Squid Game: The 77-year-old protagonist who suddenly became famous
Squid Game has reached the top 10 of Netflix in 94 countries and has been viewed by over 144 million users in one month
One of the people who stood out in the huge success of Squid Game all over the world is Yeong-su Oh, who plays the player 001. At the age of 77 he had only five roles in the last twenty years, while he has in his CV two scripts for Korean projects that were released in 1965 and 1975. He was not a man who lived by the profession that is.
Now, all of a sudden, he became known all over the world and his phone rang incessantly for work, but as he stated in an interview, he did not expect it and was not prepared.
"I have to calm down and get a little organized. My phone keeps ringing and I receive countless messages. But I do not have a manager and it is difficult to catch them all. "Fortunately, my daughter is helping me," he said.
As for how he feels with such great and unexpected recognition, he had the following to say: "Things have changed a lot. Even when I go for coffee I have to think about how others see me. "It made me think that being famous is difficult."
Squid Game has reached the top 10 of Netflix in 94 countries and has been viewed by over 144 million users in one month, a record number and by a huge margin for the platform.
Although a second season should be taken for granted at the moment there is no official announcement from Netflix.
