Squid Game has already become one of the most-watched Stories on Netflix. Since its premiere on September 17, this original production, filmed in South Korea, has already reached thousands of followers around the world.
And the more the days go by, the more theories emerge about the series and the organization’s methods of recruiting players. And one of the main questions users have is that while we already know how players enter the game, we know very little or nothing about the employees of the game, those who wear red overalls and masks with different symbols. according to their rank.
If Gi-hun had taken the red envelope, maybe he would be a goalie and not a player?
This is where networks, and their users, come in and have shed light on envelope game theory. For those who haven’t seen Squid Game, players are recruited by a mysterious costumed character, who intercepts them in the Seoul subway and offers them a simple game with two envelopes: one red and one blue.
The only one of those games that we see is that of the series’ main character, Gi-hun, an unlucky man who is addicted to games and who works as a driver after being fired from the assembly plant. of cars where he worked and which closed.
When we see this scene in the first episode of Squid Game, Gi-hun is given a blue envelope, which is the color of the players’ uniforms, while the organization member uses the red envelope, which is the color of the goalkeepers. and employees of the game located on an island, in the depths of the basement.
The theory circulating on the Internet is that if he had been a candidate to be a soldier, employee, or director of games, he would have received the red envelope to play. But it also raises a fundamental question: Are employees there on their own accord, or are they also going without knowing the nature of the game?
