how-did-the-series-squid-game-become-a-viral-phenomenon-on-the-internet-top-facts

The main character, Song Ki Hoon, is 40 years old. He is a pathological loser - divorced, ruined, living in a shabby apartment with his sick mother and barely making ends meet. He also has a little daughter who is about to leave with her mother and stepfather for a better life in the United States. Ki Hoon owes money from everyone in the world and is trying to recoup by placing bets on horse races.


Unsuccessfully. After another escape from creditors, he goes to the subway and meets a mysterious stranger who offers him to play a game of hundreds: if Ki Hoon wins, he will receive 100,000 won, and if he loses, the man will slap him in the face.


After the end of the hundred square meters, the main character is handed a business card with an invitation to another game - with higher stakes - literally and figuratively. At stake is a 45.6 billion won ($ 38.5 million) prize and a life of his own.


Ki Hoon and 455 other people, who find themselves in a desperate situation, are brought to a secret island, where they are forced to compete with each other in six children's games (although they are not furnished at all in a childish way). There is no chance of escape: the participants are being watched by cameras and masked armed personnel. Among the competitors are a thieving bandit, a burned-out financier, a labor migrant from Pakistan, an old man falling into dementia, a defector from North Korea and others. Everyone has a good reason to do their best to win.


1. Survival thriller tricks

The series uses classic survival thriller tricks, making it a lot of fun to watch. The authors play on the spectator's base feelings: after the first shock from the bloody scenes has passed, it becomes interesting to watch the game and try to guess who is next to drop out of the game and who goes on.


2.All the characters are deeply worked out

Despite the simple plot and the abundance of violent scenes, the series still does not hit the forehead: all the characters are deeply worked out, each has a personal drama. Blood is only the personification of human greed, which kills the last remnants of dignity and morality in the heroes. Money becomes an obsession that literally floats in the air: in the common room where the participants live, a huge glass ball with a prize fund hangs right under the ceiling, which is replenished after the death of each participant.


3.Brilliant acting

Another reason to watch the show is brilliant acting. Heroes faced with a difficult choice want to believe and empathize. South Korean model Ho Yong Jung, who played a refugee from North Korea, won particular love from the audience - you've probably already seen the fan art dedicated to her. This is the first film role for the model who starred in the advertising campaigns of Chanel Roberto Cavalli.


4.The problem of social stratification and poverty in modern South Korea 

The Squid Game shows very accurately the problem of social stratification and poverty in modern South Korea and criticizes the capitalist order of the world. This idea is taken to the absolute in the script: the characters consciously choose deadly games, the prospect of dying turns out to be more attractive for them than returning to an old life where there are debts, but there is no chance of getting out of them.


5.A new start

This is a great start to Korean cinema, which has grown in interest since the triumph of Pong Joon-Ho's Parasite.



6.An Internet phenomenon

The series has gone beyond the platform and has already become an Internet phenomenon that is already difficult to ignore. The #SquidGame hashtag on Tik Tok has gained over 22 billion views: users post their favorite scenes from games, transform into their favorite characters, repeat the sugar honeycomb test (they prepare a traditional Korean sweet - dalgons, and try to carefully cut a shape out of it with a needle), build theories and Not only.


7.The visual style 

The visual style of the series is a separate pleasure to watch - endless labyrinths, perfect symmetry, an abundance of pastel colors that are not in any way associated with a bloody mess, bright contrasting costumes of the characters (which, obviously, will become the inspiration for Halloween images).


8. Real people and no computer graphics

The selection of actors for the main roles was not limited to. According to the plot, 456 players take part in the competition. The creators did not want to resort to the use of computer graphics. This is why 456 actors actually participated in the first giant doll test!


9.The scenery

Great attention was also paid to the scenery. The creators tried to do everything to make the elements of the game look as effective as possible in the frame. “There was a lot of CGI in the tug-of-war and glass bridge scenes, and I couldn't guess the scale just by reading the script. Because of this, I was very curious about how the set would be organized when I went to the shooting. And every time the set was so good that we all took pictures before filming, ”Lee Jong-jae said in an online interview with Star News.


