There’s no denying it — Squid Game is one of the greatest things that Netflix has put out, and no, we’re not exaggerating. Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos responded to the K-drama’s success back in September 2021 when it was released, and said he gave it a “very good chance” of becoming Netflix’s most popular show to date. He was right — ScreenRant reported in June 2022 that the show accumulated over 1.6 billion watch hours, making it Netflix’s most-streamed show of all time. Bottom line: It’s safe to say that most people will immediately recognize your Squid Game costume.
The nine-episode thriller follows a group of people in South Korea that join a game where contestants 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. It’s a show that’ll have you on the edge of your seat — gory, nerve-wracking, and totally impossible to not binge-watch.
