Netflix’s Korean survival drama ‘Squid Game’ has become the most-watched show in Netflix history. The show has been streamed by over 111 million households since its release on September 17.

‘Squid Game’ is a nine-episode series that follows a group of people who are invited to participate in a series of deadly games for the chance to win a large sum of money. The show has been praised for its suspenseful plot, dark humor, and social commentary.

The show’s success is a major coup for Netflix, which has been struggling to compete with streaming rivals like Disney+ and HBO Max. ‘Squid Game’ is the first Korean show to reach the top of Netflix’s charts, and it is likely to lead to more Korean content being produced for the platform.


“‘Squid Game’ has captured the imagination of viewers around the world and shows the power of great storytelling,” said Netflix’s Vice President of Content Bela Bajaria. “We’re excited to see how the popularity of the show continues to grow.”


‘Squid Game’ was created by Hwang Dong-hyuk, who was inspired by his own childhood experiences playing games in South Korea. The show was filmed in South Korea and features a cast of mostly unknown actors.


The success of ‘Squid Game’ is likely to have a major impact on the entertainment industry. The show is likely to lead to more Korean content being produced for Netflix and other streaming platforms. It is also likely to lead to a renewed interest in Korean culture and entertainment.
