‘Squid Game’ was selected as the winner in the ‘Innovative Series of Over 40 Minutes’ at the 31st Gotham Awards held in New York, USA.
Director Hwang Dong-hyuk said that when he first wrote the script in 2009, people said it was unrealistic and strange, and that it took 12 years to show this drama to people, but it took less than 12 days to become the number one show on the planet.
Lee Jung-jae, who was nominated for the Best Acting Award in the ‘New Series’ category, did not receive the award, but it looks like they are celebrating the award together.

[황동혁 / 오징어 게임 감독 : 이걸 처음 만들 때부터 의도가 우리의 삶이 이런 게임의 연속이 아닌가 라는 생각을 갖고 만들었기 때문에 그렇게 비교를 하시는 것도 제 의도였고 당연한 일인 것 같습니다.]
[이정재 / 오징어 게임 출연 배우 : 감사한 만큼 앞으로 영화나 TV쇼 작업을 훨씬 더 열심히 해야 되겠다는 생각이 들면서 마음이 조금 더 기쁜 것도 있지만 무거운 것도 있습니다.]
