Hwang Dong-hyuk's Response to LeBron James Not Liking Squid Game's Ending Is Low-Key Savage

Let's be real: the ending to Squid Game was infuriating. Recently, LeBron James was recorded talking to his Lakers teammate Anthony Davis at a press conference about the Netflix series, admitting, "I didn't like the ending, though." James referred to the dramatic conclusion when Seong Gi-Hun (Lee Jung-jae) was supposed to fly to the US to reunite with his daughter after winning the prize money, saying, "I know they start it off with a season two, but like, get on the f*cking flight and go see your daughter, bro. Like what are you doing?"

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk responded to James's comments in an interview with The Guardian on Tuesday, and oof! "Have you seen Space Jam 2?" Dong-hyuk teased. "LeBron James is cool and can say what he wants. I respect that. I'm very thankful he watched the whole series, but I wouldn't change my ending. That's my ending." Dong-hyuk also suggested that the Lakers forward can "make his own sequel" for Dong-hyuk to watch and he can then send him "a message saying, 'I liked your whole show, except the ending.'" Honestly, I expect nothing less than a brutal comeback from the Squid Game creator.

James has since responded to Dong-hyuk's comments, and he's practically speechless. "This can't be real right??!! I hope not," he tweeted along with several laughing emoji. It's worth noting that a season two is still up in the air, so we may never know what happens next.
