The French entertainerYann LeGall (@Yann_Le_Gall)' shared an update on Twitter in response to a viral post from the medium AnimeNewsNetworkwhere they had made sure that the director Sunghoo Park worked on the second season of the anime adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen. It is worth remembering that Park is now working in his new studio E&H productionhence unlikely to be directed in another study.

Jujutsu Kaisen

Given the reliability of the medium and the fact that they appeared to be present during the event Anime Expo 2022 (where the confirmation was supposedly made) favored fans of the franchise, who were quite happy to spread this information. But this emotion was short-lived Yann Le Gall, who works as Sunghoo Park's associate at E&H Production, commented in his reply that the comment was completely wrong.

«I think you should have double checked your sources (or translations?) before spreading misleading information» wrote the animator. Lynzee LoveridgeEditor-in-Chief of the outlet, replied: «Thank you by contacting us. Our reporter was in the room during this panel, so I'll have to wait for her to review the content of her video appearance. If it is an error by our reporter, it would be a very serious error and we will make a correction immediately.».

The correction was eventually made in the article where a note was added that read: «A previous version of this article stated that Sunghoo Park "worked hard" on the second season. After reviewing the panel audio, this statement was removed and Park's participation was not confirmed.». This then supports the assumption that Sunghoo Park does not direct the second season of Jujutsu Kaisenuntil the opposite is confirmed.

Summary of Jujutsu Kaisen

High school student Yuuji Itadori, who engages in gratuitous paranormal activity with the Occult Club, spends his days either in the clubroom or in the hospital visiting his bedridden grandfather. However, this leisurely lifestyle soon takes a bizarre turn when he unknowingly stumbles upon a cursed item. Unleashing a chain of supernatural events, Yuuji suddenly finds himself in the world of curses - horrific beings born of human evil and negativity - after swallowing said object, which poses as the finger of the demon Sukuna Ryoumen, the "King of Curses." ".

Yuuji experiences firsthand the threat these curses pose to society as he discovers his own newfound powers. When he is introduced to the Tokyo Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical School, he begins to walk a path from which he cannot return: that of a jujutsu magician.
