A temporary replica set of Netflix original drama series “Squid Game,” installed at Itaewon Station in Yongsan, central Seoul, closed earlier than scheduled after doubts over violations of quarantine rules had been raised."

"In response to the growing concerns of the public, the Seoul Metro announced that it will close the operation of the set, Ogame World, on Saturday, a day earlier than the expected closing date."

I deleted because I accidentally posted a spoiler image so I guess I'll post this here. Idk if this is unpopular because I haven't talked to anyone about Squid Game yet but he really annoyed me. He reminded me of a puppy but a puppy I want to kick.

Also what was everyone's favourite game? I loved the tension of the glass hopping game, and the twist in the marbles game with only one person from each team getting to survive.

I liked the three female characters, surprisingly. I ship San Beyouk and Ji Young, thought they looked cute together even before the marbles episode.

Femcel sperg ahead

There were only 3 relevant female characters. The cat looking one who is a literal top model, and her marble game partner who's gorgeous too. Both in their 20s. They were given only perfect personality traits. Everyone else is sperging out about dying but these girls are too cool to care, make great sacrifices and have fucking supervillain backstories. Then the third woman who looks closer to average and isn't 19 years old gets all the bad traits. She's made to be the biggest sperg in the show and no one likes her.

I think the show was good. It got kind of splotchy inbetween, mainly when the organ harvesting subplot began but it was more enjoyable towards the beginning than towards the end. If you like Gantz, Battle Royale or any other survival anime/show you'll like this show. I just wish my dude didn't dye his hair red? He would've made a good Iori from KOF but no…

No. 163357

I liked Sae-Byeok her death was bullshit btw, she should've won and her friend, but I actually enjoyed whats-her-name despite the fact that she had a bunch of negative traits, that bathroom scene with 067. I feel like she was a good match for all the other selfish players except for when she literally killed herself just to get revenge on that dude, but I guess that fits her brand of crazy, and the game probably wouldn't have progressed if she didn't.

I get why Sangwoo did it, but Ali's death made me really sad. When I saw so many farmers saying they didn't feel bad for Ali, I was like damn. As pathetic as it sounds, that marble game episode is the one where I cried. Anyway, I saw a lot of people saying MC is a shithead for choosing to go after the game creators, and while I agree that he's a huge unlikeable dumbass, I kind of understand why he did it. They were still watching him and knew that he was going to travel to see his daughter, so it kind of makes sense that he would want to end it completely. I just hope he's doing it to protect his family and not for selfish reasons (he probably is though, who am I kidding)
Anyway, I'm sorry for the long post.

Battle Royal wasn't the only inspiration he had. He also mentioned Kaiji which has the main character going back over and over and over. It's a gambling addiction and the want to finish the game and the creators, for him. I don't know about the SG MC though. I don't think it's about his daughter.

I generally enjoyed the show especially for how short it is, but I am still shocked that people are hyping it out so much? Is that all because no one ever watched Kaiji or similar stuff? Are normies that limited?

The show is nice but it's also way too overrated. It has some plot holes and stuff too.

Couldn't stand him as a character either, his 'arc' was also pretty rushed. Really thought this character was just forced by Netflix, after all they add trannies and other shit in every new tv show, whether writers like it or not. Same with the sex scene.

Sangwoo was the best character imo. He wasn't the typical deadbeat with a heart of gold, he felt like a real person that was pushed to do terrible things for someone he cared about. My friends disagree, but I think Sangwoo was playing purely for his mother, so him purposefully trying to get his "friends" killed wasn't THAT bad.

