Squid Game Season 2 Plot Hinted by Lee Jung-jae
Just months ago, Netflix confirmed the renewal status of their popular TV series titled ‘Squid Game’. It is definitely a unique South Korean survival series, which is why many fans have been wondering what the Squid Game season 2 plot would be. The main actor Lee Jung-jae (also known as Player 456) just recently gave us a couple of hints about season 2!
Squid Game TV Series
It seems to me that the global pandemic has brought one good thing to the world – and that is more non-English TV series! With the rise of Korean, Spanish, Swedish, and German TV series, the diversity in cinematography is increasing by the day.
One of the great shows that emerged during the pandemic is ‘Squid Game’. This Netflix original show follows a group of players that are caught in a lethal game. In order to survive, South Korean players must complete several (literally impossible) tasks. The goal is clear – you either finish the task perfectly, or you die. This lethal game introduced players with dark backgrounds – such as people with gambling addictions.

Lee Jung-jae’s hints for the Squid Game Season 2 Plot
In a recent interview with GQ, Lee Jung-jae gave us quite a few hints as to what the ‘Squid Game’ season 2 plot revolve around in the future. Namely, the creators might reveal the gruesome side of the show’s protagonist, Gi Hun.
Lee Jung-jae portrayed Gi Hun in season 1 of ‘Squid Game’. Gi Hun (player 456) participated in the game in order to settle his money debts which were a result of gambling. ‘Squid Game’ Season 2 plot will reflect on Gi Hun’s return to real life after the game ended.
The actor showed excitement when it came to the season 1 finale. Moreover, he hinted towards the upcoming episodes, saying the fans will be able to see Gi Hun’s vengeance. This news, combined with the season 1 finale, offers an amazing plotline for season 2. As season 1 wrapped, it showed Gi Hun’s dark desire to destroy the lethal game.
Lee Jung-jae also explained how we are about to see 456’s growth as a responsible and understanding human being, rather than the pretentious wealthy man he was in season 1. Though his goal is to ultimately destroy the game, it might take a lot of sacrifices for Gi Hun.
Lee Jung-jae about ‘Squid Game’
“I feel like Squid Game isn’t solely meant to provide a social message to society. Ultimately, it’s meant to deliver dreams and hopes to the audience. Of course, it was a fun television show that helped us ask deep questions, but at the end of the day, it’s also entertainment.”
