Spoiler Alert

This article reveals plot details of a current movie or series.

Even the most well-crafted shows like Squid Game can have tiny mistakes. Check out these errors you might not have spotted the first time around!

3. Player 17, the glassmaker and…time traveler?

Eagle-eyed fans found a glaring error in Player 17’s profile. According to this, he was born in 1897, making him 124 years old. No wonder he decided to participate in the games; after living for so long, life must have been boring!

7. Not hungry?

As this fan pointed out, Gi Hun ate nothing air in one Squid Game scene.

8. The real phone number

The production crew made the mistake of including a real phone number in the fictional world of Squid Game. At first, Netflix did not intend to remove the number, but after the owner of the phone was plagued with calls, things changed. The network pledged to edit the number out of the show.


9. Jun Ho’s magical phone

How did Jun Ho’s phone still have battery power after days of being used without a charger?

Perhaps Season 2 will answer this burning question and more!
