After the surprising reports of Jo Yuri being named as the first female cast member, the rest of the female cast members have come rolling in. However, in the official Netflix confirmation of the cast, the other surprising name to be a part of the project is former BIGBANG member T.O.P.

Please welcome Park Gyu-young, Jo Yu-ri, Kang Ae-sim, Lee David, Lee Jin-uk, Choi Seung-hyun, Roh Jae-won, and Won Ji-an to the game! pic.twitter.com/wV7WErYKpM
T.O.P hasn’t acted much, especially of late with his latest role coming in 2017’s movie Out Of Control, but he does have experience. His role in Iris stands out as something that might apply to his role in Squid Game 2.
The others confirmed in the picture are Park Gyu Young, Kang Ae Sim, Lee David, Lee Jin Uk, Roh Jae Won, and Won Ji Ae. The only one rumored to be a part of the cast who hasn’t been confirmed is Kim Si Eun.
