It is reported that Netflix’s original series “Squid Game” only needs one more point to get the perfect score (380 points) and earn an all-kill No.1 in all countries.
On October 1, the global OTT content ranking website, FlixPatrol, announced its ‘Top TV Shows on Netflix’ ranking.
According to figures recorded until September 30 (local time), ‘Squid Game” ranked 1st place in 82 out of 83 countries around the world.
A day ago, the drama rose from 2nd place to 1st place in South Africa and Ukraine, leaving India the only exception.
In the India chart, “Squid Game” had ranked No.3 for a long time but still maintained its upward trend and gradually went up to reach No.2.
Compared to “Sex Education”, which currently ranks No.2 on the overall chart, “Squid Game” has maintained its position as the best show with an overwhelmingly impressive gap of 142 points.
What’s interesting is that movies with similar genres are receiving more attention thanks to the popularity of “Squid Game”
The film that benefited the most from the “Squid Game syndrome” is “Alice in Borderland”, a Japanese movie.
“Alice in Borderland” was released last year and has currently entered the TOP 10 after the success of “Squid Game”.
Meanwhile, “Squid Game” tells the story of people who risk their lives in a survival game to win 45.6 billion won.
It is likely that “Squid Game” will be the biggest box office hit in Netflix’s original series history.
