If you haven’t seen Squid Game yet, the Korean show follow “hundreds of cash-strapped players [who] accept a strange invitation to compete in children’s games. Inside, a tempting prize awaits — with deadly high stakes.”
The show stars Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, Jung Ho-yeon, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi, and Kim Joo-ryoung.
Squid Game has garnered positive reviews from critics and fans since it was released on September 17, 2021. According to Ted Sarandos, co-CEO and head of content at Netflix, “Squid Game will definitely be our biggest non-English language show in the world, for sure.” He added that there is “a very good chance it’s going to be our biggest show ever.”
