Who created Squid Game
Hwang Dong-hyuk designed and wrote Squid Game. Hwang said he wrote the script in 2008, when he was in financial trouble and living in a Manhwabang, reading Japanese survival manga books.
“I wanted to write a story that was an allegory or fable about modern capitalist society, something that depicts an extreme competition, somewhat like the extreme competition of life. But I wanted it to use the kind of characters we’ve all met in real life.” Hwang stated. According to Variety.
Hwang based the story on childhood Korean games to demonstrate the absurdity of a game where competition was unimportant becoming a severe competition with people’s lives on the line.
The squid game, which he chose as the centerpiece, was a famous Korean children’s pastime in the 1970s and 1980s.
Hawng recalled the squid game as “the most physically aggressive childhood game I played in neighborhood alleys as a kid, which is why I also loved it the most”, and because of this “it’s the most symbolic game that reflects today’s competitive society, so I picked it out as the show’s title”. According to NBC.
