South Korea's dystopian drama Squid Game has become Netflix's biggest series launch with 111 million people watching the show within its first four weeks.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that mixing social allegory and extreme violence, Squid Game features characters from South Korea's most marginalised fringes, including an Indian migrant and a North Korean defector, playing traditional children's games to win 45.6 billion won (€33 million).
The Korean wave is not likely to subside immediately: in February, Netflix announced a plan to invest $500 million (€432 million) this year alone in series and films produced in South Korea.
