Squid Game: 15 Things You Missed

Korean media is the gift that just keeps on giving with this battle royale style, gritty satire absolutely dominating on the platform right now, with it being in the top 10 most popular shows on the streaming service in over 22 countries. The series which is a jet black and violent portrayal of humanity is full of twists and turns, brilliant foreboding, easter eggs, hidden details and subtle references that it’s worth giving the show a full rewatch. However, until then we thought it would be best to take a look at the listed items in great detail, putting the show up to the magnifying glass, and finding the secrets hidden in plain sight.

In this video then, we will take a look at 15 things from the show that you may not have noticed on the first time of asking. We will look at all of the foreshadowing in regards to the identity of the game’s true architect (and how the evidence was in front of our eyes the whole time), the subtle imagery that spells out the entire story painted on the wall of the player’s dormitory for all to see, the subtle foreboding of key character’s deaths and how they will die, the visual cues that you may not have initially noticed, the inspiration for both the show and the costume and set design, some familiar faces you may not have noticed and some goofs the show makes just for good measure. Get ready to have your dreams haunted all over again as we reenter “Hell”.

  1. One thing that doesn't make sense in my opinion… The main character (I'm sorry I'm bad with names) sold his organs if he can't pay back his depths within a month. As we know, even after the game he didn't use the money for a year, but nothing happens. 😅

  2. I think that one hint is not jumped on by a lot of people, but when they first entered the game, number 001 was counting the amount of people who were playing. Maybe an old habbit as gamemaster?

  3. Another small detail that I’ve not seen posted anywhere online:
    In episode 2 when Jun-Ho enters In-Ho’s abandoned apartment, we can see the apartment is small and modeled exactly like the rooms the masked workers sleep in on the island – from desk location, to the bed. This shows that In-Ho more than likely became a worker after winning the games in 2015 and wanted to stay in an apartment modeled after their rooms on the island. He probably then worked his way up to become the Front Man. I also believe he is the first and only Front Man.

  4. Also one thing to notice was when the players were killing each other at night the old man disappeared for the whole time and when he screamed at the end ,then the front man signalled the game to end!
