Squid Game (2021)

The trailer begins with the comment, “All of you here today are standing on the precipice of life with debts you cannot afford. 4 back 56 participants start a survival game with a prize of 456 billion won. 

As soon as the game gets underway, however, an unexpected gunshot rings out, sending the participants into a frenzy. The film, which director Hwang Dong-Hyuk describes as “a huge allegory that bypasses modern capitalist society,” features a variety of actors, including Lee Jung-Jae, Bak Hae-Su, Oh Young-Joo, Stomach Ha-Jun, and Jung Ho-Young.
