Netflix has added three films directed by Squid Game director.
Hwang Dong-hyuk is best known for his Netflix hit Squid Game, which drew 111 million viewers in its first 17 days on the service. He previously directed several critically acclaimed South Korean films, three of which are now available on Netflix.
Hwang Dong-hyuk directed several acclaimed South Korean feature films before bringing the visually stunning and socially relevant Squid Game to life — and now, three of those films are available on Netflix in the United States!
Based on true events, Dong-hyuk’s Silence revolves around a teacher who has recently started working at a school for the deaf. When he discovers that its faculty members have been abusing students, he works to expose the truth, only to discover that the surrounding community is willing to cover it up.
Miss Granny is a much lighter film than Squid Game and Silenced, following a 74-year-old woman who escapes her future confinement at a retirement home in an unusual way. She walks out of a strange photo studio as a 20-year-old woman after wandering into it and having her picture taken.
The Fortress is the most recent of the three, having been released in 2017. It transports you to 17th century Korea during the Qing invasion of Joseon, when King Injo and his court are forced to retreat into Namhansanseong, a fortress.
All three of these films are available on Netflix in the United States. While they may not be as popular as Squid Game, they may help keep us entertained while we wait for season two.
