Squid Game has taken over the world in recent weeks, and some fans are so obsessed that they’ve been sending money to a bank account featured in the Netflix series.

As fans will know, protagonist Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) manages to escape the games with his life and is given a bank card loaded with the cash prize in the final episode. 

Incredibly, the numbers on the card match a real account belonging to one of the show’s producers – and fans have been sending money since the show arrived on the streaming platform.

Speaking to local media, South Korean director Hwang Dong-hyuk said that the makers of the show have since decided to close the account.

He said: ‘I heard that the producer has been receiving deposits in the amount of 456 KRW (£0.3/$0.38) from people who watched the show.

‘To prevent further deposits from happening the production team decided to close the account to avoid potential issues in the future.’

It makes sense, of course, that fans should be sending 456 KRW, as Gi-hun was referred to as player 456 during his time in the games.

Squid Game has provoked a huge reaction from TV lovers around the world – and the bank account isn’t the first time that real life details have been included in the series.

The person who shares a phone number with the organisers of the ultra-violent competition in the show recently spoke out after being bombarded with calls. 

A Korean man was receiving 4,000 calls a day since Squid Game landed on Netflix last month, leading the platform to edit out scenes featuring the number.

The series sees debt-ridden contestants competing in deadly tasks inspired by playground games, set against a dystopian backdrop in which the poor can sign away their right to life.

Squid Game is available to stream on Netflix.
