Thoughts on squid drama
If you’re not familiar with squid, here’s what it is: a cross between chess and Go that involves three players who try to corner their opponents and trap them within designated zones of a board, which move around and change shape as pieces are captured. It sounds confusing but—I swear—it’s really fun. Just watch two professionals play it for about 30 minutes, then give it a shot yourself. You can also watch Heo (who only reached professional level in squid in 2008) practice before his big match with Moon Geun-young, who plays an anonymous ex-prodigy turned housewife, who joined him on set just because she likes squid. And we do too!

Squid drama soundtrack
Despite a huge number of highly anticipated new dramas and movies, most viewers are still waiting for one drama soundtrack in particular – Squid. This JTBC work is directed by PD Lee Chang-min (이창민) of Big and Secret Garden, and stars Heo Sung-tae as its leading man. The hero Jang Deok-su lives a life of gambling at first, but later turns into someone who provides hope to others in need. It was due to his abilities that he became a legend among gamblers.
Is Heo Sung Tae Russian?
The business deal takes a twist when CEO Jang Deok Su (Park Hee Soon) orders his right hand man Kang In Chul (Lee Sun Gyun) to watch over Deok Soo. Can he remain as a loyal company man or will he take advantage of his new situation? We’ll have to wait and see on episode 3, but I’m still leaning towards Kang In Chul being on his way out in order for Heo Tae Suk, who was promoted from adviser in season 1, to step into his role. But with three episodes left I wouldn’t be surprised if we see at least one more new character before all is said and done.: Well, maybe he isn’t Russian…or German.
Who is Jang Deok-Su in Squid Game?
The producers wanted to create a character that had no redeeming qualities. He’s not cool or handsome, but they said he has a unique feel and texture. When I read the script, I tried not to think about what others would say about him because he is someone you really don’t want to be around. My dad asked me why I played such a guy (laugh) They said it was their first time creating a character like Jang Deok-Su who is charismatic and fun when others are around but mean and terrible behind his back. They hope viewers will say I wish there were more scenes with Jang Deok-Su.
