‘Squid Game’ entertains

Hope Stunkel, IV Leader Columnist

The new popular limited Netflix series called “Squid Game” is a South Korean survival drama television series created by Hwang Dong-hyuk for Netflix.

The cast includes Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, Jung Ho-yeon, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi, and Kim Joo-ryoung.

The show is based on a set of games that were children’s games that help with getting out of economic debt with a prize of 45 billion won, South Korean’s currency, for the prize. These versions of children’s games turn deadly if somebody loses or does not follow the game rules.

Overall, I really liked the Netflix series because it was so addicting and engaging from the start. I watched the whole series in one day and it had nine episodes which were around an hour each.

The cast plays children’s game like red light green light, the honeycomb game, etc.

I do have to say it was really intense because of the ways that people die in the game, such as shootings and falling through glass. This is not a television show for children, but for mature adults because of the level of intensity in the series.

The only thing that I did not really like was the way that the people died in the games and that the series was not long enough.

I do not like that parents believe it is okay to let their kids watch it who are in their teens because it can be triggering to them. I would definitely not recommend it to a child between the ages of nine to 17, but the show is appropriate for someone 18 or older. I would definitely recommend the show to people who like a good action thriller with lots of surprises and action-adventure.
