Top 9 Shows To Watch After Squid Game Kdrama

Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Top 9 Shows To Watch After Squid Game Kdrama. The Squid Game has taken over the world of Netflix fans. Because of its new and warped take on classic children's games like Red Light Green Light, the Korean drama has become the most successful Netflix show ever.. Squid Game's well-drawn characters and thought-provoking study of capitalism are also reasons why it’s number one in 91 countries worldwide. After bingeing all nine episodes, you may find yourself yearning for more. Squid Game season 2 has yet to be announced by Netflix, however there are similar shows and movies to fill the space. Here are 9 other series and shows that are similar to Squid Game’s genre. And if you’re a fan of Squid Game, you’ll definitely enjoy watching these shows too. So let’s get started.

1. Alice in Borderland. 

Alice in Borderland, like Squid Game, has characters who must play and win games or face dire repercussions. It's also a harsh and bloody examination of human nature, as you might expect. Based on the manga of the same name, the series follows Arisu (Kento Yamazaki), a hardcore video game fan, and his friends as they become stuck in an alternate, dystopian version of Tokyo. They are forced to play a number of games, such as Tag and Hide and Seek, while they are there. They will survive and progress if they win. They will perish if they lose. If they miss a game, their "visa" to the Borderlands expires and they (you guessed it) perish. 

2. Sweet Home. 

This fantasy horror drama ticks many of the same boxes as Squid Game, including survival, complex relationships, and brutality. Sweet Home is about a group of people who shut themselves in an apartment building while monsters begin annihilating humanity. People who are slain transform into monsters that mirror their inner wants, such as one inhabitant who transforms into a Glutton Monster. In order to live, Hyun-soo (Song Kang) forms a group with several of his neighbors. They all have their own emotional baggage, making the building uneasy while the monsters feast on them. 

3. Battle Royale. 

If you've ever played Fortnite, you're familiar with the plot of the 2000 Japanese film Battle Royale. It's one of the genre's most influential films, based on a novel by Koushun Takami (many see The Hunger Games, among others, as owing a lot to Battle Royale). A class of ninth graders is taken to a deserted island in a totalitarian country, and everyone is given a weapon, a map, and supplies. They will all perish if more than one of them survives three days. That means the youngsters must kill each other until just one winner remains. Battle Royale was so divisive in its day that it was banned in some countries and never saw an official release in the United States. 

4. 3 Percent. 

The life-or-death scenario in 3 percent is more figurative than physical, but the Brazilian dystopian thriller, like Squid Game, is a compelling reflection on class injustice and capitalism. In the episode, the majority of the world's population lives in poverty in the inland. Only 3% of the population lives on the Offshore, a wonderful utopian utopia. Every year, 20-year-olds are offered the opportunity to travel to the Offshore. To get there, individuals must pass a series of examinations, which range from a simple interview to solving a fictitious crime scene. Those who complete "the Process" do not gain money, but rather an escape from their mundane life into paradise. 

5. As The Gods Will. 

The 2014 Japanese supernatural horror film Red Light, Green Light, like Squid Game, involves lethal rounds of children's games like Red Light, Green Light. Shun Takahata (Sota Fukushi), a high school student who spends a lot of time playing violent video games, is the protagonist of the story. His school transforms into a battle royale arena one day, and he and his pals must fight to survive. They are not alone; children throughout Japan and the rest of the world are subjected to identical examinations. Shun and the other players are fighting for their lives as well as figuring out who is behind this insane predicament. 

6. Alive. 

Alive, like Sweet Home, does not revolve around games. The 2020 Korean film is a survival narrative of a friendship formed during a difficult time, similar to Gi-hun and Il-nam in Squid Game. Joon-woo (Yoo Ah-in) is a young man who is living alone in his family's apartment when a zombie epidemic breaks out. He confines himself inside, but as food, water, and internet access run out, he becomes insane. On the edge of committing suicide, Joon-woo notices a signal from someone in the building across the street. They communicate by walkie-talkie and send supplies via zipline. The zombies, on the other hand, are relentless, and the couple will have to work together to survive. 

7. Escape Room. 

Six people receive unusual invites to participate in an escape room with a $100,000 reward in this 2019 thriller. They come from a variety of backgrounds: one is a college student, another is a successful day trader, and the third is an Army veteran. When they enter the complex, it is locked, and the levels become increasingly dangerous. They also notice that some of the rooms remind them of how they were all the lone survivors of various calamities, such as a plane crash or a vehicle accident. But who will be the lone survivor in the end? 

8. Darwin's Game. 

The series is based on the manga of the same name and follows Kaname Sudo, a high school student who receives an invitation to play an app game. When he opens the program, Kaname discovers he's been dragged into a deadly conflict in which people battle one another with abilities known as Sigils. Darwin's Game, unlike other battle royale stories, does not force individuals to join. Instead, they prefer to play, whether for financial, ego, or other motives. Meanwhile, Kaname continues his effort to put an end to the game for good.

9. The Hunger Games. 

It seems odd to include this blockbuster franchise on the list, given that millions of people around the world have watched it. Even still, if you somehow missed The Hunger Games, now is your chance to catch up. The films are set in a dystopian future divided between wealthier and poorer neighborhoods. Every year, the districts are required to send two teenagers to the titular deathmatch, in which only one survives. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) hails from the impoverished District 12 and enters the Games in place of her younger sister. Katniss is entirely focused on making it out of the arena and back to her family, using hunting abilities she learned while growing up in the woods. While The Hunger Games isn't as violent or graphic as Squid Game, it does address similar themes of rich vs. poor and the human condition.
