Fun fact: The original Korean title of Round Six translates to Squid Game, a street game played by the two lead characters in their childhood. "It’s named as such because players are to draw different geometric shapes on the ground, which, as a whole, look like a squid," Netflix's statement explains.

Helming the project is award-winning director Hwang Dong-hyuk, who's most known for his 2014 box office hit Miss Granny.

Round Six is set to premiere globally, exclusively on Netfilx.
