The first season of Squid Game premiered in October 2021 and has become one of the most popular series ever on Netflix.

It won six Emmy Awards in 2022, including an Outstanding Guest Actress and Outstanding Lead Actor in a drama series for Squid Game actors Lee You Mi and Lee Jung Jae, respectively.
