NetflixThe #1 Netflix Korean drama about financially desperate people competing in a high stakes tournament has only continued rapidly increasing in viewership since its release on Sept. 17.NetflixIt's honestly such a good show. I'll admit I'm only halfway through, but the visuals are stunning, the acting is phenomenal, and the plot is tantalizing.

They had to wait 10 years for a new generation of people to grow who had not watched SAW. Damn idc what do you like better 1. Ramen 2. Rice Let's be honest: we needed to live through a Trump Presidency and a global pandemic that smoked 700k people before it was a good fit for society. Now seeing people get brutally murdered while playing childhood games so they can afford to pay their rent seems totally normal

What difference could a few degrees of global warming make? ClimateCrisis ClimateEmergency ClimateAction Climate COP26 COP26Glasgow Youth4Climate I watched it. All I can say is you all have some poor taste Swap Nazi officers for Koreans. This would be the biggest hit of all time Any word on the accusations that the Korean is far different than the English subtitles?

Moral of the story: dont give up yeah and imagine how bad it would've been 10 years ago THE STUDIOS WHO REJECTED HIM PUNCHING THE AIR RIGHT NOW Commenting on specifically the Studios not picking it up... Studios always cancel or ignore the good shows...they have no clue what some of us want to watch. I personally have never watched squid game...not interested at all.

apparently, in salt mines, slavery exists in south korea. they can excuse their 'Saw' knockoff on the pandemic. like everythin else is excusd. parasite? hunger games did ok. this generic shitty ass market'll always have niche. netflix buys anythin. i dont care about gory dystopia HAIL SQUID GAME! (Splatoon)

Honestly, the cop/VIP subplots are pretty terrible. And the ending was a bit of a let down. The show is certainly carried by captivating stuff with the main players and games, but let's not pretend there aren't holes here. harrisonJNIOR Haha yea we do Success story 🔥🔥 he kept improving on it BrianLaundrie parents know what happened to GabbyPetito

Jokes on them. Those studios missed a gem. This will be the natural evolution of MrBeast!! That's crazy as there are already similar shows on Netflix such as Alice In Borderlands, it's really good too This is awesome because Netflix really knows how to get quality entertainment on their platform. Unlike the networks

'Squid Game' on track to become most-watched show in Netflix’s history in any language'Squid Game' on track to become most-watched show in Netflix’s history in any language. Best show of the year What’s it about? Dexter is coming back Showtime…November 7th is yo time! It’s the best show ever better than Breaking Bad, The Wire, The Sopranos, Prison Break, Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead combined Amazing

Honestly? Good. I don't think this show would've been nearly as successful ten years ago, everything suddenly clicked for this show now and I really don't think it could've gone any better. Taking Netflix by storm What a awesome show this was!! Bring it back!! Never give up! I thought it was not so good.

série lendária Check out the DeFi underdog $Hoge then. No better redemption story. Truly for the people. No huge fatcats owning the supply.. top 10 wallets hold less than 10% of circulating supply ($Dogecoin and $Shib are over 40%) South Korean writing American This is why people 50+ should have absolutely no say in the world. We will take care of you but sit in your rocker and keep your opinion out. From as small as the movies and shows we see to how much we get taxed and paid. They’re in control of it all.

Throw that on the pile of things execs don’t know Koreans are taking over the world ❣️

‘Squid Game’: Netflix Installed Replica of the Show’s Murdering Robot Doll at a Shopping MallWhat better way to promote a new TV show than to scare the living daylights out of unsuspecting passersby? In a marketing stunt for Korean thriller “Squid Game,” which has become a vira… Am كذب Yikes!

I absolutely love this. Being half-Korean, I love that the 1 show is foreign-made w/ an all-Korean cast. We need more diverse stories being made & spotlighted. Everyone rejected them & now SquidGame success is their revenge on a closed-off industry too afraid to take risks. it’s probably because it would have been a really basic morality play. the production design and casting 100% carries squid game.

Maybe now that that's successful, someone will finally greenlight Stephen King's The Long Walk - the grandaddy of killer game stories. Fire every single one of those studio executives. Well good thing it was rejected so long. It might not been as good. The world was a different place. But maybe might have been better looking at it that way.

It was okay, but real ones know that Squid Game isn't even a top 10 Korean Drama on Netflix. It’s a stupid show why would they And that's what you call in your face This is real life though people always reject others, just to later regret it 🤷🏽‍♀️ facebookdown 🤷‍♂️😅🤣
