High Risk, High Reward Dystopian TV Series And Deeper Thoughts To Analyze Squid Game

What is dystopian? Why is Squid Game considered to be in this category?

Dystopian is defined by Merriam and Webster as "an imagined world or society in which people lead wretched, dehumanized, fearful lives" and according to Masterclass.com the five signs of this kind of society are:

  • Government control
  • Environmental destruction
  • Technological control
  • Survival
  • Loss of individualism

Squid Game is a story about corruption, the classism benefits of being wealthy vs being poor, and about people wanting to survive. Despite the brutal challenges in this game we also see the very human traits we all have in that kindness survives, family matters, and sacrifices are made.

The giant glowing ball filled with money is a blatant metaphor on capitalism. We see the class struggles of society highlighted with the poor being constants in death games while the rich sit back and watch, eating and drinking and wagering over the games like people at a horse race.

Our contestants are given numbers and this lack of using names takes away a piece of their humanity. The children games played to the death is also kind of fair, you play well or get lucky, you win. You don't you lose, or in this case die.

The soldiers are also victims of these games, more in control than the contestants perhaps, but not by much. We don't have names to identify them, only the shape on their masks give us a clue to them. And it's to their rank, not to who they are. They are not here to judge the contestants, only to take out those who don't win in the games.

We get to see some of the humanity left in the main characters who are competing in the games. We see it in the pieces of their lives outside the games. For example we see Seong Gi-hun, a compulsive gambler who wants to get out and take care of his elderly mother and young daughter. We see Kang Sae-byeok, a young woman who wants to take care of her younger brother since they have been abandoned by their mother. And then there is Cho Sang-woo, someone who had the chance to make something of himself, but failed to achieve that goal and now hides that fact from his proud mother. There's Hwang Jun-ho, a police officer searching to find answers to a missing persons mystery that involves his own brother.

Another mysterious character in the game is Oh Il Nam, the old man. He says he's nothing left to lose but we find out that he is not in it for the money. He leads us and the other competitors on in this episodic quest to discover what? We don't know until the last episode airs. He has had us all fooled throughout the series.
