The number one question floating around is: Are you watching Netflix’s Squid Game? Of course, Netflix’s dystopian Korean show has gained popularity in the same vein as the streaming giant’s other pop culture phenomenons like Bird Box. Beware, watch or suffer FOMO as it is the only show people are obsessed with right now.
What Is It About?
Netflix’s Squid Game comes from writer-director Hwang Dong-hyuk. Initially, the show introduced us to a number of people who seemingly were struggling financially. While some used survival skills to hustle and steal, others put themselves in the situation because of fraud and uncontrollable gambling habits.
When they begin to hit rock bottom, a mysterious man grabs their attention with a wager on a kids game. Then, they were told that there were more chances to earn more by participating in other types of games. So, contestants agree to participate in games not knowing of the deadly consequences if they didn’t follow the rules of the game. Now, they must avoid getting eliminated (killed) and survive to the end in order to cash out on the big cash prize.
