A SHOCKING revelation about Squid Game!
Hwang Dong-hyuk, the creator of Netflix’s popular Korean survival drama Squid Game, has recently revealed that he drew inspiration from Donald Trump to materialise his ideas for the critically acclaimed show, claiming that the former president’s administration felt like a game show.
“I conceived of the theories for the show in 2008,” Dong-hyuk recently told Indie Wire. “At the time, there was the Lehman Brothers crisis; the Korean economy was badly affected and I was also economically struggling.”
The Squid Game creator went on to explain that “Over the past 10 years, there were a lot of issues: There was the cryptocurrency boom, where people around the world, especially young people in Korea, would go all-in and invest all their money into cryptocurrencies.”
“And there was the rise of IT giants like Facebook, Google, and in Korea, there’s Naver, and they are just restructuring our lives,” he added, pointing out that “It’s innovative but these IT giants also got very rich.”
According to Hwang Dong-hyuk, Squid Game’s rich and villainous VIPs were mainly inspired by Donald Trump, more specifically after he became the 45th President of the United States.
