  1. Dong-Hyuk Created Squid Game in 2008

Squid Games, the Netflix-backed drama, was released on September 17, 2021. However, the script of the survival drama was birthed back in 2008, almost 13 years ago. The director and creator of the drama, Dong-Hyuk, mentioned that he was financially suffering in 2008.

He then came up with designing a story based on Korean Setting. 13 years later, Squid Game was finally released.
