Squid Game, directed by South Korean director Hwang Dong-hyuk, shows the story of a game competition between 456 people who are in debt to the shoulder. All these people become part of a game to get out of debt in which they have to play some children's games. If someone wins this game, then he will get 45.6 billion South Korean won (about Rs 300 crore). But there is a big twist in the game which these people are considering as a children's game.

This is the biggest twist

The person who will be out of the game will not only have to say goodbye to the game but he will also have to say goodbye to the world. Yes, elimination in this game means losing your life and once you get into this game, there is no way to go back.

The second is The Man with the Umbrella, the third is Tug of Wars, the fourth is Ggnabu, the fifth is Glass Stepping Stones in which the player has to cross the glass bridge to the other side. The sixth and last game is Squid Game.


In the first five games above, players cannot engage in any violent behavior with each other, in fact, there is no chance, but this is not the case in Squid Game. In this game, the player can go to any extent to win the game. A little hint has also been given about this game at the beginning of the story.

Everyone is helpless here

Lee Jung-Jae is in the lead role in the series. He has played the role of a driver and gambling addict. Lee is a divorced man who lives with his mother. She has a daughter who lives with her mother and stepfather. Lee is in debt of lakhs of rupees. So much so that he does not even have money to get his mother's treatment. Due to this Lee agrees to play the game. Although Lee and a few others leave the game and come back, the debt burden forces them to return to the game. Others are also trapped in the quagmire of debt.

An important role of this Indian actor too

All the actors in the show are from Korea. Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-Joon, Jung Ho-Yeon, Gong Yoo, Heo Sung-Tae, and Delhi-born Indian actor Anupam Tripathi.

He enters the game to fund his family's expenses.

What does the director want to say throughout the series?

There is a deadly game in the series, but along with this, the director has also introduced economic inequality, fraud through the story.

Something similar has been seen with Hwang. Squid Game has become the most-watched show in 90 countries so far.

The issue of economic inequality hidden in the series

There is a game in every episode of the series which is a metaphor for the experiences of life. Just as people fight to win the game, in the same way, a person has to work hard to achieve his purpose in life.
