The creator of Netflix’s popular Korean drama Squid Game has reacted to the controversy surrounding the upcoming reality show where real people will take part in challenges until only one remains.
Hwang Dong-hyuk told Entertainment Weekly that he spoke with Squid Game: The Challenge’s creator and is hopeful that the program can faithfully adapt the main show.
“Yes, I am aware of the reality show being created,” Hwang said. “I actually met with the creator yesterday, and they had many questions for me. What I hope is that they will be carrying on my vision and intention as much as possible for the show.”
