According to data from FlixPatrol, The Squid Game has become the most popular foreign language series on Netflix. This is how he managed to overcome La Casa de Papel, which, after five seasons, was still quite strong.

While it is impressive that it has surpassed La Casa de Papel, The Squid Game is also above Sex Education, another popular series that has just premiered a new season. In addition, the South Korean production has positioned itself as the favorite in 10 different countries.

In the particular case of Mexico. The Squid Game is the most consumed content in recent days, as it even surpasses the most popular movie of the moment.
