“Squid Game 2” is scheduled to be released later this year.

Netflix raised expectations by announcing that actors Lee Jung-jae, Lee Byung-hun, Kang Ha-neul, Wi Ha-jun, and Lee Jin-wook will appear in Season 2.

Actor Im Si-wan, who recently showed his diverse acting spectrum in the movie “Unlocked” and the drama “Boyhood”, was also announced to be joining the group, and actor Yang Dong-geun, who created a new sensation with the drama “Moving”, was also announced to appear.

In an interview with a media outlet, Im Si-wan said, “When the casting came in, I decided to do it in one second. I liked it so much that I watched all the episodes the day Season 1 was released.”

Actor Park Sung-hoon, who showed the ultimate villain role in the drama “The Glory”, also confirmed his appearance. Actress Park Gyu-young, who appeared in “Celebrity” and “Sweet Home 2” also appears. In addition, news of actors Kang Ae-sim, Lee Da-wit, Won Ji-an, Noh Jae-won, and singer Jo Yu-ri’s appearance was also reported.

Meanwhile, former Big Bang actor Choi Seung-hyun (T.O.P) also joined the cast as an actor. Reactions to this were sharply divided.

In July 2023, SBS quoted an insider from “Squid Game 2” as saying, “T.O.P will appear in ‘Squid Game 2’ as a retired idol who used to be a singer.” According to reports, director Hwang Dong-hyuk looked for an actor who could dance as well as rap for the character, and reportedly chose T.O.P himself.

“Squid Game 2” is strictly kept secret, so no spoilers or behind-the-scenes stories are revealed, raising expectations even further. Officials were surprised when they said, “The production team of ‘Squid Game’ does not deliver the entire script to the actors.”

They explained, “Actors only receive scripts for the parts they appear in as online files, not on paper. In particular, after a certain period of time, the script is created and delivered so that it can no longer be opened after the download deadline.”
