This series earns near $ 891 million even the budget for the series only costs $ 21.4 million. Netflix also gains a lot of new users only just for watching this series.
The story was started by Seong Gi-hun and another adult participating in an unknown game that fight for 42 billion for the total prize. Along the way, they realize the game that they participate in is a children’s game. Some of the participants think this is an easy game, but those who fail are eliminated. You may think the elimination process is easy but in this series, they will be got shot by the staff in the Squid Game series.
There are many interesting characters in the series. And, the character’s development is also interesting along the backstory is also intriguing. One of the interesting characters is Oh Il-nam. He was introduced as someone who wants to have fun by participating in the game. He sees himself does not have much time regarding his age and disease. So, he has nothing to lose if he will die in the game. But, in the end, he appears he is being treated for his disease, Turns out, he knows the game all along. There are some mysteries in this character. But, I will only discuss a few mysteries about this character.
The first one is undetectable. If you have already seen the first episode of the series, all participants have to play Red Light, Green Light game. When another participant is detected by the huge girl doll, Oh Il-Nam surprisingly can play the game without a single problem.
Next is the death of Oh Il-nam. Once again, this will contain a spoiler if you have not watched the series. In episode 6, all remaining participants must take 10 marbles from its partner. The participants can use any approach for this goal. While Seong Gi-hun plays with Oh Il-nam, his mind is mixed with his memory when he lived in the neighborhood that was the same as the replica in the game. And, Oh Il-nam already considers Seong Gi-hun as a best friend that will share anything. He gives the last marble for Seong Gi-hun wins the game, but the cost is Oh Il-nam’s life. In the last episode, Oh Il-nam is alive with the machine for his life’s support, and this triggers his suspicion.
The third is the Squid Game’s purpose. Oh Il-nam is exposed as the mastermind behind the deadly game. Since he is a rich old man, he wants to have some fun in the game even it costs other’s life. And, one interesting deduction of mine is that he creates this game only for recreating the happiest moment in his life. Well, it’s still a wild theory.
The last is Oh Il-nam is Seong Gi-hun’s father theory. There are rumors about him as Gi-hun’s father. This is supported by the similarity of childhood experiences, and the neighborhood. Oh Il-nam states that Seong Gi-hun was beaten by his father in his childhood and Gi-hun surprisingly confirmed this statement.
All of these mysteries still cannot be solved yet. Will the film director make the Squid Game season 2? Will he add more multi-dimensional characters in the series? We just waiting for the result since this series is aired in less than two weeks from the moment that the series is on the top global charts. It is an interesting series that you won’t miss in the Netflix stream service.
