The origin of the name
The scriptwriter’s imagination was based on their own culture, but also on the types of series and movies that interested them, disturbing and violent. “Squid Game is a game that I used to play as a child in school or in the neighborhood. It is a story about people who used to play this game as children and who played it again as adults . I felt that this could be the children’s game more symbolic that it could represent the kind of society we live in today, “said creator and director Hwang Dong-hyuk.
Squid Game is so named because players must draw geometric shapes (circle, square, or triangle) on the ground, and as a whole they appear to form a squid . If an attacker manages to pierce the defender and enter the squid’s head, the squid is proclaimed the winner of the game.
