Mr. Hwang was already brewing ideas for Season 2 while diligently crafting the script for Season 1, which likely contributed to the immense success of the initial installment. This foresight left certain aspects enigmatic and unresolved in the first season, promising intriguing developments in the upcoming second season.
Squid Game Season 1 Ending Explained
Squid Game” is an emotionally grueling series, but perhaps no episode is more devastating than episode 6, “Gganbu.” The fourth round, in which participants play marbles in pairs, looks unremarkable after “Red Light, Green Light” and “Tug-of-War.” But after being told to find a “partner,” the players are horrified to learn that they’ll be competing against each other, and only one person from each pair can survive.
The setup throws all the characters off balance. After no one else wants a girl on their “team,” stoic, independent loner Sae-byeok (Jung Ho-yeon) is paired with the equally inscrutable Ji-yeong (Lee Yoo-mi), and the two can finally let their guard down, knowing that either they or the person they just confided in will die by the end of the round. Since violence is forbidden, Deok-su’s power and fighting talents are useless. When his partner, Ali (Anupam Tripathi), nearly wins, Sang-woo must get his hands dirty.
Sang-woo enters the games as a mercenary, aiming to win at all costs. “Squid Game” portrays Sang-woo as a villain for stealing Ali’s marbles and murdering a helpless Sae-byeok, but his motives are more nuanced.
Gi-hun is excited to see a familiar face at the games, but Sang-woo, who didn’t expect any “real life” players, is cold and distant. As the games go on, Gi-hun’s persistence in telling all the other players about Sang-woo’s accomplishments and his revered status in their hometown only serves to harden Sang-woo’s resolve. Because ultimately he is playing the game not for himself, but for his mother.
