Squid Game is already a bona-fide hit as it continues to be the #1 show in lots of countries, though it might also just become Netflix’s biggest show ever!
During the Code conference in Los Angeles earlier this week, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos said that “Squid Game will definitely be our biggest non-English language show in the world, for sure.” Aside from being the biggest non-English show, Sarandos also said that there’s “a very good chance it’s going to be our biggest show ever.”
Given Squid Game’s incredible reception and massive popularity, we won’t be surprised if it actually became Netflix’s biggest show sometime soon. Though as it stands right now, it’s safe to say that Squid Game is already one of Netflix’s premier series.
In case you haven’t seen the series yet, Squid Game is a new South Korean Netflix series directed by Hwang Dong-Hyuk. The series stars Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Oh Young-soo, Wi Ha-Jun, Jung Ho-yeon, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam, and Kim Joo-ryoung.
The show’s premise is described as:
“A mysterious invitation to join the game is sent to people at risk who are in dire need of money. 456 participants from all walks of life are locked into a secret location where they play games in order to win 45.6 billion won. Every game is a Korean traditional children’s game such as Red Light, Green Light, but the consequence of losing is death. Who will be the winner, and what is the purpose behind this game?”
