Netflix‘s latest K-Drama original, Squid Game, recently launched to a huge success. The show soared in rankings and soon pulled up to first place on the charts in the US, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and many other countries.
Not only have the stars of the show been shooting up in popularity, so many viewers were interested in the show that they even tried calling the phone number that appeared in the drama.
