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.
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!
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".
