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.
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.
In this tutorial we used the following supplies:
Step 1.We begin construction by drawing the figures with the help of circles and lines. (Pencil B)
Step 2.Next, draw a circle and a triangle on top of the figure in the center, and also outline the lines of the hoods. (Pencil B)
Step 3. Draw the silhouettes of the figures and draw triangles on the two far ones, and draw a square on those closer to the center and under the triangle in the center. (Pencil B)
Step 4.Remove all unnecessary construction lines and add the remaining details. (Pencil B)
Step 5. We now use the color pencil and start by making the general tone of the clothes of the figures in red. (Colored pencil red)
Step 6.Next, we move on to a more detailed part. With the use of burgundy color we make shadows on the clothes, also enhancing the red color (Colored pencils red, burgundy)
Step 7. And the last step is to color all the masks with black, while making the volume and using it to add shadows on the pieces of paper on top. (Colored pencil black)
