Lee Jung-jae has become a popular name across the world with his performance in the rapidly getting popular South Korean web series ‘Squid Game’, yet the actor, in a recent interview revealed, he hasn’t received any offers from Hollywood.
"No proposals or requests have come my way. But, if the right one came along, I'd be happy to be in an overseas production. It could be fun," he said, in an interview with Variety.
The success of show’s creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk, was the primary reason why Jung-jae accepted to be a part of the show.
"(Hwang's) success comes from being very detailed about explaining the characters, their roles and their feelings. Sadness wears many different faces and (in 'Squid Game') the characters' different sadnesses can easily be felt by viewers," he said.
"(Hwang) is very capable of building characters from the ground upwards, which is why when the characters have to take big decisions, they are believable. And it is why the audience is willing to believe in the show's climactic ending. It is actually touching," he added.
'Squid Game' became the most watched series on Netflix recently.
