The show was a blast across the globe and people started to get costumes and masks to express their enthusiasm for it. Also, the first season of Squid Game made people keen on learning Korean Language and fans were going crazy over it. Interestingly, the origin of the show is a bit astonishing.

The presence of the globally known streaming platform changed the creator’s mind.
