The Korean drama ‘Squid game’ is driving people crazy

Netflix’s new Korean drama Squid game is driving people crazy. Not only the kdrama lovers but also the non kdrama lovers are loving the show wholeheartedly. Squid game has proved to be one of Netflix’s biggest hits.

Squid Game is a survival drama series produced in South Korea by writer-director Hwang Dong-hyuk. The show stars some of the industry’s best actors from Lee Jung-jae, Park Have-soon, Wi Ha-joon, and more. There are also several non-Korean stars in Squid Game, actors like Anupam Tripathi star in this ambitious show.

Squid Game is based on a premise that might seem mighty familiar to any fans of the Japanese Battle Royale–which was also royally ripped off for The Hunger Games. The game is named as such because the shape of the game board drawn on the ground resembles that of a squid. Squid Game is currently Netflix’s most-watched show in 90 countries (including the UK), and the streaming service announced today that it is on track to become its most popular series of all time, meaning it would dethrone current champion Bridgerton.

In the Squid game, 456 people, all of who have financial struggles, are invited to take part in a mysterious survival competition to risk their lives to win the ₩45.6 billion prize ($38.5 million USD). For winning the prize, they must endure a series of brutal childhood games. These tasks are all based on traditional childhood games in South Korea, and anyone who fails in a challenge is killed on the spot. The catch here is that the contestants won’t be allowed to leave until the game is finished. And those who want to leave will be eliminated. Other than that, the game will take place at a secret location where the contestants would never be found. So the stakes are quite high, and so is the risk. Among the show’s stars are Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, HoYeon Jung, Heo Sung-tae, Kim Joo-ryoung, Anupam Tripathi and Lee Yoo-mi.
