In Squid Game, participants put their lives on the line in the games. Driven to desperation and gathered at an unknown location, the 456 participants play one game each day as they race towards the prize of 45.6 billion won.
Squid Game also placed first in South Korea and 13 other countries, including Singapore and Vietnam. It placed second on Netflix’s global top 10 TV show list.
The Korean drama Sweet Home previously held the highest record by landing on the third spot on the US Chart last year.
