Squid Game’ is quickly becoming the most popular Netflix series of all time, and it appears that Meek Mill has recently begun watching the South Korean survival thriller.
The rapper resorted to Twitter to express his feelings on the hit show, comparing the players’ bloody chase of the?45.6 billion prize money to ghetto poverty.
Squid games, in his words, “take attention to how quickly people swap and murder each other to live.” Consider poverty in the ‘hood…’ It’s exactly the same… ‘Only a common sense message,’ says the author, if you just aid them with work/money, they won’t be that way.
Minyoung Kim, Netflix’s vice president of content for Asia Pacific, recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the topics addressed in Squid Game and its massive global appeal.
The essence of the play, in my opinion, is its criticism on societal injustice, such as class differences and financial inequalities, as well as gender concerns. These challenges of social unfairness are not exclusive to Korea; they affect the entire world. These aspects contributed to the show’s remarkable appeal outside of Korea.
I would say the art — the stage design, costumes, and all of the colors that make it look like you’re in a fairyland playing a childhood game, except you’re playing for money and battling to the death — was another important factor in the show’s success, according to him. The juxtaposition of life-threatening situations and upbeat music. All of these factors contributed to the show’s appeal among non-Korean viewers. The show’s significant societal message is only the beginning.
