While many may overlook this and view the reality show as nothing more than basic entertainment, it may alienate others who were moved by the message of the original show. What made “Squid Game” so popular was its ability to be something completely different from other media, while still having a powerful message.

With the game show and season two still in development, there’s nothing to worry about yet. The most frustrating factor is the employees who are now out of a job and have to watch their former employers put millions into a game show that no one asked for.
