Do you enjoy watching survival thriller shows? Squid Game is a show that centers on a desperate group of adults in severe debt who are tricked into playing traditional Korean children’s games for money, but there’s a catch. Losing the game will cost you your life. Many contestants are hesitant to play the games but realize that it might be their only chance to survive. 45 billion South Korean won (38 million US dollars) are at stake, but survival chances are incredibly slim. Squid Game is a violent, stylish, and edgy thriller. It will keep you on the edge of your seat with all the twists and turns this show presents. It is neatly written, well-directed, and a pure binge-worthy show. You get to watch a dark story told in bright, joyful colors and ingenious settings; does it get any better than that? The answer is yes! It will make you stay up way later than you should, but it will be worth the suspense and sadness. This show is chaotic, poetic, and powerful in every message the film conveys. But the question is, would you survive the Squid Games?
