‘Squid Game’ was shelved for ten years before Netflix approved it
Hwang Dong-hyuk, the show’s creator, spoke to The Korea Times about how he initially struggled to fund the show after writing it in 2008.
Dong-hyuk revealed that he began working on the script ten years ago and finished the first draught a year later, but it took a decade for the streaming giant to give the series the green light.
“After about 12 years, the world has changed into a place where such odd, violent survival stories are actually welcomed,” he explained.
The gruesome series, formerly known as Round Six, was given a thumbs up by Netflix in 2019.
Previously, it was reported that South Korea was suing Netflix for causing a traffic jam.
“We will investigate the claim filed by SK Broadband against us. Meanwhile, we continue to seek open dialogue and explore ways to collaborate with SK Broadband to ensure a seamless streaming experience for our shared customers,” a Netflix spokesperson told CNBC.
