If you haven’t noticed by now, Netflix’s Squid Game is the latest streaming phenomenon we’re obsessed with. Just as much as we can’t get enough of the show, neither can the cast who took the time to share their own critiques of their performances in a recent video. In the clip, cast members Lee Jung-jae (Seong Gi-hun), Park Hae-soo (Jo Sang-woo), art director Chae Kyung-sun, and director Hwang Dong-hyuk got together to shed some light on how the series came to be and share some behind-the-scenes insight.
Crazy to think the show wouldn’t even exist had it not been for Dong-hyuk not giving up on the show’s out-of-the-box concept. “After about 12 years, the world has changed into a place where such peculiar, violent survival stories are actually welcomed,” he told The Korea Times. “The series’ games that participants go crazy over align with people’s desires to hit the jackpot with things like cryptocurrency, real estate and stocks. So many people have been able to empathize with the story.” And just like that, the show is already on track to make Netflix and maybe even TV history — talk about a game changer!
