However, some Korean and overseas viewers wondered, “No girls cast?”, “Why are there no women?”, etc. While Season 1 featured numerous actresses, such as Jung Ho Yeon, Kim Joo Ryung, and Lee Yoo Mi, only actors were revealed in the Season 2 casting video this time. One netizen guessed, “There should be female casts. Additional casts are likely to be announced soon.”

Released in 2021, “Squid Game” depicts the story of people struggling in survival games to win the prize of 45.6 billion won and gained huge love from global viewers.