10.Backlog for the sequel

Of course, fans are already discussing the second season of the drama. All in all, the nine episodes of Squid Games look like a complete work that did not leave many questions. However, Netflix is unlikely to want to say goodbye to such a big hit.


Director Hwang Dong Hyuk admitted that he hasn't received any offers for a sequel yet. Now the director is working on a full-length film "KO Club".

top-40-funny-squid-game-memes-that-which-will-make-you-shiver

In the "Squid Game", 456 indebted and desperate people from marginalized communities in South Korea are lured into a survival game where they have the chance to get $ 38 million. Instead, he has to win six children's games. It sounds simple, but whoever loses is executed in cold blood.


We don't know who their executioner is, because his face is covered. In fact, they all have their faces covered, except the players who are identified by the numbers on the shirts. The first round turns out to be a massacre. But the players, initially shocked, end up getting over it. All for money, for a huge amount of money that is put in a huge transparent purse above their heads.


Money makes these debt-ridden people forget about empathy, principles, sabotage and killing. The action of the series revolves around Seong Gi-hun, a man over 40 years old, addicted to gambling, who does not have the money to buy his daughter a suitable gift for the birthday or to pay for his mother's medical care. his. Although bloody, the series has caught on around the world and may become the most popular show on Netflix, as recently stated by Ted Sarandos, co-executive director of Netflix.

top-5-most-upvoted-posts-of-2020-on-reddit-bemorepanda

Hundreds of posts make it to the front page of Reddit. Bemorepanda ask how your friends always find interesting things on the Internet before you? They probably use Reddit, the self-proclaimed "front page of the Internet." Read more every day, but few will ever rise high enough to stand among the top Reddit posts. Only the best of the best of / r / can all have this honor.


In light of Reddit's recent community criticism, these high-class posts give us an insight into what the community as a whole values, reminding us that all this drama is largely a product of a vocal minority.

 

Of course, some subreddits are more popular than others, so we limit this list to 5 subreddit posts from 2020. Some of them are emotional, some of them are funny, but this makes it all. Not to mention, let's take a look at what the Redditors really enjoyed.


1.This reddit consists of a funny memory during lockdown. This was the 1st tour in 89, backstage in Vegas.


2.A meme can be a top reddit. It is called a short story and it starts with a Flat Earth.


3.This is a case from Minneapolis, the person who posted this video is pleasing people to make it viral. Make America see this! Police and National Guard patrolling neighborhood and shooting civilians on their own property.



4.Before and during the lockdown, people were going crazy about toilet paper. Everyone was buying it. So the message from this reddit is really clear.


5.This reddit is emotional. If you watch this, you can get tears in your eyes. It's a message that everyone needs to watch and hear. Everybody's trying to shame us.

the-most-delicious-recipes-of-2020-according-to-google-trends

Cooking recipes are now more affordable than ever. The Internet is an open book where everyone can find the perfect recipe. There are a lot of recipes that can be easily accessed.


In 2020 there are many searches in the field of cuisine. Bemorepanda selected the top 10 search questions about different dishes. Here is the top with the most sought after recipes in 2020.


1) Sourdough bread

Combine sourdough for yeast-free bread with 1/4 of wheat flour in a separate bowl, and pour 80 ml of clean drinking water at room temperature. Stir all the ingredients together, cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm, quiet place for 8-10 hours or overnight. During this time, the leaven will increase and bubbles will appear on its surface. This will be the so-called dough for future bread.


After the dough has "come up" and is ready to go, you can proceed directly to making bread. To do this, sift the premium wheat flour separately into a large bowl. Add salt and sugar for a balanced taste.

Put the dough into a bowl with sifted flour and mix. Pour in vegetable oil (refined sunflower or olive oil) and stir again.

