But despite masterminding the global phenomenon, Hwang has claimed he isn’t that rich, partly because Netflix didn’t pay him a bonus.

“But I do have enough, I have enough to put food on the table,” the 50-year-old told the 监护人.

“And it’s not like Netflix is paying me a bonus. Netflix paid me according to the original contract.”

The Wall Street Journal had previously reported that Hwang had to stop writing the script of the South Korean series at one point to sell his laptop for £500 in cash.

当时, he was living with his mother and grandmother and struggling financially.

The nine-episode thriller, in which cash-strapped contestants play childhood games with deadly consequences in a bid to win 45.6bn won (£52m), became an international hit when it launched last month.

Since its overwhelming success, Hwang has remained tight-lipped about a second seasonuntil now.

In a recent interview, Hwang teased: “There are some other stories in the series that have not been addressed.

“I’ll just say, there are a lot of possibilities out there for season two storylines.”

Squid Game is available to stream on Netflix.
