111 million people watched Squid Game in the first 17 days
Squid Game is about a group of 456 people who have been struggling financially throughout their lives, playing various children’s games and fighting fiercely to win the big prize of 45.6 billion Won. The interesting thing is that the contestants do not know that the people who were eliminated in the first place were killed.
When the contestants learn this bitter truth, they vote after the first game and end the game. However, the contestants who still want to compete due to their desire to win a big cash prize are given another chance. With the resumption of the competition, the event now turns to the struggle for survival rather than the games played. At this point, there are many events, including the contestants who kill each other and drag their friends to death by deceiving them in the games.
As can be seen, it was announced that Squid Game, which is easily separated from other productions with its interesting concept, was watched by 111 million people in the first 17 days after its release. In addition, the production made the most successful debut in Netflix history, leaving behind the first season of the Bridgerton series, which was at the top with 82 million views.