Then add water in small portions and knead the dough. In this case, you may need a little more or less water. It all depends on the type of specific flour and the percentage of gluten in it.


For convenience, the dough can be kneaded first with a tablespoon or spatula. After sprinkle the board or table with flour and transfer the dough to it. Then, with your hands, knead a tight, but at the same time elastic dough, which should not stick to your hands. Add a little more flour if necessary.


Shape the dough into a ball, put it back in the bowl and cover with a towel. Put in a warm place for 40-50 minutes. It should "fit" and double in size.


After the dough has increased, you need to crush it a little with your hands and form a bread (round or oblong) from it, and put it on a baking sheet, previously covered with baking paper. Leave the dough to "come up" again for the same amount of time.


In the meantime, turn on the oven at 220 degrees Celsius.


As soon as the dough increases again, make cuts or patterns on top of it for future bread and put in a preheated oven on the middle division and bake for 20 minutes. Place a deep baking sheet underneath with a little water to create steam.


After 20 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 180 degrees Celsius and bake the bread for another 20 minutes.


Then take out the bread, cool and serve. Bon Appetit!


2) Whipped coffee

Coffee lovers will appreciate this original dessert. Long-lasting coffee foam, like an airy mousse, with a thick, rich flavor and aroma - you get it without much difficulty, after spending just a few minutes.


  • Prepare instant coffee, sugar and water.
  • Pour the coffee into a deep bowl or whipping bowl.
  • Pour the coffee with cold boiled water.
  • Using a mixer, beat the water and coffee into a light foam, about a minute.
  • Add sugar.
  • Now beat the coffee with water and sugar with a mixer at high speed until a stable, strong and stable foam is formed. This will take about 3 minutes.
  • Place the froth in bowls or glasses and serve.
  • It is better to serve such a coffee dessert immediately after preparation so that the foam does not fall off.


Whipped coffee has a rich coffee flavor and aroma. It can be served not only as a dessert - a couple of spoons of such foam added to milk will give you a wonderful milkshake. Ice cream served with coffee foam will also be wonderful.


Coffee lovers will love it!)

Bon Appetit!


3) Disney churro

Step 1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, a tablespoon of sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Add flour until mixture forms a ball.


Step 2. Heat the oil for frying in a deep fat fryer or skillet to 190 degrees C. Put the dough in the hot oil using a pastry bag. Fry until golden brown, then fold on paper towels.


Step 3. Mix half a glass of sugar and cinnamon. Dip the dried churros in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.


The size of each churro can vary depending on how you make it. Small ones are more convenient to eat without additives, but if you make them more authentic, then such churros can already be eaten by lowering them, for example, in nutella or condensed milk.


4) Dole Whip


Pineapple ice cream is a popular dessert to try at Disneyland. While traveling to the famous amusement park, I bought this delicacy for myself and the children. We liked it very much. It turns out that such a sweetness can be easily and quickly prepared at home. This requires only a certain set of products and a modern kitchen appliance - a blender. It only takes two minutes to cook.


  • For pineapple ice cream you will need:
  • A third of a glass of coconut milk.
  • A cup of vanilla ice cream.
  • Half a glass of orange juice.
  • Frozen or canned pineapple slices (at least 3 cups).


Orange juice and coconut milk are placed in a blender bowl. Combine these products with pineapple slices and vanilla ice cream.


Grind ingredients at high speed. The resulting mass should have a smooth, creamy texture.


If necessary, you can add some more juice to it. Ice cream is placed in vases or tall glass glasses. You can squeeze out the mass with a pastry bag, decorate it with pineapple slices or other fruits, berries.


5) DoubleTree cookie

Delicious shortbread cookies with chocolate chips. Mmm ... Easy recipe, nothing complicated. Double serve!


First we need to melt the butter.

Grind the melted butter with sugar.

We drive in the egg.

