Hwang continued, 'I’m very thankful he watched the whole series. But I wouldn’t change my ending.'

'That’s my ending. If he has his own ending that would satisfy him, maybe he could make his own sequel.'

'I’ll check it out and maybe send him a message saying, ‘I liked your whole show, except the ending.’'

Fans would love a second season, but Hwang doesn't know yet if they'll be doing one.

He said, 'Of course there is talk. That’s inevitable because it’s been such a success. I am considering it.'

'I have a very high-level picture in my mind, but I’m not going to work on it straight away.'

'There’s a film I really want to make. I’m thinking about which to do first. I’m going to talk to Netflix.'

Squid Game is streaming on Netflix now.
