Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk is undoubtedly paying huge mind to the success of his hit series on Netflix since last Fall, as the latest report from Variety confirms he’s penning the second season for a 2024 launch following January’s announcement.
At some point earlier on, an international trailer was unveiled for Hwang Dong-Hyuk’s new period war drama, Namhansangseon. Of course it helps now that its new title is The Fortress for said internarional appeal and while a date is still yet to be set, the latest trailer has arrived – Korean subbed, but plenty of excellent footage to delve into with Hwang’s fourth movie.
I’m almost certain director Hwang Dong-Hyuk’s new period drama, Namhansangseon, will be re-titled with a more international appeal by its September theatrical release. Until then, that’s the name of the film as it so reads on author Kim Hoon’s 2007 Hakgojae novel publication, set amid the warring 17th century Joseon era.
