For Netflix products, the production level must be guaranteed.
Take a look at the cast. As a male lead movie, the cast of male actors can also be described as strong.
The male number one is Jung-jae Lee who once appeared in “New World”.
The second male number is Hae-soo Park, which is relatively less well-known, but his starring “Prison Playbook” has so far achieved a high score of 9.4 on Douban.
In addition to the two male protagonists, there are two heavyweight male stars-Yoo Gong and Byeng-hun Lee.
In contrast, the heroine is a new model (not strictly a heroine).
To introduce the plot, the male protagonist Seong Gi-hun is an old man who has a serious gambling addiction. His wife divorced him three years ago, and his daughter was also raised by his wife.
Now Gi-hun’s day is to do odd jobs every day, and then steal his senior mother’s bank card to bet on horses.
It is foreseeable that gambling will not end well.
When he was middle-aged, he owed a debt. Seong Gi-hun, a gambler, sat at the subway station in confusion, lamenting his life. A handsome man in a suit and leather shoes came over and asked him if he wanted to play a game.
Seong Gi-hun was of course not interested, but the other party opened a suitcase with a lot of money in it. Seeing that this handsome guy looks friendly, he agreed.
The game is very simple, it is to play the picture, whoever can turn the picture over, even if he wins, the other party will give him 100,000 won.
Seong Gi-hun fought first and lost. He was penniless and had no money for the handsome guy. The handsome guy said that a slap on him would be worth 100,000 won.
After being slapped several times, Seong Gi-hun still refused to admit defeat and finally won once. The opponent gave him 100,000 won.
This is simply a profitable business. Anyway, if you lose, you will be slapped. What does it matter? Not long after playing, Seong Gi-hun won a lot of money.
After he was satisfied, the handsome guy left a business card for him, saying that if he wanted to play games and make more money, he would look for him.
Seong Gi-hun is an old river and lake, worried that the other party will cheat him, and does not intend to continue playing games with him.
However, his life is distressed and he owes loan sharks. If he does not repay the money for a month, his kidneys and eyes will be sold.
Moreover, the daughter will follow her mother to the United States soon.
Perhaps, once you have money, you can compete with your ex-wife for custody of your daughter.
For Gi-hun, who is desperate, he has to try even if there is a slim chance.
So after he tried to make a phone call, he was taken directly to a mysterious place by a set of anesthesia at the agreed meeting place.
So, Gi-hun decided to participate in the game. After he decided to play the game, he was sent to a mysterious place.
But what he didn’t expect was that this was an extremely crazy and cruel game.
This place is said to be a prison, and it is also a game center. The people here are still being monitored without blind spots. In the background, they are really players in the game.
Here, Gi-hun found hundreds of people in similar situations.
There are female thieves who have immigrated for their parents, old men who have had brain tumors and are running out of time, high-achieving students who pay off their debts, and mothers who have just given birth to children, and more are gamblers who owe huge debts.
A total of 456 players came to this place, played round after round of games, and finally decided one person and won 45.6 billion won in prize money.
When everyone thinks this is just a normal game, they still don’t think that the ticket to the game is their life.
Here, there is a group of like-minded people, each of whom is heavily in debt. The first game they play is: one, two, three, wooden people.
A super simple game, when the ghost says “one, two, three, wooden man”, it can move, and then if it is detected to move, it will be eliminated.
When they formally played the game, they realized that being eliminated means being shot.
When one person was executed, Gi-hun’s legs were frightened, and a group of people began to move back and were shot by machine guns.
The players just started laughing and joking, but the puppets don’t care about emotions and shoot the moving people directly.
Now everyone panicked and started to flee frantically, but the visual detection system was coupled with dozens of machine guns, and all the moving players were shot.
From the perspective of background monitoring, the names of these players were also removed one by one.
This is the cruel game system.
Use your own life to play children’s games.
It takes only five minutes to pass this game, follow the rules of the game and walk to the other side and cross the red line. Gi-hun can only give it a go and race against time to move forward.
It is a new drama full of high energy, and Jung-jae Lee’s work is really trustworthy.
Netflix has offered another cool drama, “Squid Game” this thrilling suspense work is worth chasing.
