The Squid Game has not yet finished extinguishing its flame as one of the most important sensations of Netflix.

Being in the center of the scene brought problems to the production of Netflix, which was once again questioned.

Now, the accusation was more severe and has to do with the way in which the woman was represented.
Some viewers pointed to misogynistic aspects in the plot of The Squid Game, so the creator of the show, Hwang Dong-hyuk, he had to go out to defend himself. The first complaint had to do with how one of the characters, Han Mi Nyeo, has relationships with the bully of the participants and lends itself to this as a way to guarantee their survival. Given this, the showrunner assured: “I thought it was something a human would do when put in the worst possible scenario.”.
On the other hand, the decision to put naked bodies in VIP rooms was criticized. The statues chosen by the production were of women and this was also seen as a negative way of presenting them. Nevertheless, Hwang, He was again forceful with his defense. “It was to show those with power and to what extent they could denigrate other people. Not all paintings are women. Each VIP would have at his side a woman and a man as figures. It is not accurate to say that it is a reification of women. I used the painted bodies to show how VIPs objectify people “, he assured.
