I can't believe nobody's posted about this series yet! Another great international hit from #netflix (via South Korea).
When Squid Game first came out, it kept haunting the top of my Netflix page with its eerie music and mysterious red-suited minions. I resisted watching it, because "don't tell me what to do."
However, once our teens finished it and said it was a must-watch, I had to see what it was about. We binged it pretty quickly, which is easy to do since each episode cliff-hangers into the next one. I recommend watching it in Korean with English subtitles, so you can get more of the real emotion behind the Korean words.
The theme of the show is greed, economic imbalances, and humanity. What happens when a group of strangers are thrown suddenly into a confusing and scary situation? How each participant chooses to react is fascinating and horrifying. You'll watch it with one eye covered, but unable to look away.
Can't wait for Season 2.
