The Korean entertainment business has kept standing out in the world. PSY taught 5 billion people how to horse dance. The boy band BTS is commanding an Army of millions of fans around the world. The Parasite was the first foreign film to win the best picture Academy Award in 2020. Now the turn for K-dramas. The "Squid Game '' released on Netflix on Sep 17 now ranks No.1 in all the 83 nations where Netflix service is available The New York Post reported that over 14 billion videos with the hashtag #SquidGame have appeared on Tik Tok since Sep 17. Ted Sanrandos, co-CEO of Netflix said 'Squid Game will definitely be our biggest non-English language show in the world, for sure." The Squid Game revolves around 456 debt ridden players betting their lives to participate in a series of survival games planned by mysterious hosts, in which the last winner earns prize money of 45.6 billion Won( $38.7M)
I watched the Squid Game a week ago. Pretty harmful. The UN or WHO should ban it immediately for the health of people around the world for its addictive contents. Once your eyes are on it, there is no way you can get away from it for the next 9 hours, turning you into an instant insomniac, worse than a heart attack each time a new Louis Vuitton or Prada handbag pops up in your living room.
