Squid Game is about a group of 456 money-hungry players who accept an odd invitation to compete in several children-based games to win 456 billion won. As time passes, however, the group discovers that each game comes with a certain risk. The survival drama series is created by writer-director Hwang Dong-Hyu. The cast includes Lee Jung-Jae, Park Hae-Soo, Wi Ha-Joon, Oh Young-Soo, Anupam Tripathi, Heo Sung-Tae, Kim Joo-Ryoung, and Jung Ho-Yeon.
The second season of Squid Game will debut on Netflix this year (2024).
