The Squid Game: Analyzed

A team of people, who are mired in debt, work super hard to take part in the game with harsh consequences. As a penalty for the wrong task implementation, participants are punished to death.

What comes first: the directors, filming the survival series, or people— who want to see it all onscreen? Let’s take a look at ‘Squid Game’.

A team of people, who are mired in debt, work super hard to take part in the game with harsh consequences. As a penalty for the wrong task implementation, participants are punished to death.

Either Squid Game or not, the history of cinematography has made several other television shows in this suspenseful genre. For instance, They Shoot Horses, Don’t They? or Escape Room. This fall, there is not a single viewer, who didn’t add the Squid Game series to the evening schedule. Whether it was hype, or not, it burst to the top of the charts. So, what are the reasons behind producing such a suspenseful television show, what comes first in the process: the directors, filming the survival series, or people— who want to see it all onscreen? 

The answer seems to be trivial – people’s disorganization pushes the Squid Game system to create a chain of social obligations. The Directors of the game, who originate from the people, are also involved in the social system where huge corporations manipulate people’s sense of duty. So, all of the acute social topics are the beginning of the worldwide mechanism. 

But the answer is that the people who won’t see it all onscreen are the directors of the game. So, their habits are the first to make a baseline set of scenery for the series.

 

Which habits?

That’s an interesting topic, or rather one to postulate, that follows Squid Game’s impact on society. 

To not get stuck in a trap, spend your money wisely.

Your own money or mother’s savings, not like Seong Gi-hun in the first episode. Some researchers claim that for wealthy existence, we have 10% of profits to be saved. Even though you lose the job, your salary declines swiftly, it all could be covered by the money pillow of this 10%. Useful advice!

 

The game we played in childhood has its pros and cons.

The majority of kids team amusements provide us with the feelings when one left beside, lifting the emotions of surviving, attempting to stay in a mass and never losing the support of the team. William Golding`s `Lord of the Flies` describes a world without adults, where teenagers fight for a leading place, in blood and cruelty divided into the two camps. Go on to pursue and even kill the weaker peels. The same scenery sets the film idea that kids fun could bring a tragic end, whether it is played by children or adults. 

 

People with weaknesses are easy to manipulate

Nothing confirms it better than surviving games, as the risk to be killed the first is much higher than to be saved the last. When a person is or feels weaker than the rest of a group, they start to follow the leading one, pretending to feel protected. 

 

Does fast money come in good ways?

People claim that huge incomes come from hardworking ones. While others think it doesn’t matter how hard do you work physically, it’s better to process with intelligence. Either way, the work takes up a lot when it owned the strategy. Fast money often means the resources that come easy, but fair money also could come the same. It only depends on how people treat it and which motivation is based inside.
