Squid Game is a series shown on the famous Netflix platform, I do not hide a secret from you that it did not catch my attention when I first saw the name, or even the teaser for it (trailer), especially since I am not a fan of Korean drama, but after a few days of its presentation I found millions of followers All over the world, overnight, it became the talk of all media outlets.

As soon as I opened any browser or social media, I found it leading all the headlines, and here I decided to watch the series, which caused a stir in more than 90 countries.

I started watching it. In the first episodes, there is a series of light sequential events, telling about a man in his forties who suffers from poverty and unemployment, mired in debt, and has a young daughter from his wife, whom he separated from due to his poor financial conditions.

In his attempts to earn money in any way, he is met by a man who offers him a small game that if he wins he wins money. The hero agreed without hesitation, but he lost in the first rounds, and he had to pay the money since he was the loser, and because of course he did not have the money, the man asked him to slap him in return Each round loses out.

The hero agreed to his great need for money. In this scene, my feelings were mixed between sadness over the hero’s condition and disgust at accepting the insult in this way. After several rounds, the hero won and took the money. The number is limited.”

After the hero returns home and thinks, he decides to communicate with them. to sign the contract; To participate in a group of games and the winner wins a major financial prize, which is announced after the completion of the first game, six easy and simple games that most of us played in when we were young, losing the game means excluding the player, and here lies the surprise and that this exclusion means killing the player.

In the beginning, the scenes of violence are limited and do not exceed a minute, but as the episodes pass, you find yourself watching a group of violent scenes only and interspersed with only one or two normal scenes, the strange thing in this work is not only violence, in fact this is not the first time that we watch violent series , the strange thing is that the author of the work made the characters give up all their principles for money, and not one or two players, but all players do that, except for the only hero who did not give up his principles and morals for the sake of money, although in my personal opinion the author did not expose him to himself pressure on the rest.
