South Korea In South Korea, the drama “The Squid Game” is reportedly gaining popularity among viewers. The drama “Squid Game” is said to be gaining popularity among viewers in South Korea, probably because it exposes the reality of South Korea and capitalist society, with its extreme competition for survival and the prevalence of the weak and the strong.

[Joon In the fierce competition for jobs, stocks, etc., the number of people who drop out is increasing dramatically in South Korea. Those who become winners in such a society should remember that they are standing on a pile of bodies of losers. The reality of living in a world where people are evaluated only by their money is filled with voices of resentment and horror. The Squid Game is a simple and entertaining expression of today’s fiercely competitive society that has won the sympathy of many people.

Why it’s more dangerous than “Crash Landing on Love”.

Mary” is a media outlet that people inside North Korea are not allowed to access. The Workers’ Daily, the official newspaper of the Workers’ Party of Korea, does not mention the “Squid Game. Daily News, an expert on the situation on the Korean Peninsula NK Japan, an expert on the situation on the Korean Peninsula, said.

“North Korea’s domestic media will not be able to write about the Squid Game. Even if the content is critical, it would arouse the curiosity of the public. I think the foreign media will only be able to mention the content and criticize South Korea.

Leader Kim Jong-un has strengthened the “Law on the Elimination of Reactionary Ideology and Culture” to crack down on the spread of Korean culture.

“No matter how much we tighten regulations, we can’t prevent the influx of ‘squid games’ into the country. How would the people of North Korea feel if they saw it? The first thing that comes to mind is the public executions that take place on a daily basis.

It reflects the reality not only of South Korea but also of North Korea. It may lead to a sense of criticism of Kim Jong-un and destabilization of the regime. It’s a more threatening work for the authorities than ‘Love’s Crash Landing,’ which was about love between a man and a woman.”

The key to toppling Kim Jong-un’s dictatorship may not be powerful weapons or economic sanctions, but foreign dramas.
