UK schools are asking parents not to let their children watch the ″squid game ″ series

Many schools in the UK are urging parents of their students not to let their children watch the South Korean series “Squid Game”, which is currently the most watched series on Netflix in more than 90 countries, including Portugal, and is recommended for viewers over 15 years of age.

With unprecedented global success, the South Korean dystopian play, created by Hwang Dong-hyuk, imagines a vicious world where people marginalized in traditional children’s games compete with each other. The winner can win millions of dollars, and the losing players are killed.

“Hundreds of bankrupt players accept a strange invitation to participate in children’s games. The gift waiting for them is attractive, but the consequences are dangerous,” Netflix said succinctly.

Speaking to the BBC, Gareth Nichols of Sir Francis Hill Elementary School in Lincoln said there was a small group of students around the age of six “within the school” who “discussed the series” and played some scenes about the series.

He told BBC Nichols that he had “instructed the students to check the access of the devices in their homes as they were watching the series without their knowledge”.
