The Owner of the Mobile Number From the Squid Game Series Is Spammed With Calls
A 40-year-old man from South Korea can no longer lead an ordinary life, as he receives 4,000 messages and calls every day from those who want to take part in the deadly game. The phone number featured in the Squid Game has turned out to be real. And now its owner is overwhelmed with thousands of messages and calls every day.
In the series, released on the streaming platform Netflix, a mysterious man reveals a number to call to join a deadly game where the lives of the players are at stake. 456 people compete with each other in six children's games. If you win, you will receive an incredible cash prize, but if you lose, you will die.
After the release of the first episode, some viewers, out of curiosity, began to send messages to the number they saw, but it turned out that it was real. And now this coincidence greatly interferes with the ordinary life of the owner of the phone.
A man told that he receives about 4,000 phone calls day and night. At first, he thought it was spam since he did not know about the existence of the series, which one of the callers later informed him about. He also stated that he could not change his number since this is a work number and he has been using it for ten years.
As it turned out, not only the owner of the lucky phone suffered but also his wife. Her number is exactly the same with the exception of the last digit, so she often receives messages and calls by mistake.
According to Korean publications, the company behind the series for Netflix is currently in talks with the owner of the number to fix the problem.
One of the Korean presidential candidates also offered his help. He wrote a post in which he announced that he was ready to buy the number for 85 thousand dollars in order to save the owner from the inconvenience caused.
The South Korean drama series Squid Game premiered on September 17. It took it less than a week to top the Netflix worldwide chart and become the most-watched show on the platform. This is the first South Korean project to achieve such results.
