Director Sunghoo Park’s return to Jujutsu Kaisen is not confirmed

The French animatorYann LeGall (@Yann_Le_Gall)” shared an update on Twitter in response to a viral post from the medium AnimeNewsNetworkwhere they had ensured that the director Sunghoo Park was working on the second season of the anime adaptation of jujutsu kaisen. It should be remembered that Park is now working in his new studio E&H Productionso directing in another study is unlikely.

However, given the reliability of the medium and the fact that they were apparently present during the event Anime Expo 2022 (where the confirmation was supposedly made) favored fans of the franchise distributing this information quite happily. But this emotion was short-lived, since Yann Le Gall, who works at E&H Production as an employee of Sunghoo Park, 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: «Thanks by contact with us. Our reporter was in the room during this panel, so I have to wait for her to verify the content of her appearance on video of her. If it is a mistake by our reporter, it would be a very serious mistake and we will issue a correction immediately.».

The correction was finally made in the article, where an annotation was added that wrote: «An earlier version of this article said that Sunghoo Park was “working hard” on the second season. After reviewing the panel audio, that statement has been removed and Park’s participation has not been confirmed.». This then supports the assumption that Sunghoo Park is not directing the second season of jujutsu kaisenuntil the contrary is confirmed.

Synopsis of Jujutsu Kaisen

High school student Yuuji Itadori, who engages in groundless paranormal activities with the Occult Club, spends his days either in the club room or in the hospital, where he visits his bedridden grandfather. However, this leisurely lifestyle soon takes a turn for the bizarre when he unknowingly comes across a cursed item. Unleashing a chain of supernatural events, Yuuji finds himself suddenly plunged into the world of curses – terrible beings formed from human evil and negativity – after swallowing said object, which is revealed to be a finger belonging to 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. Introduced into the Tokyo Metropolitan Jujutsu Technical School, he begins to walk a path from which he cannot return: that of a Jujutsu sorcerer.
