After breaking records with “Squid Game,” director Hwang Dong-hyuk has his work cut out for him making the second season equally interesting.

However, it appears that the “Squid Game” director is pretty busy these days and it is not entirely about the South Korean survival drama TV series.

In a report from Variety, Hwang  was speaking during a session at MipTV and shared that he was working on an adaptation of the novel, “Killing Old People Club.”

The book is written by Umberto Eco and Hwang has allegedly already written a 35-page treatment for the film which will reportedly be also controversial.

Considering the work that Hwang did on “Squid Game,” the “Killing Old People Club” should be interesting. The film will reportedly be more violent than the Netflix flick, something that is expected to spur interest this early.

As for season 2 of “Squid Game,” it has yet to be announced when it will come out. But it appears that one of the main figures, Gi-hun, will be a character to watch. Hwang hints that Gi-hun is likely to use the lessons he learned from the first season and use them more actively in “Squid Games” season 2, EW reported.

"I'm not really in the right place to be discussing season 2 in an official setting, but if there were to be a season 2, in the first season that we saw Gi-hun is a character whose humanity is shown through or exposed in certain situations," Hwang said. "In other words, his humanity is shown through a very passive manner. But I would think that in the second season, what he has learned from the games and his experience in the first season, they will all be put to use in a more active manner."

It appears there is a lot to expect with Hwang also hinting that Gi-hun will be going through a point where he will be put to a critical test.
