South Korean TV show “Squid Game” has become Netflix’s most popular series ever. The show drew over 111 million fans in less than a month, Netflix revealed.
If you haven’t watched it📺: The show features a mysterious organization that offers some of the most indebted people a chance to win an absurd amount of money by playing a series of games. Only once they start playing the game do they realize they’d be killed if they’re eliminated from the game.
Why is this important🤔: Squid Game proved that foreign-language TV shows are here to stay. The show will open the window for even more foreign-language shows to appear on global streaming services like Netflix, a move most companies would have been hesitant to make, believing that foreign-language shows usually don’t perform well when streamed in a different language-speaking country.
