The Netflix series “Squid Game” is becoming a real social phenomenon. Online since September 17, it also raises many questions. A theory on the organization behind the terrible games is currently the buzz.
Squid Game: Netflix’s surprise hit
In just a few days, the Netflix series Squid Game has established itself as the 2021 hit. Ranking first on the Netflix top in several countries around the world, including France, the South Korean series could even go further. Indeed, if it continues its momentum, it will become the biggest success in the history of the platform. An unexpected success, when it was launched discreetly September 17th latest.
Between Battle royale and Hunger Games, the series focuses on the story of Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), who after a combination of circumstances, will find himself participating in a mysterious game to pocket nearly 33 million euros. But to do this, he will have to come out alive from six deadly mini-games, in which 455 other players participate. The nine 60-minute episodes plunge us into this disturbing and fascinating universe, where many questions remain unanswered.
Color theory is the buzz
If we have to wait until the very end of Squid Game to discover (in part) who is behind this mysterious organization, a theory concerning the choice of the participants is currently the buzz. Indeed, according to several Internet users, the players and the guards would be recruited in the same way, but their roles would be assigned based on the cover color they choose at the start.
In the first episode, Gi-hun chooses the blue sleeve to play ddakji. According to the theory, if he had chosen the Red one, he would not have participated in the game as a player, but as a guard. The latter also seem to be prisoners of the game, and obey the organization. In addition, we discover in episode 6 that the latter can also eliminate the guards if they do not respect the “rules of the game”. A theory that therefore seems to hold water.
