South Korean actor Wi Ha-jun, who plays detective Jun-ho in "Squid Game," has opened up about his character's fate and shared his excitement for the Season 2 of the hit Korean series.

In the show, 456 debt-straddled people are brought to a mysterious island after agreeing to join a children's game where they can win a huge cash prize. However, they are surprised to learn that those who get eliminated from the game actually get executed.

The detective pretends to be a guard on the island in hopes of finding his missing brother and unveiling the people behind the deadly game. 

Speaking with Deadline Tuesday, the actor revealed he's looking forward for his character to return for the next season.

"I'm dying to know what happened to him. I want him to return alive, find his brother and ask him tons of questions," he told the outlet. "As a brother, I would ask him sincerely."

At the end of Season 1, the detective finds out his brother is actually the Front Man, the masked person who has been helping the game's mastermind. The Front Man ends up shooting him and letting him fall into the water. It remains unclear whether he'll be able to survive or not. But as expected, theories about what will happen to him next have been rife online.

During the interview, Wi shared that as a detective in the series, he wants to "explore the overall secrets behind the game as well."

"I really hope to see Jun-ho come back alive and explore all these questions. I hope to see a more brotherly-love side of their relationship as well," he said further.

The 30-year-old actor also spoke about the series' success in South Korea. He admitted "Squid Game" is also well-received in his home country, similar to how the rest of the world has embraced it.

"I think the reception is quite the same in Korea," he told Deadline. "When I go on set for my new role, I get inundated with questions about my character's fate or if they can get props from the show like the guards' masks."

According to the actor, he's also aware that many people are considering wearing pink jumpsuits and green tracksuits, like what the characters don in the series.

"Squid Game" is now officially the biggest original series launch of Netflix as per Variety. It has been seen by the platform's 111 million members from all over the world since its Sept. 17 release, surpassing the record previously held by "Bridgerton."

As of now, there is no official announcement yet regarding its second season.
