Squid Game. Everyone and their pet cat is talking about this drama that’s taking the world—and TikTok by storm. So what is it? Over-hyped horror? Compelling capitalism cautionary tale? We dig into how the creator worked to bring this story to the small screen for almost a decade, how it adheres to horror conventions and why it’s breaking out stars left and right. We never want to play tug of war again but will take more Wi Ha-joon any dystopian day!
