What are the eligibility and game rules?

The number of game participants is 456. Participants will face off with games that already appeared in ‘Squid Game’. However, the results are unpredictable as Netflix’s new games will also be added.
The winner will monopolize the $4.56 million. If you lose, you have to go home empty-handed.

Many people are concerned that it might be as dangerous as the content of the drama, but Netflix has drawn a line by saying that the participants will never be hurt.

If you want to participate in the game, simply apply through the official site. The eligibility to apply is also very simple. Anyone who can speak English can participate. Netflix also heated up the curiosity of netizens by saying, “There are still slots left.”

Meanwhile, a year has passed since the release of ‘Squid Game‘, but its popularity has not at all declined. Director Hwang Dong-hyuk and actor Lee Jung-jae have recently received the Best Director and Best Actor awards at the 74th Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, USA. This is even more meaningful as it is the first non-English work to win the award.

‘Squid Game’ returns with season 2

The ‘squid game’ syndrome is not over yet. Director Hwang Dong-hyuk is currently working on ‘Squid Game 2‘ with the goal of releasing it in 2024.

The second season of the series will also feature familiar names from its previous works like Lee Jung-jae, Gong Yoo and Lee Byung-hun. However, it is not yet known how they will perform in season 2. Director Hwang Dong-hyuk said that all games in season 2 have been decided.
