‘Squid Game’ creator to reportedly introduce new game mechanisms for season two
Moonhwa Ilbo reported that the second season of the hit Netflix series will implement a new mechanism for the games named Cheol-su, described to be the “boyfriend” of Young-hee, the iconic giant doll used in the ‘Red Light, Green Light’ game in the first season.Moonhwa Ilbo cited the reason behind the introduction of new mechanisms to creator Hwang Dong-hyuk’s resolve to come up with new games for the upcoming season, who was said to have “put a lot of effort” into devising the games and even “struggled” with selecting the final one.Filming for the hit Netflix series’ much-anticipated second season will begin in 2023, according to Moonhwa Ilbo, with an alleged release window for the new season being sometime at the end of 2024.The publication also reported on alleged new details of Squid Game 2, writing that the first season’s main character, Seong Gi-hoon (played by Lee Jung-jae), will continue to be the second season’s primary focus. Moonhwa Ilbo also alleged that the Frontman (played by Lee Byung-hun), as well as Gong Yoo’s cameo character, will be returning to the show.Reportedly, Squid Game 2 will also feature a new roster of characters, seeing as a majority of the participants and cast were killed off in the first season. However, Moonhwa Ilbo reported that actors Jung Ho-yeon (Kang Sae-byeok on the show) and Wi Ha-joon (detective Hwang Jun-ho) may have appearances in the upcoming sequel.Neither Netflix nor representatives from the Squid Game production team have responded to the reports as of writing.The news comes shortly after the show and its cast took home several historic wins at this year’s Emmy Awards, which were held earlier this week on September 12.

‘Squid Game’ creator responds to concerns about reality show spin-off
Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has addressed concerns around the upcoming reality show based on the Netflix series.Netflix announced plans to adapt the survival drama, which follows contestants who take part in a series of life-threatening games to win a huge cash prize, into a reality show competition back in June.The show, titled Squid Game: The Challenge, will see contestants compete for a cash sum of $4.56million (£3.65million) in a series of games inspired by the show – without the violent stakes.When it was announced, many were quick to highlight that a Squid Game reality show goes against the point of the series – which, as Dong-hyuk has previously described, is a “fable about modern capitalist society”.Speaking backstage at the Emmys on Monday (September 12) about the reality series (via Variety), Dong-hyuk said he’d met with the creators and hoped “that they will be carrying on my vision and intention as much as possible”.“I think that even though our show does carry quite a heavy message – and I know that there are some concerns of taking that message and creating it into a reality show with a cash prize,” Dong-hyuk said.“However, I feel like when you take things too seriously, that’s really not the best way to go for the entertainment industry. It doesn’t really set a great precedent.”He added: “I would say that reproductions of such efforts are going to bring new meaning to the industry, and I hope that this is going to be a great new direction for the industry overall.”Squid Game: The Challenge is a 10-episode series co-produced between Studio Lambert (The Circle) and The Garden, part of ITV Studios, and will be filmed in the UK.

Los Angeles appoints September 17 ‘Squid Game’ Day
Squid Game Day, in recognition of the South Korean Netflix series’ achievements.Korean-American congressman John Lee announced on September 7 that the city council had passed the resolution appointing September 17 as Squid Game Day, per The Korea Times. The Californian city will thus commemorate the Korean drama series every year on September 17, which was the date Squid Game first premiered on Netflix last year.Lee told press that this may be the first time in the United States that a commemoration day is designated for a television series, per The Korea Times. The resolution noted that Squid Game retains its place as the most-watched Netflix original to date, and that “it was the first ever Korean series on Netflix to reach number one in the US, breaking the barrier that many foreign language shows face with Western audiences simply because of subtitles”.It also noted that Squid Game successfully introduced diverse facets of Korean culture not just to audiences in the US but across the globe; it has also done so by receiving nominations and awards at numerous American and international ceremonies alike, largely as the first Korean and first foreign-language series to achieve such feats.“Squid Game marks another victory in the fight to grow representation of the AAPI [Asian American and Pacific Islander] community in film and entertainment, exposing audiences to Korean culture and traditions while paving the way for other AAPI communities to also have their stories told,” the resolution read.According to The Korea Times, a ceremony to celebrate the designation will be held in front of the LA City Hall tomorrow (September 9), and will be attended by LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk, CEO of the
