We’ve done a “Filipino version” of Money Heist before, and since Squid Game has been making the rounds on social media lately, we thought, “What if there was a Filipino version of Squid Game this time? Currently one of the most-watched shows on Netflix and with a rating of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, Squid Game revolves around people deep in debt who have been chosen to play famous Korean kids’ games with deadly consequences. We’re sure you’ve seen it by now, so without further ado, here is our Filipino version of the cast:
Slater Young as Seong Gi-hun
Hayden Kho as Cho Sang-woo
Nadine Lustre as Kang Sae-byeok
Coco Martin as Hwang Jun-ho
Mon Confiado as Jang Deok-su
Carlo Aquino as Abdul Ali
