Squid Game's Lee Jung-jae Talks Season 2 Ideas & Reacts to a Reporter's Controversial Question

Lee Jung-jae, the star of the hit Netflix series Squid Game, is opening up about plans for the second season and he also reacted to a controversial question from a reporter.

The 48-year-old actor plays Gi-hun and he has some ideas of where the character will go in season two.

Lee said, “Because Gi-hun became more serious because he has to rescue these people, I’m thinking that he would become a more determined character. But if he’s just too determined, that could be a little bit boring. So I’m guessing the fun parts of Gi-hun will also come out in the next season.”

During a recent red carpet appearance, Lee was asked, “I’m sure you can’t leave the house anymore without people recognizing you. What has been the biggest life change for you since the series came out?” The clip went viral and people criticized the reporter because he was already a giant star in Korea, well before the launch of Squid Game.

“I wasn’t offended at all,” he said. “They just didn’t have the opportunity to see a Korean movie, see a Korean TV series. I don’t think it’s something that we should criticize her for. And just the fact that a lot of people haven’t watched Korean TV series prior to Squid Game, it’s just another push for us to work harder so that we can have the next Squid Game. So I would never say, ‘Why don’t you know that I have been a star all along?’”
