Squid Game Netflix’s ‘Biggest Ever’ Series Launch

Squid Game Netflix’s ‘Biggest Ever’ Series Launch

Squid Game, a fictional drama from South Korea — is Netflix’s “biggest-ever series at launch,” the streaming company exclusively told CNN on Tuesday.

The dystopian series, in which contestants who are deeply in need of money play deadly children’s games to win cash prizes, has been viewed by 111 million accounts since debuting on Netflix on September 17.

To give that number some context, Netflix announced earlier this year that 82 million households watched “Bridgerton” in the first 28 days following its Christmas debut. “Squid Game” surpassed that number in a shorter amount of time.

The series is No. 1 on Netflix’s Top 10 lists in 94 countries around the world. It’s the platform’s first-ever Korean series to reach No. 1 in the United States.

The numbers speak to the sheer size of “Squid Games’” popularity and the speed at which it took off. But Netflix’s — and all streaming services’ — rating data comes with some important caveats.

For starters, these numbers are from Netflix (NFLX) itself and have not been vetted by any outside sources. Also, that 111 million figure doesn’t mean everyone watched the series from start to finish. It is based on Netflix’s metric of accounts watching at least two minutes of the series.

Regardless of Netflix’s often opaque accounting of its shows’ popularity, the important context is that the streaming giant’s competition is growing fiercer by the day, and “Squid Game” shows Netflix remains on top for a reason, CNN reports.

For investors, as long as Netflix keeps adding subscribers, Wall Street will likely continue to be happy. “Squid Game” has hit the zeitgeist in a significant way, and buzz is the best means to attract new subscribers and keep current ones happy. The series has also earned great reviews, garnering a 91% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Like many top streaming series, “Squid Game” has become a pop culture phenomenon. The series has generated memes and even Halloween costume ideas.

The success of “Squid Game” speaks to Netflix’s ability to craft a worldwide hit. Netflix has 209 million subscribers and the company has worked to reach audiences on a global scale.

“When we first started investing in Korean series and films in 2015, we knew we wanted to make world-class stories for the core K-content fans across Asia and the world,” said Minyoung Kim, Netflix’s Vice-President of content for Asia Pacific, excluding India.

“Today, Squid Game has broken through beyond our wildest dreams. ‘Squid Game’ gave [Netflix] more confidence that our global strategy is going in the right direction,” Kim told CNN.

Janemena Sues Tonto Dikeh For N500m, See Why

Instagram dancer, Usiwo Orezimena Jane, popularly known as Janemena, has sued actress Tonto Dikeh for N500m for defamation of character.

Recall that in September 2021, Tonto in a post shared on her Instagram page revealed that her ex-boyfriend, Prince Kpokpogri has sex tapes of every woman he has slept with, including celebrity dancer, Janemena

Janemena, who is married has now filed a petition before the Police against the actress, demanding an apology in four national dailies in Nigeria for defamation of character.

The petition written on her behalf by her solicitors, Rockson Igelige, of Felix, Igelige & Associates, described Tonto Dikeh’s claims as malicious.

Janemena also demanded a retraction of publication by Tonto Dikeh on all her social media pages.

Part of the petition read: “These malicious publications by Tonto and in the context in which it was made, was understood by Janemena to mean the following amongst other things: Jane Mena who is a married woman had and is still having an amorous or sexual relationship with Prince Kpokpogri (referred to in the publications as Joseph Egbri) who is not Jane Mena’s husband. 2. Jane Mena is cheating on her lawful husband. 3. Jane Mena has s*x tapes. 4. Janemena distributes sx tapes. 5. Janemena’s sx tapes (old and very recent ones) are in possession of PRINCE KPOKPOGRI (Joseph Egbri) with which he will use to blackmail our client any moment from now.”

Janemena also asked that the actress tenders an unreserved apology to her and pay the sum of N500 million as exemplary damages for the malicious publications.

Janemena’s lawyer also warned Tonto Dikeh that legal action will be taken against her if she failed to meet their demands within one month of receiving the petition.
