TOP’s casting has been met with mixed reactions from fans. Some are excited to see him return to the entertainment industry after a four-year hiatus, while others are concerned about his past legal troubles.
TOP was sentenced to 10 months in prison and two years of probation in 2017 for smoking marijuana. He has since said that he has no intention of returning to his old ways and that he is committed to making a positive contribution to society.
The second season of “Squid Game” is currently in production, and is expected to be released sometime in 2023.
