Can ‘Squid Game’ Season 2 Replicate the Addictive Quality of Season 1?
By Brandon Yu (Mic)

The article talks about the second season of ‘Squid Game’, the most popular Netflix show at the moment, which was announced by director Hwang Dong-hyuk a few days ago in an interview.

It’s good that the article is not very long. However, for the information that it contains, it’s still too long, in my opinion. Other than the fact that there will be a second season, the article didn’t seem interesting to me personally. It provides some background on Season 1 that I feel has been addressed in a lot of other articles before and some speculations about Season 2.
In general, though, I think the topic is news-worthy because Squid Game brought a huge hype lately and thousands of people are waiting for a second season, and the announcement was made recently.
The article is not that easy to read as a big part of today’s audience would want it today. The sentences are too complex, and the paragraphs are too long.
Another aspect I liked was that the author included some quotes by the director and that there is a link to a video of the announcement.

    Your feature ideas are fine. I’d be curious about “die-hard ” fans. My wife watched it, so I saw bits and pieces. I’ve also seen quite a bit in the news about how violent it is. What does that say about viewers? What does that say about the filmmakers? How will season 2 top itself?

    I’d also be curious about how the average South Korean citizen feels about the show, since it supposedly is a critique of life there.
