There’s no denying it. Squid Game has risen as Netflix’s next big thing, and no, I’m not being dramatic. According to Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos, the K-drama series shot to the top of viewing charts, giving it a “very good chance” of becoming Netflix’s most popular show to date.
The nine-episode thriller follows a South Korean community where contestants, who are in extreme debt, play a series of children’s playground games in an attempt to win $38.5 million. The kicker? Death is the penalty for losing each game. Think of Hunger Games meets Battle Royale meets Saw.
