The final scene of Squid Game raised a lot of questions: why doesn’t Gi-hun get on the plane? We have the explanation!
In an interview with THR, Hwang Dong-hyuk offers us details on a potential season 2 of Squid Game, which inspired him to create such a show and explains the final scene. After winning the 45.6 million won, Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) returns home and finds his mother dead. A year after his victory, as he leaves for the airport, Gi-hun falls on the man with whom he played in the subway playing the same game with another man we imagine obviously in debt. Gi-hun manages to recover the business card and in the hallway to get on the plane he decides to call the number written on it. Following this call, he turns around and does not leave as he had planned. So why did he decide to stay in Korea? This is the big question that all the fans have asked themselves.
Hwang Dong-huyk says for THR: “Season 1 ends with Gi-hun turning around and not taking a plane to the States. And that was, in fact, my way of getting the message across not to be. get caught up in the competitive flow of society, but you have to start thinking about who made the whole system – and if there’s a possibility for you to turn around and face it. isn’t necessarily Gi-hun coming back for revenge. It could actually be interpreted as very direct eye contact with what’s really going on in the whole painting. So I thought it would be. a good, simple but ambiguous way to end the story for Gi-hun. “ Gi-hun is therefore not necessarily seeking revenge, although this door is not completely closed. Squid Game, which has just broken a planetary record on Netflix, is a series full of hidden messages and seems to be able to surprise us again.
