Squid Game Season 1 Recap
The competition is limited to two contestants: Gihun and his childhood best friend, Cho Sangwoo (Park Haesoo). The final contest begins with a coin toss, symbolic of who these men are and who tried to do everything right in life.
He worked hard, obeyed the rules, believed in the system, and yet ended up almost penniless. Sanwoo, on the other hand, is the guy who cuts corners to get ahead. Before the games, he was a wanted criminal who embezzled his clients.
Like the coin toss that starts the game, all of his decisions were illusory because both men ended up in the same place. They are just two sides of the same coin. As the game progresses, Gihun defeats Sanwoo, but so does he.
Come to see how rigged the game really is. He refuses to kill his former friend and by offering mercy he rebels against the game. But that’s a useless gesture as Sanwoo takes his own life to give Gihun victory.
Gihun “wins,” but by that point, he’s already lost everything that matters. The show continues a year after Gihun’s “victory.” His life isn’t much different. Yes, he has the money.
But while he was competing, his mother died and his ex-wife took her daughter to Los Angeles. And as a result of everything that happened, Gihun almost gave up life.
