Squid Game Star Lee Jung-jae Answered All Our Burning Questions About the Show
If you haven't heard—or yet commenced your celebrations—today is Lee Jung-jae Day here at Esquire.
Not only did we profile the Squid Game star, where he spoke candidly about the time in his life when he never thought he'd act again, but he also sat down for an episode of "Explain This." In the newest edition of our long-running video series, Lee answers quite possibly every question about Netflix's hit survival horror series, and then some. That means Lee, one of South Korea's biggest stars, talked about (the not-yet-announced, but certainly happening) Season 2, the Dalgona scene, and all of the fan theories you've parsed through on Reddit—as well as the ones you haven't heard yet.
Now, you'll have to watch the full video to feed your Squid Game appetite. If you want a taste, here's what Lee had to say about Saturday Night Live!'s Squid Game parody, where Rami Malek and Pete Davidson hilariously send up the show via rap song: "It was really interesting and they were so great and funny," Lee said. "[Pete Davidson and Rami Malek] almost looked like they were enjoying themselves too. So it made me feel grateful. Right after I watched it, I was also telling my friends to [watch]. I shared the link and all that. It was so, so much fun. Thank you, guys."
