Seong Gihun (Lee Jungjae) gets fired from his job. His life is miserable. He hears about a secret survival game where 456 people, who have all struggled financially in life, are invited to play a mysterious survival competition named “Squid Game”. He decides to take part in the game. Meanwhile, Cho Sangwoo (Park Haesoo) is like a brother to Seong Gihun and vice versa. They grew up in the same neighborhood. Despite his poor family background, Cho Sangwoo graduated from a prestigious university and found a good job. He now faces a crisis, due to the misappropriation of company funds. He decides to take part in the secret survival game with Seong Gi-Hun. Competing in a series of traditional children’s games but with deadly twists, they put their lives at risk to compete for a ₩45.6 billion (US$38.5 million) prize, for which there will only be one winner. Hwang Junho (Wi Hajoon), a police officer, is searching for his lost brother where his only clue is the “Squid Game”. “Squid Game” is the name of a street game Gihun and Sangwoo played together when they were young. It’s quite a physical game that only ends when there’s a final winner, much like the survival game they play now. It’s named as such because players are to draw different geometric shapes on the ground, which, as a whole, look like a squid.
