Squid Game has already officially taken the number one spot on the U.S. top 10 ranking on the streaming service too! But is it really worth all the hype it’s been getting?
Well, don’t take it from us… Here are 20+ fan reactions that prove that Squid Game deserves all of its hype and more:

10. When you say you won’t crush on anyone in the series, but then there’s HoYeon Jung
11. Lee Yoo Mi has our hearts too though
It’s no wonder she has gained so many followers on Instagram since the show’s premiere!
12. Let’s be real, this entire cast is somehow low-key hot?
13. There’s someone we can all relate to in some way or another

14. TXT’s Soobin and Beomgyu are low-key obsessed with it too
Soobin has even revealed who he thinks out of all the members would die first if they participated in Squid Game themselves (that’s how obsessed he is)! Although he used to be a big Penthouse fan, he now chooses Squid Game over it!
15. So much feels

20. It’s more than just a Battle Royale-like series
HEY Y’ALL if you’re looking for something to binge, Squid Game (on Netflix) was absolutely WILD. 🤯 Even though the “Battle Royale/Hunger Games” concept is imo quite overdone, this show genuinely managed to surprise me, in addition to having great acting and set design. pic.twitter.com/IXHbxzHX6Y
