You probably have heard of Squid Game by now. Squid Game started trending on social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Tiktok etc.

Everyone’s talking about it. After watching the first episode, you’ll be hooked right away. Curiosity will make you just binge watch all the episodes.

I won’t get into too much detail to not spoil the show, but will talked about why it’s so popular.

The actors fit their roles perfectly and have interesting stories.

Model and Actress Jung HoYeon 정호연

Model Jung HoYeon 정호연 is one of the actors in the show. She’s a runner up in Korea’s Next Top Model and very popular in Korea. She’s also the global ambassador for the brand Louis Vuitton in 2021.

Jung HoYeon’s experience is mostly modeling. Her very first TV show is Squid Game. She plays as Kang Sae-byeok. Her amazing acting and the role brings worldwide attention to the show.

She is confident in her acting. Have innate ability to stand face to face challenging societal norms. She has a fierce look like a tiger.

Once you watch the show, you’ll be curious and get attached right away to the characters, especially Kang Sae-byeok. She’s definitely a mystery and made the show very interesting.

Actor Lee Jung Jae 이정재

Lee Jung Jae 이정재 is a Korean actor since 1993. He initially started as a model, but then decided to become an actor. Recently, he gained international attention playing as Seong GiHun in Squid Game.

Lee Jung Jae’s the very first character in the show. He lives with his mother and is currently divorced. He spends most of his time gambling and owes a lot of money from loan sharks.

Seong GiHun is the happy type and always has a smile on his face. His main source of joy and happiness is his daughter. He doesn’t have custody of her and she’s his source of motivation to keep moving forward.

Actor O Yeong Su 오영수

O Yeong Su 오영수is probably one of the most likeable character in the show. He just have this smile that brightens everyone’s day.

This character is very mysterious. His number 001 in Squid Game. I haven’t finished the season but I am hoping that he wins the game, which I think is very unlikely based on his age.

How many episode does Squid Game have? And is there Season 2 of Squid Game?

Squid Game has 9 episodes and they each run approximately between 30 – 60 minutes.
Due to it’s popularity, is very likely that there will be a Squid Game Season 2 probably in 2022.
