What is Squid Game About?
The Korean horror drama series Squid Game has a deceiving title. The show is about strength and survival in a game of life or death with cut-throat competition. It is about a competition in which a total of four fifty- six people participate. All of these people have one thing in common- they are all financially broke.
The game is a lure since the winner is awarded prize money of 45.6 billion won which is approximately equal to twenty-seven crores and six hundred and eighty-seven lakhs in Indian Rupees. However, Squid Game is the name of a children’s game played in South Korea. But this game takes a dark turn when the competitors realize that their lives are at stake: it’s no fun game. The writing of the show has been a passionate affair for Hwang since he experienced the economic problems and financial difficulties due to financial distinctions in South Korea. Through this show, he has successfully tried to depict the capitalism of the country.
