kicking off the night for the show. “Squid Game” also won for finest stunt ensemble in a television series, which was one of the night’s first revealed prizes.
