Squid Game is a South Korean survival drama television series streaming on Netflix. Written and directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk, it stars Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, Jung Ho-yeon, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi, and Kim Joo-ryoung. The series, distributed by Netflix, was released worldwide on September 17, 2021.

The series revolves around a contest in which 456 players, all drawn from different walks of life but each deeply in debt, play a series of children’s games with deadly penalties if they lose for the chance to win a 45.6 billion prize. A nail-biting Korean drama proved to be a powerful story featuring hundreds of debt-ridden contestants vying to win 45.6 billion Korean won (£28.2 million). Hwang had conceived of the idea based on his own economic struggles early in life as well as the class disparity in South Korea.
