Synopsis

Round Six depicts a story of people who decide to become the players of a mysterious survival game that has a whopping 40-million-dollar prize at stake. Gi-hun, played by Lee Jung-jae, seems defeated by life after being fired from his job. He decides to join the survival game to win prize money. Sang-woo, played by Park Hae-soo, is Gi-hun’s childhood friend and he also joins the game as he gets in trouble at work despite all the hard work he has done to be where he is at now. The literal translation of Round Six’s Korean title is ‘Squid Game’ (오징어 게임), which is the street game Gi-hun and Sang-woo played together when they were young. It’s quite a physical game that only ends when there’s a final winner, much like the survival game they play now. It’s named as such because players are to draw different geometric shapes on the ground, which, as a whole, look like a squid.

Ratings & Reviews
  • The big plot twist at the end, for me, was not only unnecessary, it also ruined the key moments in the show that would have been flawless otherwise. And isn't it similar to the backstory of another famous movie villain known for making deadly 'games'? #ReviewAnything

  • Hunger Games Korean style. 

    You'll be glued to your seat watching this and won't be able to help pressing 'Next episode' until there's none. 😂  Good thing there are only 9 episodes. 

    Almost a great finish, but still deserves 5 stars.

  • While not satisfied with how it ended (would a season 2 work?), the ride was really entertaining & I was all for its vibrant visuals. If Halloween were a thing this year, I can already see barkadas coming in dressed as contestants, the Front Man, & the creepy doll from Episode One 😂 #ReviewAnything
