“The squid game” (Squid Game), a gory drama from South Korea, has become one of Netflix’s most popular shows.

In early October it was the most watched series in 90 countries and its success is giving the world the idea that the Asian nation has a complex society.

But aside from being a highly suspenseful story, with struggling contestants participating in games of life and death in exchange for money, the series has earned plaudits for its depiction of the real difficulties affecting to the inhabitants of South Korea.
