Wow, when Hong Kong superstar Tony Leung said he’d love to star in a kdrama series just the other day, I didn’t think the drama gods would answer his prayers that soon. However, his wife Carina Lau’s recent post on social media certainly fuelled a lot of speculation regarding a potential role for the actor in Squid Game Season 2.
“Ready for Squid Game?” she teased. The photos accompanying Carina’s post showed Tony in earnest conversation with Squid Game director Hwang Dong Hyuk over a meal together. And if that wasn’t enough of a tease, Carina even tagged the show’s official Instagram handle too. Carina also excitedly shared another set of photos featuring Tony and herself with Hwang Dong Hyuk and his wife, captioning the series “Let’s Play Squid Game!” What do you think are the odds that Tony will indeed appear in the sequel which Korean media reports is scheduled to be released at the end of 2024? Whatever the case, the level of excitement amongst Netizens is very very high.
Tony Leung and Carina Lau were in Seoul recently to attend the 27th Busan International Film Festival where he received the Asian Filmmaker of the Year award for his contributions in advancing Asian film and culture.