We mix everything. We all flour. And also - baking powder and vanilla sugar (vanillin is also possible).

Chop chocolate. You can take any, I took a bitter one.

Add chocolate to the dough.

We sculpt circles. You can roll the dough into a layer and cut out circles, but I just flattened the balls of dough. We bake shortbread cookies with chocolate chips for 20-25 minutes at t 190 ° С, in general, until tender. It all depends on the oven.


Bon Appetit!


6) Ikea meatball

Anyone who ate at the Ikea store had the opportunity to taste the delicious Swedish meatballs served there. Here I will show you how to make Ikea meatballs. It's pretty simple and fast. Cooking description:


To make the meatballs the same size, use a teaspoon to scoop up the minced meat and form tight balls by rolling them between your palms. Usually Swedish meatballs are no more than 5 centimeters in diameter. Oven-baked meatballs are crispy. If you want to soften them, place them in a creamy sauce and boil a little in it.


First, let's prepare the minced meat. Put the meat in a bowl, add milk and eggs there. Finely chop an onion, send to a bowl, also add salt, nutmeg and ground pepper. Put bread crumbs and 2 tablespoons of soft butter there.


 Mix the minced meat well, send it to the refrigerator for an hour. Then preheat the oven to 210 degrees, cover the baking sheet with foil and start sculpting small balls of the same size. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about half an hour.


Now we can do the sauce. To prepare it, mix 2 tablespoons of butter with flour, fry in a pan until brownish. Now you need to add broth and cream there, a little salt and pepper. Simmer the sauce until slightly thickened.


Put the finished meatballs on a plate and pour over the creamy sauce. Typically, meatballs are served with mashed potatoes. Another irreplaceable addition to the dish is lingonberry jam.


7) Chaffle

This recipe for waffle iron is the easiest and cheapest, so we started to get acquainted with the food from it very conveniently. Ingredients:


  • 3 eggs
  • 450 grams of flour
  • 1 packed sugar glass
  • 150 grams of margarine 82% fat
  • 10 grams of vanilla sugar
  • teaspoon of soda
  • 1 tablespoon fatty acid


Method of preparation: Margarine softens in a soft state, but does not melt until it is transparent. Eggs with sugar and vanilla beat lightly. Sand together with baking soda and mix. Combine all 3 mixtures into one and mix with the moss, add a little flour. Get it to the density of sour cream. Meanwhile, heat the waffle iron. One tablespoon of the dough should be poured and spread quickly over the surface. Press the lid for 1-2 minutes. The first waffle bakes until brown, and the next - until golden. 



8) Hamburger bun

This recipe makes hamburger buns like McDonald's. The same soft, gentle, and if you press on the top, then it quickly regains its shape. Fast food is bad, but luckily there is a trade-off! I advise everyone to give preference to homemade buns. There are no harmful additives in them, you see all the products that are used and control the cooking process. In this recipe with a photo, it is proposed to make a yeast dough, and sesame seeds are taken as a coating for buns. And the hamburger recipe itself will soon appear here.


Milk - 235

Milliliters Water - 1/2

Glasses Butter - 55

Gram Egg - 1 Piece

Flour - 560 Grams

Dry yeast - 9 Grams

Sugar - 2 Tbsp. spoons

Salt - 2 Teaspoons

Number of Servings: 12


How to cook:


  • Combine and heat (until the butter is melted) in a saucepan all LIQUID ingredients except the egg.
  • Now make sure your hands are dry. Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Then add the flour mixture to the warm mixture of liquid ingredients. Stir, break 1 egg into a saucepan. Add the remaining flour gradually. Knead the dough and divide into 12 balls. Put them on a baking sheet and let stand for 35 minutes. Heat the oven to 200 C.
  • Bake the buns for about 10-12 minutes. Now you can make burgers or just enjoy tea rolls.


9) Egg salad sandwich

Suitable for dietetic and vegetarian (for those who eat eggs and dairy products) food.


