Everyone is helpless here.

Lee Jung-Jae is in the lead role in the series. He has played the role of a driver and gambling addict. Lee is a divorced man who lives with his mother. She has a daughter who lives with her mother and stepfather. Lee is in debt of lakhs of rupees. So much so that he does not even have money to get his mother’s treatment. Due to this, Lee agrees to play the game. Although Lee and a few others leave the game and come back, the debt burden forces them to return to the game. Others are also trapped in the quagmire of debt.

The critical role of this Indian actor too

What does the director want to say throughout the series?

The Squid Game web series, a global hit, is directed by Hwang Dong-Hyuk. Hwang has prepared the series very thoughtfully. There is a deadly game in the series, but the director has also introduced economic inequality and fraud through the story. Apart from this, how debt makes a person helpless and crippled, how the burden of debt scares you all the time by becoming a mental pressure can be seen in the series.

According to some reports, it took ten years for director Hwang to stage his series. Everyone was rejecting this series, citing it to be unreal. But it is said that the fruit of patience is sweet. Something similar has been seen with Hwang. Squid Game has become the most-watched show in 90 countries so far.

The issue of economic inequality hidden in the series

There is a game in every episode of the series that is a metaphor for life’s experiences. Just as people fight to win the game, in the same way, a person has to work hard to achieve his purpose in life. Squid Game has also tried to show socio-economic inequality, gender inequality and capitalism flourishing in Korea. Overall, Squid Game is an exciting series in which you know that there will be only one winner, but the limit of suspense will remain in it till the end.
