On Tuesday, Hwang rhetorically asked, “Have you seen ‘Space Jam 2’?” in an interview with the Guardian. — a dig at the critically panned “Space Jam” live-action/animated sequel starring James. Gwanghwamun believes LeBron James can say whatever he wants, but it doesn’t mean that he would change his show’s ending because that’s how he likes it.
On the same day that an Orange County Register reporter recorded and shared James’ post-press-conference exchange with Lakers teammate Anthony Davis, the latter said he finished “Squid Game,” but didn’t like the final scene in which protagonist Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-Jae) refuses to board a plane for his daughter in the US and instead heads to the airport to try to find out who organized the deadly game. LeBron James claims he would have much preferred the protagonist to see his daughter.
According to Hwang, if the “Squid Game” has a conclusion that “satisfies” James, “maybe he might develop his sequel,” as reported by the Guardian. Maybe I’ll send him an email saying, ‘I liked your whole show, except for the finish.'”
James continued the sham feud by mockingly disbelieving Hwang’s statements on Twitter. “this can’t be real, right?!!” “I hope not,” King James wrote on Twitter, adding 10 laughing emojis to convey his hopelessness.
Squid Game’s Season 2 has yet to be ordered by Netflix, but it appears all but guaranteed. According to the streamer’s statistic, the sitcom has surpassed all previous Netflix records for most households accessing a given title for at least two minutes. It’s a new record for the firm to say that “Squid Game” was sampled in the first four weeks by 142 million member households or approximately two-thirds of all members. There is no independent verification of Netflix’s measurements.)
According to Hwang’s comments to the Guardian, a second season of “Squid Game” has already been discussed with Netflix.
Hawg explains that there is a talk about season 2 as season 1 has been an enormous success. His vision is broad, and he won’t start working on it immediately. He has some ideas for a movie, so he’s torn on what to start first: the movie or season 2 of squid game? He’s still discussing with Netflix his plans.
Netflix paid $21.4 million for “Squid Game,” a nine-episode South Korean thriller with an estimated “impact value” of $891 million. According to leaked Netflix data to Bloomberg, this is the case. Netflix terminated another staffer who acknowledged downloading and sharing the material because they were outraged over Netflix’s defence of controversial special “The Closer,” in which comedian Dave Chappelle made transphobic remarks, among other things.
For 45.6 billion won (about $38.5 million) on the line in the “Squid Game,” 456 indebted competitors compete in a lethal competition pitting them against each other in a series of children’s games.
It was Hwang’s intention, he added, to bring attention to the growing disparity between the rich and the rest of us in the modern world. In an interview with Variety last month, he said, “I wanted to write a story that was an allegory or fable about current capitalist society, something that represents an extreme competition, much like the severe competition of life.
