Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk expresses his thoughts about basketball star LeBron James’ critique of the popular Netflix series.
On October 12 at a news conference, LeBron James was overheard discussing Squid Game and its finale with his teammate, Anthony Davis.
“Yeah, I didn’t like the ending though,” James said. “I know they start it off with a season two but, like, get on the f–king flight, go see your daughter, bro. Like, what are you doing?”
Now, Hwang is sharing his response in an interview with The Guardian. “Have you seen Space Jam 2?” he asked, citing the animated sports movie starring James. “LeBron James is cool and can say what he wants. I respect that. I’m very thankful he watched the whole series.”
He continued, “But I wouldn’t change my ending. That’s my ending. If he has the ending that would satisfy him, maybe he could make his sequel. I’ll check it out and maybe send him a message saying, ‘I liked your whole show, except the ending.’”
And it looks like James caught wind of his remarks. “This can’t be real right??!!” he tweeted along with a series of laughing emojis. “I hope not.”
Squid Game which is a terrifying twist on a childhood favourite has characters played by Lee Jung-Jae, Park Hae-soo, Jung Ho-Yeon, O Yeong-us, Heo Sung-Tae among others.
“All of you in this room are living on the edge,” a masked man instructs the group early on, “with debts you cannot pay off.” While the participants are told they can opt-out of the experience, they are assured that billions will be awarded to the winner.
Although Squid Game has become an instant hit on Netflix, Hwang told The Guardian he isn’t sure if there will be a season two.