And I feel like the show was being extremely hypocritical in trying to portray Sangwoo as a bad person. Hi-gun also "killed" someone, and if Sangwoo didn't push that person they all would have died. A thank you would have been more appropriate than accosting him. /sperg

I was very excited to finish it because it catched my attention but it's like it didn't really left a mark on me like all the series I watch do, probably because it's not an original concept and predictable. However it's so perfectly done to be so popular and mainstream, the formula is just exactly as it has to be. I read that the creator spent six months to write the first two episodes and he lost six teeth (how?) while producing it because of the stress, crazy.
I liked the acting and the music, as well as the production of course, it was amazing. I would have liked a background on the workers, soldiers, etc (the guys with the red tracksuits). There was a theory going around that if you chose the red paper while playing with the guy on the train, it meant you were going to be one of the red guys but it's not possible because we saw people who were participants and chose the red paper, would've been very cool.
Sangwoo was the most interesting character for me too, he was the only one with some kind of complexity and contradictions like an actual human being, I really liked his smart takes as well
Which one was your favorite game? To me the tug of war, the marbles (because they confronted someone they had affinity for) and the glass bridge were horrific to watch but they were also the best ones

the part of the show that stuck with me the most was when jiyoung sacrificed herself for saebyeok. it was so touching and tragic especially because of how they talked abt hanging out when they got out of the games, even though it wasn’t possible. they had a short lived but very impactful bond.

what struck me the most about this show was the production value, coloring and over all aesthetic of the show. it’s the type of show someone can make endless tumblr aesthetic posts and gif sets about lol

No. 163507

Agree on the formula part, that’s why I was so surprised by people acting like they’ve never heard of the “abducted to play a deadly game” concept.
Wouldn’t be surprised if in 10 years we have an Isekai type of Netflix show.

I know it’s a sort of Sci-fi type of show but there were so many parts that didn’t make sense to me.

>The staff

Who recruit those people? Clearly they need people with some firearm knowledge and diving knowledge (Potentially a doctor onsite). Sometimes people can slip out unnoticed and sometimes the cop can switch costumes and nobody notice, but also they record everyone and make sure everyone is accounted for. Plus the people driving the boat, etc.

> The (hot) cop

Mate maybe leave a note to your boss? Get a geotracker tag on you? Maybe don’t rely on getting some 4g in the middle of nowhere to send your texts?

I also felt like everyone besides Sangwoo was pretty 1 dimensional. I wish they showed the 2 girls friendship growing more along the episodes than quickly within like 2 games.

Also I oddly enough like the deadbeat dad as a character. I mean, I know he's a piece of shit. But he feels human to me and he kinda grew on me. I don't love him but I kinda like him a lot. I just hate the ending so much, holy shit. Just go to your daughter idiot. Way to ruin the entire series

I don't even have IG nonnie lol. She seems like a very nice girl but I think she's just not what I think of as beautiful. She's tall and more stunning compared to the average person person, but she is not the typical kdrama lead that I think are really beautiful, like Bae Suzy for example.

I think people paid so much attention to this because it is edgy and is very pretty looking with nice actors and nice colors. But god the games were super boring.
Correct me if I'm wrong but is the glass bridge a children's game? They didn't explain it and I can't relate it to a kids game, I just don't get why only one game isn't a stereotypical kids game, it could be something I don't know though.
The twists were extremely boring, fucking "Oh money can't buy happiness we need to watch people dieee" was so stupid, the gamemaster reveal was stupid, the Westerners' dialogue was EXTREMELY stupid. I cringed during all of the English dialogue. I think the series dipped hard after the marble episode.

No. 164769

I liked him but his writing frustrated me. He's obviously not a doormat and doesn't take people at their word (like how he stood up to his boss to try and get his pay) so I wish we'd seen more of that in the games.

I thought it was ok and the ending was kinda bad, but I truly think the art direction and aesthetic made it popular in the first place. The other Asian (albeit Japanese) death game show, Alice in Borderland, didn't even reach a portion of its popularity and it's probably a combination of that + less shilling. Or maybe Squid Game was the exception. Anyway the final lesson made no sense: what's equal about crossing a bridge that can crush under your feet if you go first? what's equal about a tug of war game where young men are at advantage? Meh. At least in the first two games it only depended on you.

