The squid game boss explains the dramatic hair transformation of the last character
Squid Game writer-director Hwang Dong-hyuk explains why Seong Gi-hun changed his hair in the final.
As fans of Netflix’s latest episode will realize, Gay-hoon (Lee Jung-jai) was dealt a devastating blow after managing to get him out of the game, as he returned home when his poor mother fell to the ground.
Speaking to RadioTimes.com recently, Hwang confirmed that Gi-hoon’s red is not actually a symbol of being a guard in a possible second season, as some fans had suggested, but it was an expression of his “anger.”
“[Gi-hoon’s red hair] shows that he will never be able to go back to his old nature. It is also a sign of his anger,” he commented.
Even before the final episode turns black, spectators of the squid game are witnessing a determination to expose those responsible for running the sassy game – walking on a jet bridge as opposed to going on a plane to reconnect with his daughter in the United States.
Hwang, meanwhile, has also revealed that he initially introduced the concept of brutal drama several days ago.
“I came up with what game to use in the story about 10 years ago,” he shared. “And in the beginning, there was the red light, the green light game that had a big impact with the shocking mass deaths.
“I thought it was a children’s game, as well as a show of frustration for the players, by the players using fighting-like shapes, which make up a ring.”
