Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk is teasing out details of Season 2 of the Netflix smash hit.
He told Deadline on the red carpet at the Emmys on Monday that Lee Jung Jae’s character Seong Gi-hun, otherwise known as Number 456, is seeking revenge in the upcoming season.

Hwang said that the biggest change will be that he comes back with a different character, more serious.
At the end of the first season, Lee’s Seong Gi-hun, who wins the game, dyes his hair red and is a different man than before he participated in the dystopian game.
The character didn’t touch his prize money for a year and receives an invite to visit the old man, who reveals that he created the game and it’s suggested that he’s going back for more. It feels like revenge is on the cards.
Lee Jung Jae himself told Deadline that he hasn’t seen a script.
In June, Netflix officially confirmed the second season, saying that Gi-Hun and the frontman will return, the man in the suit ddakji might be back and viewers will be introduced to Young-hee’s boyfriend, Cheol-su.