No. 165028

The show isn't subtle about being a critique on classism and capitalism so I think the inherent unfairness of a lot of the games is part of the point. It's a metaphor for how capitalist values shill hardwork and equal opportunity when in reality some groups of people have advantages over others that contributed to their success. I also think that the front man character was intentionally written to have fully bought into the bs that the games are supposed to be equal and fair since he was one person out of hundreds who got lucky and now he perpetuates the cycle after becoming rich and powerful.

Nevertheless I really liked the show and the people scoffing at it because of muh intellectual Kaiji and Battle Royale need to take it as it is, survival games are an age-old trope and at least the writer had the balls to admit that he drew inspiration from manga and movies instead of autistically denying it like the author of Hunger Games.

All of this. Even the mastermind in the end congratulates Gi-hun for his good luck and hard work, not just hard work alone. So I still think it's safe to say that the games weren't supposed to be seen objectively fair from the viewer's point of view because like in a capitalist society in general, some people have natural advantage and some things are simply based on luck. When you really think about it, none of the games were fair and equal, all of them had some handicap to them.

This is pretty damn disrespectful to me. Her looks were absolutely not a defining trait for her character and she was written to be a jaded, traumatized, desperate person who still wanted to stick to her morals with no tolerance for injustice.

some people do not seem to realize he isn't fluent in korean language and that's why he asks so many "stupid" questions because he doesn't understand the words

this (lack of understanding language barriers) seems like a monolingual problem mostly

i kinda thought that maybe then being like cartoon characters was the point, that they have become so rich that they don't seem fully human anymore but act more like characters because they just have all the fuck you money in the world so why not waste it in stupid masks and all that over the top hammy shit

it's what i thought gi-hun dyeing his hair was about, he has so much money that he could just go ahead and fuck with his appearance for shit and giggles because why not? he can do anything now

My favorite character was the old man. I knew he was gonna end up being a bad guy, but that didn't stop me from loving him. I love old person characters, I always get attached to them. I love the mothers of Sangwoo and the deadbeat as well. Lovely old ladies.
I have to admit I don't hate the deadbeat dad either, mostly because I love the trope of shitty people with hearts of gold. He can also be seen as a symbol of working class people being perverted by vices, or something like that, but I'll leave the pseud analysis to the pseud analysts.
It wasn't a great show, but it did what it was meant to do -entertain- pretty well.

No. 167629

..aaaand nevermind I got subtly persuaded into watching it anyway.

I agree, he seemed way too over the top polite and kind and innocent to be a real person during the game and it became annoying real quick. Which, like the other anon said, is a shame because the work scene was more interesting. You'd think he'd have a strong opinion after getting bullshitted by his superior for 6 months while he and his family wete living heavily impoverished despite him working hard.

>My favorite character was the old man. I knew he was gonna end up being a bad guy,
I'm only at Ep 5, but that short off-hand "I used to beat my son too tehee" comment was so weird, I didn't get why he was displayed as poor senile man otherwise. So I'm glad it might be intended and not some cultural or quirky punchline

No. 167646

No. 167658

While I personally still found Squid Game to be an okay watch, neither really good nor bad, I also found those things they pointed out to be iffy when I first saw it. I remember feeling so uncomfortable about the necrophilia that's been mentioned off-handedly, and 212 having to use sex to ensure her safety but thought that might have been realistic enough in these situation because moids are disgusting. The decorations in the VIP room I found completely ridiculous, and here I couldn't even tell myself that they might've done that for the realism, I'm just convinced the prop director (or whatever you call it) was too horny for his own good lmao. Also hated the portrayal of 456 being treated as a good person even though he's a horrible son and a dead beat father, but I thought this was just a main character problem, where most people sympathize with him just because they're forced to see everything from his narrative.

No. 167662

one thing that bothered me was the bridge game. those glass panels seemed to be placed too far apart from each other, i would have fallen off after jumping. how come none of them got dizzy from the height or slipped off? why aren't more people annoyed by it??

