“Pyramid Game” is one of the best K-Dramas of 2024 so far. According to film critic Nemo Kim, “‘Squid Game’ and ‘Pyramid Game’ are unique in the way they offer audiences around the world a glimpse into some of the real-life circumstances in which many South Koreans live.” The themes of the two works are all too familiar. It is important to note that for South Koreans, the debt situation of “Squid Game” participants does not only exist in a fictional dystopian world.”

He added: “It could be argued that many people around the world suffer from similar situations, but South Korea is known for its lack of job security. The school setting of “Pyramid Game” is the same. South Korean schools are known for the school’s social hierarchy. »

Sociologist and author Nancy Wang Yuen noted: “Audiences love shows like ‘Squid Game’ and ‘Pyramid Game’ because speed is part of a game – and that makes it easier to watch. The fact that these are based on games rather than evil or unknown factors makes them more digestible. »
