The South Korean survival drama ‘Squid Game’ has become a hit on streaming platforms. It has also turned into a rage on social media after netizens churned out some hilarious memes out of the show by giving it a Bollywood twist.

Check out some of the tweets here:

The show had hit the headlines recently after the makers were accused of plagiarism. According to a group of netizens, the series has blatantly plagiarised scenes from the 2014 Japanese movie ‘As The Gods Will’.

Fans of the Japanese film took to the micro-blogging site to point out the similarities between the series and the film. From survival deathmatches using childhood games, to close-up shots of giant doll heads in the game of ‘Red Light Green Light’, the countdown clock, and other things were found to be similar.

In defence of the show, the series’ director Hwang Dong-hyuk mentioned that the script had been in the works since 2008, per The Korea Herald.

Not denying that the scenes are similar, the director said that he has been working on the project for over a decade and at the time, the first game had already been fixed as ‘Red Light Green Light’. Not wanting to claim total ownership of the story, he did say that at such times, he is forced to say “I did it first.”
