While Dong-hyuk loves the ambiguous ending for Gi-hun, he said he could "explore more about how he’s going to navigate through his reckoning with the people who are designing the games."

Meanwhile, the relationship between Jun-ho and The Front Man is very interesting to Dong-hyuk. He said, "If I end up creating Season 2, I’d like to explore that storyline — what is going on between those two brothers?"
