This is a Korean tv series about a real-life game. The winner of the game takes it all. The participants who could join will have an invitation like this below:

Korean Series: Squid Game (2021)

Squid Game Invitation Card (The number used was real and he receives 4,000 calls a day)

Mostly of the participants are the people who has a lot of debt in the real world. People who are desperate to have a money and looking forward for a wonderful future for themselves or for their family. Every participant was from different walks of life. Some of them are gambler, thieves, immigrant, murder, gangster, priest, businessman and a lot more.

The twist in the game was if you lose, you die. Instant headshot for them. Everyone was fighting for the money and for their lives. The games played where from their childhood. It was easy but everything has a twist.

I love the twisted I idea of Squid Game. I can see it as Hunger game-ish movie. Protagonists need to survive all challenges happening in the game island. Someone is watching over them and giving the instruction too but this one has a lot of participants. It is from 1 to 456 participants. Imagine the people died in this game. It is effin massacre to be honest. The first game was simple yet a hard game too. My little girl was scared with the huge doll. Hahaha Korean never forgets to have a wonderful twist every now and then. This is what I really enjoy with their series. Everything is unexpected. I love it!!! I also love the cameo of Gong Yoo. I thought he will be the game master. I was wrong. I keep on loving a series if I did not predict the next thing that will happen. Good job everyone involved in this series. BRAVO!

The only thing that I was disappointed with was the ending. We went back to call the number again and join the next game. DAMN! If I was him, I will go first to my daughter and spent few days with her and give her the money she deserves to have a wonderful life then go to the game again. Of course! it will not be exciting if the protagonist did the right thing in the first place. Hahaha it will not be a cliff hanging ending. I hope they will continue it to have a season 2.

I will give my pitch for the season 2 hahaha This is just my idea, if there will be a season 2, this is also based on the theory the internet showed to us. Gi-hun with his new red hair, went to call to join for the next game. But instead of joining as a contestant, he was given a spot as a VIP. He was shocked to be with them instead of being in the game. He starts to investigate. He learned that the old guy was his dad. This will be heavy flashbacks of why the Oh II-nam left them and created the game. Maybe the games that was played by the contestants was the favorite childhood games of Gi-hun. This is why Oh II-nam decided to join the game when he saw his son for the first time in a long time. Gi-hun decided to find a way how to end the Squid game or he might take over for his father's sake? I will also add that Gong Yoo might be his brother? Then, they will play the game to decided, who will take over?! What do you think? Comment down below.

Highly recommended! 5 stars out of 5 stars
