Just binged this in about 30 hours, loved it.  Concept is way out there, did feel a bit Money Heist with the red outfits and the feel of it, completely different in all other ways.  After Parasite a year or so a go, the Korean market share is increasing and getting some good airtime

Wasn't mad for the ending but it is setting up perhaps another season

It is brutal from the start!

Netflix btw

All the best programmes on Netflix recently have been non American/ Non Engish

 

Agree massively. I generally find that the flavour of European and World cinema is much more to my tastes. Netflix catching onto this has been superb.

Loved it, just finished last night. The ending takes you by surprise. Reminded me of battle royal with the gruesome action, but rather enjoyed it. The only annoying thing was the second to last episode was 30 mins then the last one is the normal running time lol

Watched it this week, finished last night.  Ending was a bit weird, particularly the 001 bit.

Imagine all that money and you change your hair to Sharon Osbourne..lol

 

Its kinda like how i wish they would change the format of 'Im a Celebrity'.

Yes was not sure the 001 bit needed

 

The hair was about as bad as a billion can get you

 

I would so watch I'm a Celebrity if that was the format!  

 

Enjoying Alice in Borderland now

That thought crossed my mind when watching it as well. I got as far as Piers Morgan in the list of people I'd like to watch competing.

Now that's a good idea for a new topic.

I've been thinking about it since that post actually, my list is up to 12 now. Steve Evans the latest. Just visioned his trousers falling down during green light, red light, shortly before being eliminated.
