Hwang previously said he wants to make a film first, but he has also mused that the next season of squid game drama could focus on masked antagonist the Front Man.

Director Hwang said, “There will be indeed the 2nd season, It is in my head now. We are currently in the planning stage. I think it’s too early to say when and how the follow-up will come out.”

He continued, “I will promise this. Gi-hun (the main character) will return and do something for the world.”

In particular, Lee Jung-jae, who played the main character Sung Gi-hun, said, “It’s amazing. People just walk by and say, “Hi,” adding, “I don’t know how to respond to all this love. It’s very cool to be able to meet fans who love and watch this drama so much.”+

Squid game season 2 Storyline

I’d like to explore that storyline — what is going on between those two brothers? And then I could also go into the story of that recruiter in the suit who plays the game of ddakji with Gi-hun and gives him the card in the first episode. And, of course, we could go with Gi-hun’s story as he turns back, and explore more about how he’s going to navigate through his reckoning with the people who are designing the games.

The 2nd season of squid game could actually be a prequel and highlight the backstory of the Frontman, his history as a police officer. 

As Hwang previously told The Sunday Times, “I think the issue with police officers is not just an issue in Korea. I see it on the global news that the police force can be very late on acting on things—there are more victims or a situation gets worse because of them not acting fast enough. This was an issue that I wanted to raise. Maybe in Season Two I can talk about this more.”

Remembering the end of Squid Game’s first season, despite the death of the Squid Game’s creator Oh Il Nam, Gi-hun discovers that the competition is still going on with the new recruits. It would be safe to say that the story might continue with Gi Hun back to the games, doing all he can to stop the game or beat the VIP and Front man together.

However, It’s also hard to imagine how Gi-hun could possibly defeat the VIP’s, frontman and all his pioneers, even with his wealth.

Hwang told Variety and The Times, “I wanted to write a story that was an allegory or fable about modern capitalist society, something that depicts an extreme competition, somewhat like the extreme competition of life. But I wanted it to use the kind of characters we’ve all met in real life. We’re just all focused on winning. I wanted to take a break and think about who makes the system, and what we’re moving towards.”

Hwang also told The Times, “While I was writing season one, I thought about the stories that could be in season two if I get to do one – one would be the story of the Frontman. I think the issue with police officers is not just an issue in Korea. I see it on the global news that the police force can be very late on acting on things – there are more victims or a situation gets worse because of them not acting fast enough. This was an issue that I wanted to raise. Maybe in season two I can talk about this more.”

So it seems that the intersection of power, social control and law enforcement is a topic Hwang considers worthwhile. The Frontman himself wasn’t a police officer, but his brother was.

Actor Wi Ha-Jun, who plays officer Hwang Jun-ho, told Deadline: “I’m dying to know what happened to him [Jun-ho]. I want him to return alive, find his brother and ask him tons of questions. As a brother, I would ask him sincerely as a detective, I want to explore the overall secrets behind the game as well.

“I really hope to see Jun-ho come back alive and explore all these questions, I hope to see a more brotherly-love side of their relationship as well.”

The police character was a great character to open up the behind the scenes of the games. Hopefully Hwang Dong hyuk will find a way to keep him alive and investigate the origin of the games, or at least his brother’s part in it.

Many questioned about the frontman, ‘if his brother was a former winner of the Squid Game tournament, how did no one in his family notice that he’d suddenly become very rich? And why did Jun-ho find his mysterious disappearance so late, years after he became the frontman?

Theory about Oh Il Nam as Gi Hun's Father

The theory goes that Oh Il nam, in fact, is the father of Gi hun. Think about it: Gi hun never mentions his own father and the first hint when Il nam says to Gi hun: “I’m willing to bet you got spanked a lot. My son did too. He was just like you, friend.”

Especially when you consider the occasion when he gave him his dry jacket in exchange for Gi hun’s, which was covering his pee. This Jacket used to protect him from the soldiers death sentence as the creator, no one would shoot 001, he gave it to Gi hun to make sure he will keep alive even if he lost the next game.

Other than that, during the marble game street scene, He said, “You know, when I was a kid? I lived in a neighborhood just like this.” When Gi Hun replied, “So did I. And you know what? Our alleyway looked very similar.”

He also invite Gi hun to come to his home before his last breath and play once again with Gi Hun. He even share everything he knows about the game and the reason behind it. He told him to live a good life free from regret and thank Gi Hun for letting him feel the happiness he used to felt before.
