A mysterious invitation to participate in the competition is sent to people in dire need of money. The 456 participants from all walks of life are trapped in a secret place where they compete to win 45.6 billion won. At each turn they play a popular Korean children’s game like “One, two, three, star”, but whoever loses… dies. Who will win and what is the real reason for the race?
Written and directed by Hwang Dong-Hyuk ( The Fortress, Miss Granny and Silenced ), the series had been in development since 2008. Hwang initially wanted to make a film, but due to the complexity of the plot, he was unable to secure the investment and cast. .
The series stars Lee Jung-Jae ( Along with the Gods ), Park Hae-Soo ( Prison Playbook ), Wi Ha-Joon ( Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum ), Oh Young-Soo ( God of War ), Anupam Tripathi ( Strangers From Hell ), Heo Sung-Tae ( Beyond Evil ), Kim Joo-Ryoung ( Andante ) and model Jung Ho-Yeon here in her television debut.
We remind you that Squid Game 2 was announced some time ago, and we will, apparently, also have a “real” reality show inspired by the serial, but clearly not as much… lethal!
