“Squid Game” is the story of a group of 456 desperate players who take part in a mysterious and deadly game. Winning is getting out of debt. In the first episode, the main character receives a business card from a mysterious businessman, on which there are three symbols: a circle, a triangle and a square. We see them again in the uniform of the guards who were guarding the participants in the game.
Director Hwang Dong-hyuk and costume designer Chae Kyung-sun recently spoke about the meaning of these three symbols on the guard uniform. Circles represent rank and file workers, triangular guards are armed, and squares are for managers. Besides, the costumes are no different in showing that all the guards are like working ants in an anthill.
As if that wasn’t enough, Each of the above symbols corresponds to a letter in the Korean alphabet. The circle is the letter “O”, the triangle is part of the “J” and the square is part of the “M”. Together they created the initials of the Korean game squid, i.e. “OJM” – “Ojingeo Geim”.
