Lee Jung Jae and Park Hae Soo will star as two childhood friends who wind up joining the game—only to learn that there is more at stake than just the prize money.
In addition to releasing a trailer for the upcoming drama, Netflix also unveiled an unsettling poster that puts an ominous twist on the Korean children’s game known as the “squid game.” As one of the game’s faceless workers drags a bloody corpse towards a coffin decorated like a gift box, the poster’s caption teases, “45.6 billion [won], the childhood innocence of grown-ups will be destroyed.”
