Squid Game first streamed in 2021 and was quickly a people’s favorite. Even those not into K-Drama confirmed it’s not your typical K-Drama show. A sense of mystery and thriller has you watching with wide-open eyes and a ton of plot twists unfolding as the events continue.

The original manga writer, Eiichiro Oda, has joined Netflix’s crew to work on the live-adaption series, giving us the relief we need that our childhood favorite will keep its essence.
