The director of the Squid Game, which has sparked a massive hysteria that hasn't seemed to have happened since Game of Thrones, Hwang Dong Hyuk admitted that he was torn between the two endings for the first season. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he stated that viewers might have seen a very different ending (beware: spoilers!).

The series ends with the fact that in the last episode, the hero Lee Jong Jae decides to stay and take revenge on the creators of the cruel game that took the lives of thousands of people, instead of going to his daughter.

We constantly asked ourselves: Was it really the right decision for Ki Hoon to leave and see his family in order to achieve his own happiness? Is this the right way for us to convey the meaning of what we wanted to convey through the show?

– he said.

He added that the question of why the world ended up where it is would remain unanswered if the main character flew away. Therefore, the ending turned out to be so ambiguous.

In addition, the open ending clearly hinted at a continuation. And this news has recently been confirmed – the series will be renewed for a second season.

The Squid Game is about a group of people who participate in a survival game. It consists of six children's competitions, after the end of which only one participant must remain alive. In the final, the winner will receive a cash prize, which multiplies as the game progresses as the competitors die one after another.
