Squid Game – Netflix Streaming – 9 Episode Korean Drama/Thriller

Squid Game has “a very good chance” of becoming Netflix’s most popular show yet, co-CEO Ted Sarandos said Monday. Squid Game was “No. 1 in the world, like everywhere in the world,” Sarandos, who is also the head of content at Netflix, said Monday at the Code conference in Los Angeles. “Squid Game will definitely be our biggest non-English language show in the world, for sure.” He added that there’s “a very good chance it’s going to be our biggest show ever.”

Surprised no one has posted about it here, given the above :) . I enjoyed it a lot. There were some good twists, some I saw coming and some I did not. I was able to semi-binge them this week while I was on PTO. My wife is halfway through so I am rewatching them with her. Definitely enjoying the memes and seeing some of the foreshadowing, Easter eggs, etc. that I have seen online after finishing the first watch.

I’ve read some highly critical reviews that the english subtitles/dubbing was so far off that those fluent in both languages are claiming if you don’t understand Korean, you didn’t watch the show. :)
