Is Squid Game season 1 on DVD yet?
Hwang had conceived of the idea based on his own economic struggles early in life as well as the class disparity within South Korea. Though initially scripted in 2008, Hwang had been unable to find a production to support the script until Netflix around 2019 found interest as part of their drive to expand their foreign programming offerings. Hwang wrote and directed all nine episodes himself. Squid Game received critical acclaim and attracted international attention. Within a week of its release, it became one of Netflix’s most-watched programs in several regional markets, and within its first 28 days of availability, drew more than 111 million viewers, surpassing Bridgerton as the network’s most-watched show.

The players are kept under watch at all times by masked guards in pink jumpsuits, with the games overseen by the Front Man. The players soon discover that losing in these games results in their death, with each death adding ?100 million to the potential ?45.6 billion grand prize.[a] Gi-hun allies with other players, including his childhood friend Cho Sang-woo, to try to survive the physical and psychological twists of the games.
