HoYeon Jung (better known as Sae-byeok) has claimed that she will not be returning in Season 2 of the Korean series: Squid Game. Rumors are rife at the moment, regarding “Squid Game”. HoYeon Jung, who plays Sae-byeok in the series, has also just put an end to speculation concerning her return in season 2.
Squid Game Season 2 Is Unofficially On The Cards
We agree Netflix has still not officially released statements regarding season 2 of “Squid Game”. However, during an interview with the Associated Press agency, the creator-director Hwang Dong-hyuk suggested that he had no choice but to make a sequel.
“There was so much pressure, so many requests for a second season, so I almost feel like you are leaving us no choice!”, he said in front of the cameras.
HoYeon Jung Is Not Returning For Season 2
Many fans, who have seen season 1 of “Squid Game”, wonder if Sae-byeok will make a comeback in season 2. It must be said that they liked her acting. Statements like “we all crush Sae-Byeok (HoYeon Jung) in Squid Game.”,”Sae-Byeok in Squid Game is just amazing!”, can be often read on Twitter and other social media platforms. The fans of the South Korean drama have been showering love over the actress, but there’s something you need to know.
That is to say, HoYeon Jung (the interpreter of Sae-byeok) did not expect such a success that she could not eat anymore and that she was constantly stressed when it happened.
But back on topic. As for the actress’s return to the show, the answer is “no”. HoYeon Jung herself would have confirmed this information during a conversation with Screen Rant. Let’s not forget, however, that player 067 came in third place in “Squid Game”. As the latter was about to succumb to her injuries, Sang Woo stabbed her. Viewers saw her die on screen. What’s more, they saw the guards picking up his remains.
Bringing her back could cause those who watch the series to misunderstand. Something tells us that the director doesn’t want to take that risk. Even if it means doing a season 2, we are sure that he prefers to surf the success of Squid Game as long as possible.
Moreover, given the making criteria of the director, it is hard to say but there’s no chance any dead character will make a return in Squid Game Season 2. The only dead character that might return is Player 001, that too in flashback scenes.
