best shows on netflix

In Squid Game, the disturbing yet fascinating hit Korean series on Netflix concerning a deadly tournament of kids' games, the competition itself winds its means to a bloody resolution. However, that doesn't imply all our questions are dealt with by the end. 


Things you might not know about Squid Game:

1. "Squid Game" was originally meant to be a movie

This isn't too surprising, considering Hwang's film background. He wrote and directed major hit movies like "Silenced" and "The Fortress." He was also a screenwriter and director of the musical comedy "Miss Granny," which is widely considered one of the most successful Korean films of all time. 

2. The walls in the players' room have doodles that foreshadow the games.

The dorm walls, which are initially covered by beds, actually have drawings that serve as clues for the players to see which games will be played. 

3. The first game's doll is a real creation you can visit.

The eerie oversized doll from the first episode of the show is real and can be found in Jincheon County, a rural area around three hours north of Seoul.

4. The phone number in the first episode of the show is also real.

Contestants get involved in the game by calling the eight-digit number on mysterious business cards. 

5. One of the challenges in the show is now a TikTok trend.

The challenge with dalgona candy, a type of honeycomb toffee, has inspired TikTokers to create their own version. The candy consists of two simple ingredients — sugar and baking soda — but the true challenge is eating around the image imprinted in the treat without breaking it.
