It's hard for me to go on with my life': Netflix edits parts of Squid Game series to end harassment case
Sylvie Claire / October 8, 2021
Squid Game, this phenomenon at the origin of many facts these last days in our country and elsewhere in the world is still talking about him! Following the broadcasting of the series, a Korean woman was victim of harassment. In reaction, Netflix decided to modify some passages of its series!
With more than 4,000 calls a day, one Korean woman is going through hell. I receive calls and texts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to the point that it is difficult for me to go on with my daily life. It's a number I've been using for over 10 years, so I'm pretty baffled. People are contacting me day and night, Money Today reports. The success of Squid Game has made life difficult for this Korean woman. At issue is the number on the business card given to each of the game's participants in the Netflix series, as explained by Allociné.
Indeed, this number refers to the personal line of a lady, who since then is a victim of real harassment.
Action reaction, Netflix decided to modify the passages of the series where the number appeared. This will allow this lady to find her life before, without changing one iota of the plot of the successful series.
The Korean series, in first place of the top of consultations in more than 70 countries, could become the most watched work at its launch on Netflix, ahead of Casa de Papel or The Bridgerton Chronicle.
