'Squid Game': Top trending series rejected for 10 years before making Netflix splash
In previous headlines, Briefly News reported we often hear of successful people stressing the need to never giving up on one’s dream. However, testimonies of people making it after years of rejection are often more effective.
Squid Game, a South Korean TV show on Netflix that has captivated audiences worldwide, has quite an interesting story.
According to the Wall Street Journal, for almost ten years, studios rejected the show.
The publication reports that the show’s creator, Hwang-hyuk, first came up with it a decade ago while living with his mother and grandmother. However, multiple bids to pitch the show flopped, with studios turning down the fictionalised show terming it too unrealistic.
Hwang was so desperate for money that at one time, he was forced to sell his laptop to survive; hence, he could no longer write the script.
