“Squid Game” is basically a show about how capitalism and greed can destroy people’s lives. So the fact that Netflix is making a reality show about it, with a cash prize, is a little suspect.
But the show’s creator Hwang Dong-hyuk isn’t too bothered. He says, “What I hope is that they will be carrying on my vision and intention as much as possible for the show.”
He adds, “I think that even though our show does carry quite a heavy message, whenever you take things too seriously, that’s really not the best way to go for the entertainment industry.”
“Squid Game: The Challenge” is a 10-episode series with a prize of $4.56 million.
