It took 10 years for director Hwang Dong Hyuk to make the movie
Director Hwang Dong Hyuk shared that he invested 10 years to create the perfect Squid Game. Until 2020, he officially accepted the invitation to make this film.
“I am a person who loves comic books. I go to manga stores to read different types of survival. And I came up with the idea to create a survival movie in a very unique Korean style. So I tried to finish the 2009 script. However, at the time, most people thought that kind of story was very violent and very weird. It was too difficult to find investors as well as to recruit the right actors for it. Therefore, I tried to keep them in own drawer after completing the work in about a year.”
“But over the past decade or so, I've come to realize the fact that we're living.in a time when those games are actually happening all around us. I showed it to people and they told me it was really cool. I think now is the right time to bring them out to the audience," the Squid Game director shared.
There are also realistic models of Squid Game games at Itaewon Subway Station
To promote the film, the producer has invested in simulation games exactly like in the movie. Built all over the Itaewon station area. Visitors can experience the feeling of being in a movie with games such as candy cupping, red and green lights, sentinels wearing mysterious red costumes, empty corridors, etc.
Controversy of plagiarism
Squid Game in the early days of its release also encountered a plagiarism scandal that has many similarities with survival works. Japan's previous As the Gods will (2014). Not long after, the father of this cult film denied because he had "pregnant" this product 10 years ago.
The bloody and deadly survival movie is all in a light, cheerful scene!
It's also strange, if before that, every survival movie took place in a creepy school, a murky jungle or a cloudy path. Then Squid Game let players decide their fate in lovely and very fresh scenes! This is also an extremely interesting big point, intended to attract viewers!
The phone number of the Squid Game switchboard is real!
The scene "the uncle who smashes the paper" (Gong Yoo) gives Seong Gi Hun (Lee Jung Jae) a business card about the phone number of the switchboard in the movie. However, that phone number is completely real and it owned by an individual A!
He had to delete 4000 incoming calls, hundreds of messages. The phone battery "drains without stopping" because it was constantly disturbed. Are they calling just out of curiosity or do they really want to experience this survival game?

In addition to the appearance of popular actors Lee Jung Jae, Park Hae Soo, uncle Gong Yoo or leader Lee Byung Hyun. The "less famous" actors are also gradually being welcomed by the people.