  1.  Boil eggs, peel, finely chop.
  2.  Cut the leeks into rings.
  3.  Cut the cucumber into small cubes.
  4.  Mix yogurt with pesto sauce.
  5.  Mix all ingredients with the resulting sauce, salt and pepper.
  6.  Dry the bread in a well-heated skillet on both sides.
  7.  Put egg salad on top of the bread.


10) Healthy banana bread

Today bananas are sold in almost every store and are by no means considered exotic. 


1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

2. In a blender, grind peeled bananas in mashed potatoes.

3. Add eggs, salt, cinnamon to the bananas and mix again.

4. Melt the butter.

5. Combine both masses in a cup, add flakes or flour sifted with baking powder. Stir until smooth. The consistency of the dough will resemble thick sour cream.

6. Add nuts and raisins to the dough.

7. Put in the oven for 35-40 minutes (I put it with blowing). It is better to take a baking dish either rectangular for bread, or round, of medium diameter (20-25 cm), with high sides. You do not need to grease the form with oil, the bananas are already fat enough, they will not stick for sure.


By the way, you can use the same dough for making banana muffins, however, in this case, the baking time should be reduced to about 20 minutes.

The cake should rise slightly (do not open the oven until the end of the process), check readiness with a wooden stick. The texture will be wet, but if the stick is dry, then the cake is ready.

most-discussed-5-topics-of-2020-on-reddit-bemorepanda

At the end of 2020, all totals are concluded and conclusions are made. Many sites have made charts with the most sought after things and curiosities. Bemorepanda has taken into account many people's curiosities in 2020, and here is one of them.


 Do you like to surf the internet all night on obscure forums, reading irrelevant information that arouses your eccentric curiosity? Do you feel the need to discuss strange topics with strangers from the other side of the country or even the world? Do you want to be the first to know everything about everything that happens in the world in any field that exists, and at the same time to get internet points for your original and funny comments?


If YES, then you are in the right place!

Sit back and browse through these pixels to get acquainted with your new adventure.

The new adventure called Reddit!


Reddit is a site where everyone can post links or texts. People can vote and of course comment on that link or text. The way the site is organized offers the opportunity to discuss any topic imaginable. There are so-called subreddits, each dedicated to a certain subject, a certain community of people, a certain sphere of knowledge ... in other words, there is a subreddit for almost anything, no matter how learned or stupid it may be.


Some numbers, for those who like them (year 2020):


1. 50.2M + mentions of COVID, COVID-19 or coronavirus across the platform

2. # 3 most popular community (by YoY activity) was r / coronavirus

3. 48.286% YoY activity increase in r / unemployment

4. r / coronavirusrecession and r / stimuluscheck were the 2 biggest business communities (by subscribers) created in 2020

5. r / covid19_support experienced a 50x spike in activity in March


What makes reddit better than other communities and forums on the internet?


One - a lot of people, so a lot of quality content that comes to the surface. For example, there are a lot of specialists who answer questions in any field; In addition, interviews with celebrities such as Elon Musk, Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Murray, Tim Berners-Lee, Julian Assange, Marilyn Manson, Edward Snowden and many, many others are held on reddit. .


Two - as we said, there are communities for every imaginable subject. But unlike other communities with similar interests, those on reddit are usually much more active due to the large number of users.


Three - the stellar speed at which you can learn new things from around the world, as evidenced by the fact that many other sites "steal" news (or information that can be turned into news) to be published externally - hence the phrase " the front page of the internet ”. What allows information to surface so quickly is the upvote / downvote voting system, so the most relevant posts always come to the surface in the subreddit they are part of.


Here we have collected the most interesting charts from 2020. Of course, the pandemic was the center of attention. Coronavirus is in all discussions on earth, even online.


Another powerful topic is Blacklivesmatter. A subject that turned everyone's life upside down in 2020. George Floyd and the painful but reality-filled history of this man has reached thousands of hearts and tears all over the world.
