Director Hwang Dong-hyuk to create satirical comedy on the success of his hit series ‘Squid Game’

  • “Squid Game” creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has revealed that he’s coming out with another satirical show based on the success of his 2021 global phenomenon.
  • Titled “The Best Show on the Planet,” the comedy is one of three projects that Hwang is currently working on, with the others being a “violent” film inspired by the works of Umberto Eco and Season 2 of “Squid Game.”

“Squid Game,” a satirical show that became a global phenomenon last year, is becoming the subject of another satirical show exploring its overnight success. Director Hwang Dong-hyuk, the mastermind behind the 2021 Netflix hit, said he is in the early stages of development for the meta-satire production. 

Hwang told Deadline that the project, provisionally titled “The Best Show on the Planet,” is still too young to have the details configured. All he revealed was that it’s a satirical comedy based on his own experiences of being catapulted into international stardom when “Squid Game” took over the world.
