Netflix’s Squid Game Went Through Hell to Get Made

Netflix’s Squid Game is now a major international hit and is likely to become the most-watched series of all time on the streaming service. However, a lot of fans may not understand just how much of a Cinderella story Squid Game really is. But that’s about to change. As you can see in the tweet below, Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk had to go through a pretty hellish struggle in order to get the series onto Netflix and reap the massive success that he’s now enjoying. It’s a great read, and all the more reason to love Squid Game while you’re watching it! 

As The Number Game explains: “Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk wrote the show in 2009 but was rejected by studios for 10 years. He once had to stop writing the script + sell his $675 laptop due to money struggles. Today, it’s #1 in 90 countries + set to become the most-watched show in Netflix history.”
