On this day, director Hwang Dong Hyuk said, "I hope that works like 'Squid Game' have opened the door to some degree.” Lastly, Hwang Dong Hyuk said about his next film, 'Killing Old People Club', "For this project and future projects, we have to consider political polarization, cultural differences, the current environmental and climate change. I will continue to observe and criticize these themes in the future and incorporate them into my work.”
On the other hand, Park Hae Soo talked about his character, "He is a character that can be seen in everyday life," and said, "I approached the character without thinking of him as a villain from the beginning. Rather, he was a person who was influenced by the situation and environment he was in."
