Pyramid Game: The new South Korean series that is already being compared to The Squid Game

“Pyramid Game” is a recent South Korean series that has premiered to much attention, particularly due to its themes of psychological thriller and survival, centered around bullying. Notably, it draws comparisons to the popular series “Squid Game.”

Similar to the Netflix sensation “Squid Game,” which captivated audiences in 2021 with its deadly challenges and high stakes, “Pyramid Game” also features a game-like scenario but is set within a secondary school. The show, created by Lee Jae-gyun, explores the dark realities of bullying among students.

The series stars Kim Ji-yeon, a member of the South Korean band WJSN, alongside Jang Da-ah, Ryu Da-in, Shin Seul-ki, and Kang Na-eon. “Pyramid Game” is based on a webtoon of the same name, and it follows a group of young people who rank their fellow students based on popularity. Those who rank lowest become targets of violence and merciless bullying within the school.

Given the current spotlight on school violence, the series offers a critical perspective on the issue. While “Pyramid Game” is not yet available in Argentina, it’s likely to reach streaming platforms in the future, allowing audiences to delve into its intense narrative and themes.
