The creator of “Squid Game”, Hwang Dong-Hyuk, recently revealed that he is in the early stage of development on a new project based on his experience since the release of the said Netflix series.

The Korean director recently sat down with Deadline, and revealed that the show, which currently has the title, “The Best Show on the Planet”, will be a reflection of the overnight success of “Squid Game” and his experience of suddenly being thrust into the limelight.

The project, however, is still in its infant stage.

“I feel like I’ve been swept by the Niagara Falls over the course of the last six months and fallen off a cliff,” said Hwang in the interview, regarding the sudden fame.

On the other hand, in the same interview, Hwang said that he is currently trying his best to work on season 2 of the hit show.

“Season 1’s success has given me an immense amount of pressure and I am having nightmares about the reception for Season 2 not being so good,” he admitted.
