Squid Game Season 2 Cast: Who’s In It?
You shouldn’t expect to see too many familiar faces for season 2 of Squid Game, given the nature of the series. All 456 of the competitors in the first season died, except one.
The only person you can count on is Seong Gi-hun’s return – played by Lee Jungjae – who was tempted back into the game after seeing another participant in the mega-millions death/life game.
Lee is the only cast member who can be debated. Most of the cast has met their maker. Former actors, including Park Hae-soo and Oh Yeong-su, could make a comeback. However, it would be limited to flashbacks.
Hwang (The Fortress) wrote and directed all nine episodes of season 1 of Squid Game, while the cast features Lee Jung-jae (Chief of Staff), Park Hae-soo (Yungnyong-i Nareusya), Yeong-su Oh (The Great Queen Seondeok), Wi Ha-Joon (The Greatest Divorce), fashion model Jung Ho-yeon, Heo Sung-tae (Your Honor), Anupam Tripathi and Joo-ryeong Kim.