Exactly. The necrophilia (and all the stuff you pointed out) made me want to break the tv, it wasn't necessary at all, just using women being violated for shock value and entertainment like all types of mainstream media. It's depressing and something we can't ignore

No. 167683

just finished it here are my small brain thoughts
-sangwoo was my favorite at first, I rooted for him up until he killed sae-byok. He did what he had to do bla bla idc that was too mean
-the two young female characters were beautiful and had potential but they made them boring and 2d, shame. the crazy lady was a cool, interesting character but insufferable. Can't have shit in detroit
-the ending was sad and weird but ok
-I agree with >>163335. I don't like characters who are so morally perfect, they take me out of the story because I can't empathize with them like real people
-that kpop looking cop mf is hot. My biggest gripe with the ending is that all his efforts were seemingly in vain. I hope he's still alive somehow and plays a bigger role in s2
-none of the players were really likeable to me (except for the mary sue girls) but out of all of them I liked the main chacter the most, even thought he's kind of dumb. Ig I relate to him because I'm a lazy disappointment to my mother too

No. 167691

She was my favorite character by miles, I thought her final line was especially based. I also think we should have gotten more backstory on her, I want to know more about all the crazy antics she was known for on the outside of the game, she even mentions having a reputation far and wide. The actress did a great job and made her both a complete wacko and a likable underdog at once

He really does look like a Yakuza character tbh

No. 167916

The thing that bothered me about the bridge game was that I kept wondering why nobody just put one foot on each of the centre beams and attempted to walk across that way. iirc it was never explicitly stated that they were only allowed to jump?

No. 167918

is it me or the bathroom scene with sae-byeok going into the ventilation was a subplot that went completely forgotten? or i'm just an air head and i didn't see anything from it?

No. 167932

i guess it was to show that she saw them preparing the honeycomb beforehand which she then told sangwoo about. because he clearly had some idea of what the game was about before they started but still let his bestie pick the umbrealla shape ie the hardest one and didn’t try to warn his team it was just hinting towards his cunning nature from the very beginning

No. 167934

I loved Saebyuk and the unhinged older woman but I don't see the appeal of Jiyeon at all? I guess it was nice that she sacrificed herself for Saebyuk but she reminded me of annoying ~cute criminals~ like Yuka Takaoka. I couldn't take her seriously

No. 167938

I see. Nevertheless I thought at least she would have find more secrets or maybe show more scenes, since the last shot show us the vent focused with a loose screw…

No. 167941

Agreed. Or at least they should've made it another character do it. She wanted to continue the games from the very beginning and her only goal seemed to be to save her family, so it doesn't really make sense for me why it's exactly her who wanted to find out why and how the games were done. 456 or even 212 would have seemed like the better choice. If it were Jiyeon who did it, it could've served as a better introduction for her and may have been an opportunity for us to bond with her too, rather than her just being part of the team now.

No. 167965

why didn’t Saebyok just tell the guards she was stabbed, they definitely would have tried to do something in the name of that “fairness.” seems to go against the principles of the game and also the fuck did they expect blowing up GLASS?

No. 167967

the blowing up glass thing was probably a measure to ensure the remaining people after the clock ticked its last second were killed. They got to safety on the very last seconds so they couldn't prevent the glass shards everywhere, I bet that if the game had gone as intended (jump jump jump) and they were the first ones to survive, they wouldn't had been harmed by it. I guess this was also intended to harm the last participants that barely made it on time.

i’m not sure if this was intended by the writers but i feel like it could have been a ~metaphor~ for capitalism. like the old guy wanted the games to be as fair as possible but even in those conditions capitalism isn’t fair and people can suffer through no fault of their own. also the games weren’t really fair like how they purposely restricted the food of certain contestants

I assume it's because it was based on a Kaiji game where the beams were electrified, but that detail got lost in the shuffle. The show has a handful of odd contrivances where characters just don't think of things, like how no one guessed that the marble game was going to be 1v1.
