‘Squid Game’ is fast becoming the biggest Netflix series of all time, and it looks like Meek Mill just started getting indulged in the South Korean survival drama.
The rapper took to his Twitter page to share his thoughts about the hit show, comparing the players’ deadly pursuit of the ?45.6 billion prize money to poverty in the hood.
In his words, Squid games’pay attention how fast people switch and kill eachother to survive. Now think about the ‘hood’ poverty …it’s the exact same thing …if you just help them with work/money they won’t be that way ‘just a common sense message.
Netflix’s vice president of content for Asia Pacific, Minyoung Kim, recently talked to The Hollywood Reporter about issues Squid Game addresses and its insane worldwide appeal.
I think the essence of the show is its commentary on social injustice — class divisions and financial inequality, or even gender-related issues. These social injustice issues aren’t only Korean — the whole world is struggling with them. These elements made the show resonate strongly outside of Korea as well.
He added, I would say the art — the set design, costumes, and all of the colors that make it look like you’re in a fairyland playing a childhood game, except you’re playing for cash and fighting to the death — was another big piece in making the show successful. The contrast of life-threatening moments and fun music. These were all elements that helped non-Korean audiences enjoy the show too. The profound social message is just the foundation of the show.
