The “Squid Game” hype is still going on! The show inventor reveals why the main character suddenly has red hair!
The Korea hit on Netflix is still THE topic of conversation among serial junkies. And now the nine-part is even the most successful format of all time for the streaming giant.
Even the smallest details are discussed in internet forums. For example, the question of why the character Seong Gi-hun with starting number 456 (played by Lee Jung-jae) suddenly dyes his hair red at the end of the season.
In an interview with the Korean tabloid portal “Zapzee”, the director and inventor of the series, Hwang Dong-hyuk, said: “I thought about it for a long time.”
“I’ve been thinking about how Gi-hun should get his hair cut in a hair salon. I imagined myself to be him. And I thought to myself: which color would you never choose to dye your hair? “, Says the genius behind” Squid Game “.
He came to the conclusion that he and thus the main actor would never dye their hair red. “So I chose this color and thought: It really shows his inner anger.”
The red hair is therefore an expression of the irrepressible anger, the starting number 456 after – Warning, spoilers! – the win of the jackpot and the associated death of a number of other players.
Hwang Dong-hyuk had recently taken a position on this, too, and emphasized that he could not imagine a second season.
However, Jung Ho-yeon (plays number 067) recently gossiped in an interview and said : “To be honest, I never thought about doing the next season because I’m dead.”
When considering whether the “octopus game” can continue, in the end, however, primarily financial aspects should play a role. With THAT success, Netflix can’t actually avoid a sequel …
