Fun Facts Quiz of Squid Game (Part 1)

I don’t watch a lot of TV shows, but I can’t resist good shows, especially if it’s a Korean show. One day, a group of my friends were at the gym talking about a TV show. Naturally I joined the conversation and they asked me if I was watching the show: Squid game (Oh-jing-ah-game: squid game). I had never heard of the show before, but it was clearly one of the most popular TV shows these days. I had to say no to the question, but I started watching the show the same night.

I think the show is well planned and has the ability to grab the viewer’s attention at once. The show, for sure, is interesting. I even thought about who came up with the address! But what I really love about this show is that it depicts the daily lives of ordinary people in modern Korean society. I don’t want to spoil anything, but there Petty (Soo Su Han: Small, minor, trivial details) in the show bring back childhood memories of Korea.

While I was watching the series, I noticed that the show contains the depth of Korean culture. There are things you will appreciate more if you understand the culture. Today, I want to share with you a few fun facts about the show.
