Throughout Squid Game, several characters have attempted to cheat by trying to find out the titles of the different games. But a simple look at the walls of their dormitory would have been enough to obtain all the necessary information: painted drawings indeed represent the six events, a detail that escaped all the protagonists of the series, but also many viewers.

The role of soldiers

We suspect it, but the geometric shapes displayed by the helmets of the soldiers are not there just to look pretty. The troops are in fact divided into three categories: the circle represents the lowest rank, the triangle the soldiers trained in combat and the triangles the lieutenants. A classification inspired by the hierarchical ranks of ant colonies!

Inside men

During the marbles game (in episode 6), Ji-yeon evokes the movie Inside Men that Sae-byeok has never seen. This reference was not random since one of the main actors in this film is none other than Lee Byung-hun, who also appears in Squid Game as In-ho (the masked man)!

Pictorial reference

Great attention has been paid to the decorations of Squid Game. Among the inspirations of the series, let us quote the Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher and more particularly his work Relativity (1953) which refers to the intertwined stairs that the participants of the game cross on several occasions!

The number 1 passes through the stitches of the net

Oh Il-nam, the old man sporting the number 001, reveals in the ninth episode to be one of the masterminds behind the terrible organization that organizes these killing games. But viewers could have anticipated this revelation from the first episode! The latter indeed escapes the scanner during the very first part. So even if he had moved, he would not have been executed by the doll!

Gi-hun, announced winner?

What if the whole part of Squid Game was designed to favor Gi-hun? Personally recruited by Oh Il-nam (the two men met “by chance” before the resumption of the game in episode 2), the main protagonist inherits during the game his jacket bearing the number “001”, announcing his future victory in the final test of the squid game.

Deaths announced

The death of each of the protagonists has been announced in the series. Gangster Deok-su jumps off a bridge in episode 2 (foreshadowing his deadly fall); at the start of the series, Sae-byeok threatens a man with a knife pointed at her throat (she later succumbs to a throat injury); Ali goes into debt by stealing money from his boss (his bag of marbles will then be stolen); Finally, Sang-woo plans to kill himself in episode 2, before finally taking action in the last episode.

Password

In order to finalize his game registration, Gi-hun is given the instruction to repeat a password to the soldier present at the meeting that fixed him. The passphrase is “red light, green light” which refers to the rules of the first game, the bloody version of “1,2,3 sun” (red and green lights tell participants when to move and when to stop) .

456

The numbers “4”, “5” and “6” appear regularly in Squid Game. In addition to the number displayed by the main protagonist Gi-hun, these numbers also make up the sum won by the winner of the game (45.6 billion won), but also the bank code used by Gi-hun during episode 9 ( 0456).
