‘Squid Game’ Creator Defends Netflix Reality Series
The Netflix series “Squid Game” is one of the most popular of all time. Netflix is now putting together a Squid Game reality show series in which real-life players will compete for a chance to win $4.56 million. Fans were divided, as the reality show appeared to completely miss the point of the original drama. Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk, on the other hand, stated that everything is in good fun and should not be taken too seriously. He went on to say that the $4.56 million cash prize for the separate series has nothing to do with his intentions for the scripted drama.
“I think that even though our show does carry quite a heavy message — and I know there are some concerns about turning that message into a reality show with a cash prize,” Hwang told Variety backstage at the 2022 Emmys. “However, I believe that taking things too seriously is not the best way to go for the entertainment industry.” It doesn’t really set a good example.”
The reality show “Squid Game: The Challenge” is set to become the largest reality show in history. 456 real people will compete for a multi-million dollar cash prize. The contestants compete in a series of games based on the original show. New additions, strategies, alliances, and characters, on the other hand, are introduced competitors are eliminated around them, putting them to the test
The 10-episode competition series will be shot in the United Kingdom. The international series is currently casting and is based on the Korean drama of the same name.
