Take a look into how Netflix’s 'Squid Game' was filmed

After taking the world by storm earlier this year, the popular Korean survival thriller series Squid Game has become a pop-cultural phenomenon. Only days after the creator Hwang Dong-hyuk indicated the inevitable launch of a second season, the streamer has released a video that takes a look at how the series had been filmed. 

Starring Lee Jung Jae, Park Hae Soo, Jung Ho Yeon and Wi Ha Jun in lead roles, the series sees 456 participants being confined in small spaces to play a variety of games to win staggering prize money of 45.6 billion Korean Won. 

With a bloodthirsty premise, the series is set in modern-day Korea and is a scathing commentary on capitalism, economic and class conflicts and power hierarchy. 

The intensely violent and gruesome premise, high on vulnerability, frustration, paranoia and remorse, is intensified by 12-minute footage from the set where the camera follows the crew on their journey on the sets. 

The video also shows Kang Sae-byeok having the time of her life with Ji-yeong, laughing and goofing around and more. 

The actors analyse their shots and criticise themselves in the video to be a better version of themselves on the screen, trying to attain perfection. 

With the second season on its way, people are already waiting in eager anticipation.
