Squid Game amazes in so many ways – and their sets throughout the show are no different! Outrageously, really little CGI was used in cases it would be pretty typical in – outdoor scenes, bigger than life items… but the team behind the Netflix hit went all out and constructed loads of the sets from the ground up.
The scale and variety is formidable, but what makes us love the work even more is the little hidden messages throughout the show. There are murals on a wall, stacked metal beds alluding to themes in the show – really every hallmark was considered.
The practical sets were a bit help in getting the actors into character and one cast member specifically had a major nostalgia moment when he traveled onto the sets of the marbles game. These impactful sets could really shipping performers! Some actors felt like they were in a fantasy land, from the colorful and laughable staircases to big kids’s playgrounds to tug-of-war platforms. The staircase itself is really motivated by a well-known piece of art!
While the dormitories may have been slightly dull looking, the size of the set was gigantic and some actors felt like they were performing in a colosseum! The prison-like aesthetic is a powerful contrast to all the environments we see during the games. The sets were not the only large parts of the show – Red Light, Green Light featured a large and appalling prop that managed to cop the show.
So many worlds were constructed in just one little space, a filming studio about 60 minutes outdoors of Seoul, South Korea – a studio where the magic of Squid Game came to life!
