Could This Character Return in 'Squid Game' Season 2? What's Going On With the Guards?


Fans are excitedly awaiting Season 2 of Netflix‘s hit series, Squid Game. With production set for 2023, viewers are now wondering who might be taking over to tell the tale for the follow-up season.

Keep reading to find out more…

As we know, at the end of Season 1, it was revealed that the Front Man was Hwang In-ho, the ex-cop brother of Hwang Jun-ho.

While Jun-ho assumed that his brother died competing in the Squid Game, it turned out that In-ho had won in the past. And after winning, he became the right-hand man for the creator of the game, leading the masked guards. His story, however, is largely a mystery.

Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk addressed the Front Man and Season 2 in an interview with Forbes.

He revealed that he would like to explore In-ho‘s police background.

“I think the issue with police officers is not just an issue in Korea.” he said.

“I see it on the global news. This was an issue that I wanted to raise. Maybe in season two, I can talk about this more,” He added.

Screen Rant speculates that because The Game preys on those desperate for money, the guards might be disgraced cops given the opportunity to regain a sense of power.

It would also explain why they’re already trained with weapons, and seemingly unaffected by violence.

Fans also theorized that the blue or red tile game that Gi-hun played before entering the Games might have determined whether he’d be a player or soldier, but the creator addressed that, saying audiences were “definitely more creative” than him, and that no matter which tile Gi-hun had chosen, he would have ended up a contestant in the Squid Game if he called the number.

There’s also a theory Gi-hun will return, agreeing to participate a guard this time, perhaps to try and end the Games once and for all. We’ll have to see what happens!

In the meantime, find out what’s happening with Netflix’s real-life Squid Game reality TV show.
