TikTok User Claims Netflix Botched ‘Squid Game’ Subtitles, Completely Changing Meaning of Show


Some Korean-speaking fans say Squid Game’s “botched” subtitles have changed the show’s meaning for English-speaking viewers.

The Korean-language drama is about an alternative world where people in debt compete in deadly games.

But one fluent Korean speaker claims the closed-caption subtitles in English are “so bad” that the original meaning is often lost.

The series has proved hugely popular since its release last month and is on track to beat Bridgerton to become Netflix’s biggest original series.

The plot sees a group of people tempted into a survival game where they have the chance to walk away with 45.6 billion Korean won (£29m) if they win a series of six games.

If they lose, they die.
